What a difference a day makes, today doesn’t have a cloud in the sky. All the nonsense weather from yesterday has blown out to sea over the Atlantic Ocean. We loved Newport, particularly the narrow waterfront streets. Checked out the mansions; Vanderbilt’s “The Breakers” pictured above was used by Alan Bond as team accommodation for his Americas Cup campaigns. Eisenhower and JFK used mansions in Newport for their “summer White House”.
We then visited the New York Yacht Club’s Newport annexe which was undergoing renovations. The rest of the day was spent seeing New Bedford, Cape Cod, Falmouth, Boston and heading up to Portland, Maine. About six hours on the road.
