Newport sights

Must be time for another blog post, huh? I don't know about you, but I'm tired of looking at that ugly fish. ;) I have a couple of sewing projects in the works, so I've been busy. I haven't forgotten, though, that I promised you more photos from our Newport trip, so you'll get some here.

Newport has so many beautiful old buildings (and lots of trees). A walk one afternoon resulted in these photos.

Our walk took us across the Purple People Bridge (no motorized vehicles allowed) and gave us a view of the Daniel Carter Beard Bridge (a.k.a. Big Mac Bridge - can you imagine why?), both of which cross the Ohio River between Cincinnati and Newport.

Here's a lovely view of a hillside seen from the bridge:

This also makes for an interesting view, but I forget what it is... and am too lazy to look it up. :)

Sometimes there are interesting sights ON the bridge. We saw a lot of red that day, because it happened to be the opening day for the Cincinnati Reds.

Then there are sights like this...

... or this (hmm... that guy got around!):

Okay, that's it for now. One more round of pics from the Newport visit will be coming. Hopefully I'll get them posted before we go there again. Ha.

Ha! I was giving myself a little more leeway than that! 😜😂

Did the fish get stuffed and !mounted on the wall? These photos are much easier on the eyeballs!

Lovely pics! The Purple People Bridge looks a bit more blue (or maybe periwinkle... Periwinkle People Bridge?) to me. Is it really more purple in person?

I feel like this comment is leaning dangerously close to a tounge twister!

Jenny said...

opps... not watching my spelling! Tongue twister! 😝

Grandma G said...

Thanks, ladies! I think the fish got eaten... I forget to ask. It's definitely not on our wall! Ha. The bridge color in the pics is pretty accurate. It looks more gray than purple, to me. :)

Jess is not wearing her "In theory" coat? Pfft! :)

It seems like a really beautiful city to walk around, with great views everywhere.

Grandma G said...

That coat seemed a little dressy for just a walk. ;) She did wear it while we were there, though!

Definitely a great city for scenic walks!
