    Trip to Newport

    June 30, 2017 in the United States

    Big trek to Newport involving a 45 minute walk to the bus, change of bus and 1.5 hour journey to Newport. We then walked for 1/2 an hour to the start of the cliff top walk. A great walk along paths and rocks past some huge mansions. Same journey home except Mike gave us a lift from the bus stop, for which we were hugely grateful. Only an 8.5 miles walk but with the travel to and from seemed a lot longer.
    Graham and Pete both enjoyed a refreshing swim in the sea. I was chatted up on the bus by a man who was bordering on special needs and we nearly froze with the excessive air conditioning on the bus. Despite these challenges we had a really good day.

    Newport RI

    June 12, 2017 in the United States

    Best of today: Wickford - bridges over Narragansett Bay - Newport - Cliff Walk

    After another good breakfast, we departed Comfort Suites, West Warwick. We headed south. First stop Wickford. A smaller, more lived-in version of Essex CT. Worth the detour on our way to Newport.
    Nine in the morning and scorching hot, not a cloud in the sky.
    The "avoid tolls" filter on the Garmin meant we were being brought around Narragansett Bay the long way.....the very long way....to get to Newport. A quick piece of in-flight re-programming got us back on track south, over two massive bridges. Great views from the bridges, my co-pilot assured me, of the bay and the yachts.
    We did the walking tour of Newport. Among the sights was the first synagogue in US, the site of the first reading of any state's Declaration of Independence & the oldest continuously operating tavern.
    Then on to the beach and the cliff walk. Two hours in hot sunshine, with a light breeze.
    Newport is very civilised. Even though there is a long beach, the place is not commercialised at all.

    Our hotel was in Middletown just north of Newport. Woeful wifi which ruined what was otherwise a good hotel. We went for a stroll. Visited the Christmas Tree Shop, which did not sell Christmas trees or any Christmas stuff. It did however have the largest stock of absolute rubbish for sale. Stuff that gives shindogu a really bad name.

    New Port

    May 15, 2017 in the United States

    Auf unserer Fahrt zum nächsten Etappenziel ging es heute zunächst nach New Port. Ein kleines, verträumtes Hafenstädtchen, in dessen Hafen im Sommer wohl Dutzenende millionenschwere Yachten liegen. Da jedoch noch nicht wirklich Sommer ist, waren leider auch nur 2 Yachten zu sehen. Halb so wild, denn wir waren ja auch nur auf der Durchreise.
    Rund um den Ocean Drive sah man dann aber, wo und wie die Schönen und Reichen so wohnen. Da kommt man sich als Häuslebesitzer mit seinen 626m2 Land schon recht klein vor, denn 626m2 ist hier schon gefühlt der Schuppen im Garten groß, von den Häusern/Villen/Schlössern und erst recht den Grundstücken mal ganz abgesehen. Natürlich alles innen und außen nur vom Feinsten mit Marmor, Pool und englischem Rasen vor der Tür. Seeblick und Golfplatz um die Ecke verstehen sich von selbst... Wir haben für 2 Millisekunden daran gedacht, hier in der Nachbarschaft seßhaft zu werden, aber den Gedanken auf Grund des dann eher weiten Weges zur Arbeit doch recht schnell wieder verworfen.
