Walking Down Memory Lane in Newport, Rhode Island

Rob spent his teenage years growing up in Newport, Rhode Island and when we visit New England we always spend a little time in Newport.  We crossed the bridge into Newport at sunset so we were able to snap a few photos.  The first things I saw when we got off the main road was this lobster
The next 20 or so minutes were spent racing from place to place snapping photos before the sun got too low.

We drove to first and second beaches.  Rob spent a lot of time at those beaches in his youth.  He said, "This brings back a lot of memories, both good and bad."  I did not ask him to elaborate.  We had dinner at a local place called Anthony's Seafood.  Not only did they have great food, they sell fresh fish and seafood in the front of the building.  While we were in Newport we picked up a Christmas gift for a family member and headed home.  If you ever get a chance to visit, go for it.  Newport is a beautiful place.

    You mean you were in Newport and didn't stop to see my daughter at "Only in Rhode Island" on Thames Street?? Shame on you! *laughin*
    Hope you had a great time back on the island -- and you're right, those beaches bring back a lot of memories to anyone who went to MHS! Enjoy yourselves and stay safe!!
