Day two – the aim was to make the final two hour drive to Brewster in the Cape Cod region – enjoying the sights along the way.

As per usual Lachie had us up bright and early and so we headed into Newport for a yummy breakfast at the Hungry Monkey Cafe in the old quarter of Newport Rhode Island.

Then we did a 10-ish mile drive around town…

…which included stops along the The Cliff Walk.
(Unfortunately the end of walk is yet to be repaired post Hurricane Sandy, however there was still ample opportunity to enjoy the views and see some of the infamous Newport mansions.)

Notes for next time (there are always way to many good things to do!):

* we really should have made time for The Breakers – “the grandest of the Newport Summer cottages” * Touro Synagogue, http://www.tourosynagogue.org/, (not open on Saturdays), * Picnic lunch & swim at Eastons Beach – just East of Newport – if the weather is nicer.
