Day two in Newport was rainy and windy. Not the best day for sight seeing. But we did get to see a couple of the mansions. (Sorry – they don’t allow indoor photography.)
Then we got in a little shopping, followed by lunch at a neat little Irish pub. I have to say – they’ve added a lot of new things to the menu while still offering up some of their classics. I like the new menu a lot better. In the past, I really only went along to humor the hubs, but this time the food was delicious. If you’re reading this Elizabeth, I was definitely thinking of you when I took this photo.
The neat thing about these photos is that there are patches up behind the bar from a lot of fire departments around the country. The one where my husband volunteers is up there, along with several other local volunteer fire departments. It was fun to see so far from home.
After we warmed up a bit, we took a walk through town, shopping and having fun. We had to stop at the smallest yummiest cookie shop down near the water. Soooo good.
Then we warmed up again with a dip in the hotel pool. It was so nice in there. I’ve never seen it so crowded before, but with the weather as wet and chilly as it was, I wasn’t surprised.
I will have to find some of my Newport photos from the summertime – it is so gorgeous then.
Hope you’re having a terrific week!
