You may remember then we first talked about the Where in the World I am Going on July 4th? game, one of the clues was about street lights.
Well, here is the proof in that pudding. The first street in the U.S. to be lighted with gas.
Some boats on the Newport Harbor
I love the shot of this Gorton's Fisherman look-alike in his fishing boat complete with American Flag flying proudly from the aft.
You can faintly see the Newport bridge, or Claiborne Pell bridge, which spans over Narragansett Bay, in the background.
Adirondack chairs, lined up neatly on the dock next to the Coffee Grinder, on Bannisters's Wharf. A perfect spot to sip your coffee while watching the boats sail by in the harbor. Can you hear Sittin' on the Dock of the Bay, playing?
Or the sailboats on the harbor.
How bout a ride on this one?
Italy is never far from my heart or mind, and it turns out Newport is no exception!
Lots of shops, galleries and seafood restaurants line the wharf area.
Looking back on the city of Newport, with the Trinity Church steeple in the background.
Where are the best harbor towns you have visited? Why do you love them so?
Don't forget, today is the last day to enter the La Cucina Italiana cooking contest. Head over to Blog from Italy to get the details. Time is running out!!
