For my first post after finally regaining access to the board, I decided that something light & airy was in order. I was born in Newport, RI, but moved away when I was 6 months old. There was a natural curiousity about my birth place. My oldest son lives in the Boston area & we were there for a visit over Labor day. We spent one day in & around Newport. Neat place, but I'm not sure I could afford to live there. These are from a beach front park. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5.
