At my wife’s childhood home, the question is whether to walk to the horse barn or along the beach (which is really the Narragansett Bay). On this afternoon, we chose the horse barn first. This takes us through a New England beach-community neighborhood for a couple of miles.
I take me camera and discover views. They talk about who lived in this or that house four decades ago, critique gardens and house additions (most of which appear to ruin the beach-community look with ostentatious want-to-be mansions… Sorry, Newport is across the bay). Not being from a water-dominated home-town, I am amused at the boats in people’s yards. Thus, this small walk documents boats in various states of readiness for summer fun.
