The Mohegan Bluffs on Block Island was probably one of my favorite places to visit while on my Block Island Vacation. I mean, I enjoyed the food and the peace and the quiet and the company… but nothing beat that mud! I NEVER experienced anything like it before and I am always up for something unique and the Mohegan Bluffs on Block Island is certainly THAT and more.
Listen, I’m all about really experiencing the culture of the area I visit. If there is something the town / country is known for – I’m in! When I went to Maine, I ordered lobster (even though I’m not really a fan). When I went to France… you know I ate snails (gagging the entire time). But I DO IT because I really want to submerge myself in what the locals do.
Well when you visit Block Island, you have to hit up the Mohegan Bluffs.
I’m warning you right now… it’s quite a walk down to the beach. If I want to put a positive spin on it all, I guess I can tell you that the walk is supposed to be part of the fun. I’m saying that with a smile… a forced smile.
Mohegan Bluffs On Block Island – The Walk Down
I wore sneakers. Say no more.
Not only do you have to actually walk down a few dozen steps to get to the Mohegan Bluffs, but then you have to make your way down these rock piles. My knee has been acting up the last few weeks, so I was super nervous. Thankfully, Bill took most of my weight and there was no bloodshed. So, here’s a tip – bring sneakers to get to the beach.
It was one of the more crowded beaches we visited, but with good reason. I’m getting to that.
Mohegan Bluffs on Block Island – Rock Piles
There are these rock piles everywhere – not only at the Mohegan Bluffs. I’m talking about all of Block Island. It was so great to see. You have to wonder how old some of them are and what memories are associated with them. 🙂
When we first got there, we jumped right in the (Freezing) water! It took a while to get used to – but it was fun once we warmed up! Then we started noticing these blue people. Everywhere. I knew I wasn’t hallucinating because the rest of the group saw it too. We asked someone what it was and it turned out to be dried clay from a mountain ledge to the left of the beach.
Off we went.
Mohegan Bluffs on Block Island – The Magic Clay (It’s Not Really Magic)
It doesn’t look too daunting right? I suppose it wasn’t. You have to get to the top of that middle rock to get to the clay.
Naturally, after we climbed down, my friend Tracy and I made our own little rock pile. It wasn’t very high – but that’s not the point.
Here’s our baby. 🙂 Isn’t she beautiful?
