Newport Trip - Summer 2008

I know, I know...I took these photos last summer, but these winter blues got me down. So here's a few pics that I took while Steph and I were down there.

The Marble House is my favorite mansion down in Newport. I'd love to live there for a day...or a week...month...couple of years?

More Marble House

People enjoying the view.

Chinese Tea House

Rosecliff...This was another gorgeous mansion. We wanted our wedding reception here...but no go. Too much $$$...unless there are anonymous donors?

Steph liked the statue a little too much...

View out from the fountain.

Nice balcony

I just wish the Newport Historical Society had a little more taste than putting a chain link fence around the property...they clearly didn't ask an architect.

Angles and Shapes are cool...

I loved being in the front of the house and still being able to see through to the ocean.

Rosecliff front gardens.

I pulled over on the side of the road for this shot.

The seagulls weren't even phased by me climbing closer to them.

I think this one was hamming it up for the camera.

Providence Flower Show

This past weekend, I made it over to the Providence Flower Show. I was expecting more flowers and such, but it was more of a Infomercial Heaven. But I did manage to get a few shots.


Some kind of special orchid

A zen garden setup.

Some kind of fiery flower

And another...

I think these were fox somethings...I wasn't really good with remembering names.

Some yellow tulips.

and some more flowers I don't know the names of.
