In the first hour upon arriving in Rhode Island:
We flew into Providence RI around 10:45AM.
We found our rental car.
Loaded up all the suitcases and while Steve was putting down the hatch, Glenn ducked under his arm and Steve accidentally hit him in the face with his fist.
We have laughed about it all day.
“Watch out for that right hook.”
“Be careful, Steve might hit you.”
Todays was the only day we didn’t have concrete plans. We spoke to the server at our lunch place and she recommended we drive to Newport CT. It was only a 30 minute drive so we were off.
It’s a lovey town situated right on Narragansett Bay. We strolled around admiring the old houses, some dating back to the 1700’s.
We even had a Tiller Firetruck drive right by us!
Our hotel is super cool. It looks like it’s been converted from something into a hotel. Lots of concrete (walls, ceiling and floor), exposed venting and pipes.
After dinner we went on a gondola ride along the Providence and Woonasquatucket rivers. Marciano was our gondolier. It was a cool evening on the water and it was fantastic. He spoke of the sights and he even serenaded us.
It was such a good day but as of 9:06PM, we are in for the night while Mom and Dad went to the bar.
Tomorrow we head to Connecticut!
