We took our lunch out to the bay and ate right on the water.
where we saw this:
and then this:
After lunch we walked the famous 'Cliff Walk' that is a mostly paved trail along the cliffs that runs behind several of the Newport Mansions.Some of the mansions we saw were The Breakers, The Elms, Rosecliff, Marble House, and Chateau Sur-Mer.
On the way to the Cliff Walk we were behind this huge group of people who were really prepared for their day out. (Backpacks, water bottles, sweat shirts, hats, etc)
One woman even had a whole carton of Tropicana Orange Juice. See?
Where the heck did she think she was going?! At no point along the Cliff Walk are you more than a 10 minute walk back to full civilization and/or a grocery store.
There was also a boat show yesterday. There were hundreds of boats anchored in the bay and what a gorgeous day to be on the water!On our way home we stopped at the Newport Vineyard. We walked around for a few minutes but didn't end up getting any wine there.
Such a fun day out of town!! We still have plenty to explore in & around Boston but when something as great as Newport is only an hour and fifteen minutes away you just have to take advantage!
