It was our annual pilgrimage to Newport, Rhode Island. Which isn't really an island, however, it is one of our favorite destinations. The weather was gorgeous, and even though it was a holiday weekend there were no hoards of people. My first day's pictures are gone- Sorry Ab! We were walking out to Goat Island and talking with some folks fishing over the bridge. They were catching squid a plenty. One caught a robin fish. It is a very homely fish that grunts at you and his fins look like wings. Especially when he is flapping them about, which this little guy did all the way up. Ab held it up and posed with the fisherman but alas it is lost :(
We did have a great time laying by the pool, having tapas and beverages at Loca's, and shopping up and down Thames street.
No lobsters from Aquidneck this time, but we did get fudge and hand sized peanut butter cups from the fudge shop. Since it was a holiday my boat crane was idle, but we did go on a great sail around the harbor.
Just driving around looking at the new and old mansions can occupy your time. The homes down there are impressive!
Hope you all had a great holiday with family and friends. We had a wonderful time in Newport- as always! :):):)
