Newport, Rhode Island

My niece, a student in Dublin, Ireland, is staying in Newport for the summer trying to make money working as a waitress.  She has a job in the New York Yacht Club.  We went to visit her today.  What a lovely town, full of people.  The weather was superb.  Of course we had to see the Mansions.  My choice Rosecliff (where the Great Gatsby was filmed) was closed today because the Newport Flower Show is being held there tomorrow.  We went, instead, to the Marble House built by the Vanderbilts   
Newport is only one hour fifteen minutes from Boston so we shall be visiting it again soon and this time we shall see Rosecliff.
After the mansion tour we had lunch in The Deck.  A great end to our day.
