The final full day was complete and it was time for dinner, boy was I in for a treat. I finally got to see someplace in the daylight!!! The group had decided, on the recommendation of the local analysts to have dinner in Newport, RI at the Red Parrot. This was 45 minutes away and it was a beautiful drive.
Newport was one of the more important ports in Colonial times and also was known for the pirates that were celebrated by the town people.
Newport is also the location of many of the summer mansions of the the Astor's, the Wideners, and the Vanderbilt's. JFK and Jackie got married at St. Marie's Church here in Newport.
After dinner, we walked around Newport. Like I said, it is a beautiful town and is definitely a place I would like to go back and spend more time. There were a lot of shops, and it did mind me of Monterrey with an upper crust East Coast feel.
