I drove to Newport, Rhode Island today. Cloudy most of the day. A few drizzles. It was only a couple hours drive. I was thinking of going up to Providence to check things out tomorrow but after reading about everything interesting in Newport, I'll probably just stay here. I'll report my findings later....and I'm sure there'll be a bunch of pictures also.

I posted something for Monday and my visit to Martha's Vineyard. Hope you didn't miss it. Did you check out that video? Isn't Dr. Pausch such an amazing guy. I am feeling better today. Thanks to all for the get well wishes.

I do not have internet access at this campground. It's a town campground, and like most municipalities, are behind the times. I had to search out for a WiFi access point. After a week in Cape Cod, which seems to be a little behind in modern conveniences, I did find a Barnes & Nobles (Chapters/Indigo) for you Canadians, with a Starbucks and WiFi access. I had typed up my Martha's Vineyard narrative prior to coming. But this one is coming to you live. Just hoping my battery holds out. Though I am prepared and have a back-up. But don't know how logging back in will work for this internet access I had to pay for. Oh...and I'm also saving as I go along so if anybody is reading as I'm typing you might get to a point that is mid-sentence.

I had supper at the "Blue Plate Diner". I won't bore you with what I had, but the waitress reminded me of that TV show "Alice". Same New Jersey accent. The restaurant had the real look and feel of what a Diner should be. Lots of stainless steel, booths and lunch counter with a whole line of stools.

Well, it's getting late and the place might be closing for the night. I might come back tomorrow night and update my blog or you might have to wait until I get to my next campspot with internet access (New York or New Jersey somewhere).


PS. OK. There was no Blog Fairy. They changed the website programming and it automatically inserts pictures. Did it with my Martha's Vineyard update.
