Newport Harbor, Rhode Island

Look at this sweet boat. Isn't it a beauty? Welcome to Newport, home to some of the most gorgeous sailboats in the world. I took this pic as we approached the harbor yesterday. I was hoping to see the Puma racing boat built for the Volvo Ocean Race, but it had already left the shipyard for the October start of the race in Europe.

These are some pics I took last night at twilight of the marina we docked at. I love the way the metal building reflects the setting sun.

The slip next to us has a satellite dish rigged up to the pylon. Guess they live there. That's the beautiful Newport Bridge in the background.

I shot a bunch of pics from the top deck and threw together a quick David Hockney-esque panorama. Click on the above photo to enlarge.
