    Bob, thanks for the pictures.  I remember going to Dutch Island as on kid on a Bay Queen cruise and thinking it was the coolest  place in RI.

    It’s a beautiful corner of a small world. I’ve never been out to Dutch Island but I’ve looked at it from the Jamestown side many times.  Simply beautiful down there. Nice pictures!

    Great pictures Bob. How long was the paddle to the island?

    I have kayaked around Dutch Island for years- fishing and going ashore  for walks.  That ended I think in 2004 when the DEM started to enforce a no trespass rule.  Frequently boaters  would anchor up and camp there.  I do not know why DEM started enforcing the rule.  I found other places to go.  Hopefully the no trespassing rule has been relaxed.
