Some of Newport, RI


It was still wintery when we traveled through Rhode Island en route to Boston.

Newport was beautiful and quiet. Not many people were seen in the streets, probably due to the cold weather. The town was small and likable.

Cliff Walk along the mansions by the sea. A great stroll path.

As we arrived in the late afternoon, the mansions tours were closed. Even if we were there in time, I doubt I wanted to take a tour as the fare was pricy to look inside some rich family’s house.
