Today, Dad and I shall visit Newport, Rhode Island.
We plan to enjoy the sea, as my old sailor father loves the water. I imagine that we’ll see plenty of lighthouses during our trip.
In Newport, we’ll definitely visit some of the Newport Mansions, too. I love visiting castles, palaces, plantations, and fine homes. It is good to see that some rich folks made beautiful settings for their lives. I wonder if the current crop of plutocrats will bequeath posterity residences worthy of visiting.
If we have some extra time, I would like to visit the Naval War College Museum, as well.
See my post on the “Newport Mansions.”
