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.
