Travel Photos, Summer 2013: Newport, Rhode Island

I have no idea what happened to August, but I just realized that it’s already been two weeks since my last update here. I’ve had a number of possible topics swirling around in my head, most of them quite heavy, but I can’t pin down a proper thesis to work from, so no actual posts have yet emerged.

So instead, enjoy more photos that I promised a long time ago of some of my adventures earlier this summer. These are from Newport, Rhode Island.

I tried to comfort the stone lion and tell him that soon Aslan would come and bring him back to life, but I don’t think he heard me.

  1. Wow. Those are lovely. And the one of Rosecliff’s “backyard” makes me want to offer to commit a number of crimes in order to have it.

  2. I visited Newport as well but lacking for time, stuck to the Vanderbilt homes and didn’t get to see Rosecliff. Gorgeous! Thanks for posting.

    1. Glad you enjoyed the photos! I thought I’d taken more of the houses, but I guess I was overawed and forgot to use my camera half the time.
