November's Newport

Photos by Salt Water New England

This time of year, those who venture out onto the bay almost completely have the place to themselves.

  1. Going to Newport in 2 weeks to see the mansions decorated for Christmas. Will definitely stop into The Royal Male. The jacket and hat are to die for!

    1. I've never been there, Anonymous, 7:26, but your comment and these photos make me want to take the drive.

    2. As I am sitting reading this, I am anchored out with about a hundred other boats who watched the night air show as part of Veterans Day Weekend and the final Blue Angel Show of the year, in Pensacola. Of course we are all freezing with it being 61 at 7:00 in the morning.

  2. What on earth is that tower boat thing?

    1. It's a pushing tug used to push against fuel or container barges. A 300 ft fuel barge while empty floats pretty high and a barge with containers stacked four high is fairly tall as well. Putting a pilot house that high maintains greater visibility -- and yes, it looks strange without the attached barge.

  3. Agree with earlier comments. Swoon--that jacket! Lovely photos.

  4. Wicked cold here and windy. Beautiful photos, but 'on the water' is the last place I want to be today.

  5. Nice photos, especially of Trinity Church on Honyman Square/ I attended Trinity regularly as an officer candidate at Navy OCS in 1982.

  6. These are beautiful and memorable scenes. All of my times in Newport were during autumn-winter-spring, so I never experienced the six weeks of summer.

  7. The light...especially toward evening...simply magical.
    Thank you for sharing these lovely photos.
