Westerly Grills All the Things

5.5 miles; Westerly, RI [This is a post from the distant past. I’ve been poking through the vast number of Draft posts on my site to see if there’s anything that might still be of interest. Thought I’d throw this one into the mix.] Way back in the Before Times, I had planned to lead […]
