Newport Portals & Textures

Flowers are starting to bloom in the Newport area. Bring Your antihistamines Vicki!

We went to dinner with friends Jimmy & Sandra, in New Bedford, & enjoyed the seaside restaurant.

Yesterday, while the rest of the gang was watching the red Sox win a game, I took a long walk around New Port. I really love the old buildings, old architectural details, & stones. I made it over to the Tower that I first saw a few months ago on the History Channel. It is aligned with the sun so that it marks the solstice. Nobody knows who actually built it.

                                          These are actually only half of my pictures!

Wow. What a lovely lot of photos. What a beautiful piece of architecture that stone built 'set' of arches is. I wonder what it was used for? Was it once a circuar tower or perhaps a sort of Market meeting place?
