Newport's Treasures

A Delightsome Life
Kathy of   The Delightsome Life  hosts this  beautiful theme each week...  and as an avid fan of  Victoria magazine,, I was  totally enraptured with this months  issue...



and the article on Seaside Grace and Charm....

of Rhode Island... Im sure it was in part due to the fact that I experienced Newport's charms last summer!

So excited about our adventure, I actually traversed the lengthy bridge to the glorious seaport with anticipation instead of my usual dread!





Another very unusual part of our excursion was that it would be done on sea....

but truly Newport is best seem from asea...

Once safely aboard our afternoon vessel, the fun and excitement began as we carefully manuevered out of our slip and into the harbor

 The  quaint village    is known best for its seaside  welcoming shops and  docks...
but  I think  Newport is  best known for their  magnificent mansions  along  it's  
undulating coastline!!

Each architectural  wonder   displays the  grandeur of  a bygone era...   l  the genteel life of the  Victorian age.

 Around each coastal bend,  another majestic property  offered  a glimpse into that  privileged time!

 Mesmerized by the  beauty of such fabulous home,  our coastal  drive  following our    sailing,  offered  a few other  residences  of renown...

The next time  we  visit   Newport,  a  tour of these wonderful homes will definitely be  on our agenda....  For me, today, it has  been a refreshing  reminder of the  dazzling  day we experienced  last summer In Newport!
