Around Newport Harbor in May


The success of any trip to Newport is primarily a function of how much time one can spend on the water and how little one can spend on land.

  1. Beautiful! And I love that rocky coast! We don't have that here in the South. The closer you get to the coast, the flatter everything is. Flat, flat, flat!

  2. Your phrase, ‘...how much time one can spend on the water and how little one can spend on land’ makes me think of a story about Clingstone, the house on the rock in the next to last picture.

    The late Henry Wood, who owned the house, was finishing a tour when an elderly gent who may not have had all his faculties said, “Gee, this is great Henry. And how much does she draw?" True story or just a clever line, it’s a good one.

  3. Sadly we aren't going to make it to Newport this year, but already have our July 2018 trip scheduled. The house on the rock always fascinates me. Incredible area. cheers🕶

  4. I've heard Clingstone referred to as the mother-in-law house - lol.

  5. Looks like Commissioning Day at Harbor Court! Got to visit NYYC Station 10 during our stay in Newport last September. It's the first clubhouse of the NYYC and has spent time in Hoboken, Glen Cove, Mystic Seaport, and finally Newport.
