Ahhh… The warm sunshine, the gentle breezes, the traffic? Yup, it is Summertime in Rhode Island and that can mean only one thing. No, not the sound of the crashing waves in Misquamicut. Not the screech of a seagull looking for the last crumb of your clam cake in Narragansett. Not even the smooth soft
