Weekend Wanderings!

Another weekend of shopping so we only got out one day, but it was the perfect day to get out for a walk at the light house. We usually go off season and when we got there, the parking lot was full and people were parked on the grass, but we lucked out and found a good spot.

One of the reasons it was so crowded was, we came just as the couple was saying, I do! The guests drove and the wedding party came in a trolley, what a fun way to travel and a beautiful place to say your vows. Though they had an audience of picnickers, as well.

We walked around the lighthouse and went down to the other side to enjoy the views of Newport and the sailboats. Bill decided to take a rest while I walked around and took shots.

The tide was going out, so it was the perfect opportunity to explore further down the coast. We usually stop at the end of the walk and come around, this time we scrambled along the cliffs. With the low tide, we could walk through the crevasse in the rocks.

I thought we could come up eventually, but then we came upon the end and there was no way I could get across that. It was a beautiful gorge and it was mesmerizing, watching the water come in and out.

Looking back, you can see how far away the lighthouse is, my short walk turned into a hike and scramble over a rocky landscape, but it was fun exploring a new area.

On the way home, we stopped to enjoy the Ospreys, I guess he bought dinner home, she was enjoying a fish he had bought to her. We may be leaving a day early. I know I cannot handle a full day drive, so we will leave in the afternoon on Friday and stop midway, that way we can enjoy the ride. Hopefully we will have wifi and I will post from camp.

Great photos, good idea to break up the drive into two legs!

Looks like a lovely Sunday Drive and hike. Looks like it as a great day weather wise also.
