a road trip! Part 1

Sorry for the silence of late. My sis came in town a couple of weeks ago and we spent some time playing tourists here in DC and then bailed for some true touristing elsewhere.  We'd ventured up to Boston a few years ago and decided we needed to spend a little more time in the area meandering a little on the journey up and back.

Hurricane Isaac threatened to dampen our plans just a bit but he mostly behaved himself. He made for some great skies and sunsets though and kept the weather on the pleasantly cool side.

First up was a stop in Newport, RI. We basked in the sunshine while sailing the bay, soaked up the hoity-toity ambiance in the shadow of countless humungo houses, ate tons of amazing food and moseyed along the seashore. It was heavenly.


Sometimes you just need to take a step back and find a way to breathe deeply, forgetting all the stress and grind of daily existence. We took it and it was so worth it!
