My visit to Newport, Rhode Island, and Cape Cod, Massachusettes last week was a delight for all of my senses. I took long walks to explore historical sites, the harbor, various parks, museums, architecture, and rocky coastlines.
I took hundreds of photos as I walked many miles through villages, neighborhoods, along Bellevue Avenue and the harbor. I toured mansions and museums, took a stroll along Cliff Walk, and visited Purgatory Chasm.
I enjoyed more than one lobster roll and salad lunch while people-watching along the harbor.
I chatted with a delightful lady taking her afternoon stroll along the harbor. She lives alone in a lovely saltbox style home and goes for a long walk every day to enjoy some fresh air and to get out and about. She has eight children and grew up in Germany before marrying an American soldier. Elsa is 96 years old!
I read three books while I was away but did not visit social media or watch TV even once. Solitary travel allows for complete freedom.
The images are in no particular order. I was unaware that I had taken my photo while touring Chepstow, one of the Newport Mansions, now a museum.
