ships sail and motor past in  Newport Harbor

Above: Hundreds of watercraft are sailing and motoring in every direction in perfect view from the elevated points of this spectacular peninsula.

ships in  Newport Harbor marinas

Three masted tall ships, wooden schooners, giant steel navy vessels, hardy kayaks, power boats, sleek yachts, homemade sailboats, and restored mega yachts all race back and forth through the choppy dangerous seas right in front of us.

Above: Students aboard cute little boats with tiny little beach towel sized sails fly across the troubled waters like angry ants on a hot afternoon. On a day like this, I could easily sit here for eight hours and not be bored for a minute.

Above: The panoramic views are nearly indescribable. For six dollars we can park here overnight, but no RV’s are allowed (another example of how our rig trumps more expensive travel vehicles)

Above: Kelly wheels us to Sachuest Point National Wildlife Refuge, a big green area on Google maps spread out over many miles. This refuge is just a half-mile from the beach where they charge twenty dollars a day to park.
