Weekend in Newport

Talk about a birthday treat! This past weekend, Mr. TBF and I headed down to Newport, Rhode Island for a weekend getaway. We started Friday evening with a brandy in front of the fireplace at our B&B, then headed to Fluke Wine Bar & Kitchen for a delectable dinner. Saturday and Sunday we toured the breathtaking mansions, The Breakers and Rosecliff, and strolled along the Cliff Walk. It was the perfect weekend - filled with oysters, sunshine, and long walks. Thank you, Mr. TBF, for planning the whole thing!

    1. He's the best, that man of mine! I think really he just was trying to distract me so I wouldn't complain about getting old.... :)

  2. Newport is my favorite place - my husband and I were married there! You'll have to back in the summer and have a drink on the outdoor patio at 22 Bowen - it's spectacular!

    1. Oh! Where were you married? So many beautiful places. WE had a bite / beverage in the indoor patio on The Landing - it was so pretty with the sun bouncing off the water. I definitely want to go back in the summer and tour some other mansions and eat at some of the seasonal restaurants that were not yet open this weekend...

    2. We were married at Easton's Beach - they have a second floor rotunda ballroom that overlooks the beach on one side, river on the other. There is also a carousel next to the rotunda that was on during our cocktail hour for kids in attendance! Now we can bring our baby there to enjoy the carousel and wedding memories.
