Newport, oh, beautiful Newport, RI

It's June 2015, after one of the snowiest winters 02840 ever endured, the garden is looking lovely at Linden Cottage, and Newport, after appearing quite wrecked late this winter, has recovered and is ready for your vacation this summer. Newport's summer started early in May with the Volvo Ocean Race stopover which attracted some 125,000 visitors. I'm sure short term holiday rentals and B&B's were thrilled to get an early summer vacation season start.

We have a new family hatched this early spring, born in our sun room gutter. Mama Mourning Dove is now on the lookout while fledgling gets the strength to fly away on his own.

We recreated the Studio this winter, all new from top to bottom. Quite an undertaking but so worth that clean, crisp feeling it offers now for all our family and visiting guests.

The kitchen with new paint, lino, and counter top, fully decked out.

New queen-size bed from bottom to top. New Berber carpeting throughout.

and of course, the bath, with new water-saving john, and gleaming new shower head.

Fully Air-conditioned, there's also a lovely ocean breeze through the windows every afternoon. Here's our lovely Newport in video.

Oh, our beautiful "City by the Sea".
