Newport, RI

We stayed at the "Yankee Peddler Inn",an old house circa 1800's.

I had Room #9 all to myself,which I loved only it was supposed to be haunted. No encounters for me, thank goodness.

View from one of the marinas at Newport. It's such a beautiful place. No wonder the rich used it for their summer periods.

Newport RI is like turning back the clock. Luxury does still exist. What a lovely view from those mansions.

Newport is one place that has long been on my list of places I want to see. This all looked wonderful. Your room was wonderful.

I'm ashamed to admit it, but since you asked, I would have been too chicken to stay in it. I wouldn't have gotten a minute's sleep.

D, what a fun time you had! I adore that yellow house, too. I made it to Providence, but we didn't make it to Newport. I want to go so much. I'm glad you had fun.

XO,
