Pete Townsend owns this sailboat.
We took a tour around Newport Harbor in a vessel like this one. Being a morning cruise, they gave us complimentary mimosas.
Since I helped hoist the jib, they gave me an extra mimosa.
Maybe next time we'll take a boat like this,
...or maybe sail on a pirate ship.
Under the four trees would be a fun place for kids to play. Someone built a fort here--a lot like the ones our kids like to make.
We went to Mass at St. Mary's Church, where John F. and Jackie Kennedy were married.
Trinity Episcopal. I loved its traditional New England-style steeple.
The Unitarian Church near our bed-and-breakfast had a lovely carillon that played hymns on Sunday morning.
Our bed-and-breakfast was across from Touro Park where there is a tower that some believe might have once been a windmill. No one really knows excactly how old it is or what it's for, though; some even think it might be some astronomical Stonehenge-y type of thing.
We got a kick out of this sculpture near the wharf.
Did you know the guy who brought us tomatoes lived in a modest house in Newport, Rhode Island? I was immensely excited to learn this fact, and even though my husband makes fun of me for taking pictures of signs, I HAD to share this with you.
