Newport, RI

The in-laws are in town, so we have a few days of fun activities planned. Today we went to check out the mansions in Newport, RI. Specifically, The Breakers and The Elms. I'm always kind of torn about touring opulence, but just let it go for the day and enjoyed myself. I think it would be boring for kids, what with the hour-long audio tour, but is a nice day for a group of adults.

Right in the midst of the mansions is Salve Regina University. I'd never heard of it before, but man, what a beautiful campus--right on the ocean, housed in old mansions.

I always enjoy photographing Patrick with statuary.
