Lovely sail in to Newport this am. This is a city I really want to come back to and stay for a few days. So much to see and do! We went for a walk along the famous "Cliff Walk" a public pathway right along the ocean that is open to all and goes right in front of all the famous mansions.

We enjoyed the guided Newport Trolley Tour that took us along the famous ten mile Ocean Drive, and past the many beautiful "Gilded Era" Mansions located on Bellevue Ave.
