Where We Live – Newport, Rhode Island Photographer
It’s time once again for the monthly blog circle I belong to with these talented ladies. I had good intentions to walk around downtown Newport and use those photos for this month, but I have to be honest that I just plain forgot! Next month for sure.
However, we have done a lot of traveling in our 2 short months of being here in Newport. As I talk to local acquaintances about doing as much as we can in 11 months here they are normally amazed at all that we have taken advantage of already so I think we’re on the right track!
I was lucky enough to win ferry tickets to Block Island and we took advantage of that last month before everyone headed off to school. We took our bikes and had such a great time biking all over that small island. We were tired at the end of the day for sure, but I must admit the girls did a 1000 times better than I thought they would with all the activity and biking. This is definitely a trip I would recommend to anyone else coming here – Block Island is so quaint and exactly how you picture a New England fishing/tourist island.
We also ventured up to Boston twice already since we have some dear friends that live there for this school year. We headed on the Freedom Trail, explaining to the children multiple times the significance of these sights, and quite frankly I’m still not so sure they get it yet! To them it’s old buildings, grave stones and people talking to us, but to us it was interesting to see all the areas on and read all the history that took place in this small area of a city and the US.
We had a rainy day last month too that we took advantage of our Family Pass to the Newport Mansions. We unknowingly toured the very first mansion built here in Newport and it’s interesting to hear how these amazing homes came to be through the years. I’m looking forward to hitting more of these homes once the cold settles in and outside activities are halted.
