Weekend in Newport

Last weekend we packed our bags and drove down to Newport, RI. Despite an ominous start with overcast skies and cooler than ordinary temperatures on Friday, the rest of the weekend was beautiful with temperatures in the 90s and plenty of sun. The pictures above are just a sampling of some of the beautiful mansions which dot the Newport coastline and much of the town.

I really like this seaside New England town which becomes a hub of activity from Memorial Day to Labor Day. Thousands flock to the town in the summer clogging the streets and filling the pubs and restaurants. It is one of those quintessential New England towns that is both fun and friendly despite the dour / boring image most people have of New Englanders.
