An earthquake, Irene, and a strange wedding guest

Amazing that all three of these events occurred in the same week: first an earthquake, or at least some minor shaking, then a our son's wedding, and of course, Hurricane Irene. Two were unplanned events,  the doing of Mother Nature, but our home was unscathed. With a house full of family and guests for Patrick and Shauna's wedding on Saturday at the Officer's Club, US Navy base, Irene forced all of Newport, RI, and, indeed, Aquidneck Island, to revisit colonial times early in the day on Sunday, August 28, 2011.

Newport home and garden spectacular

One of the most anticipated events of the summer season is the 2016 Flower Show, hosted every year by the Preservation Society, keeper of the Newport Mansions. Scheduled when gardens are usually at their height of bloom, and always when the roses bloom, the Newport Flower Show is a home and garden spectacular not to be missed. Get your tickets now for the Flower Show at Rosecliff, a 3-day event for gardeners and shoppers, which showcases some of Newport's most important real estate.
