Chocolate cake looks so much better under candlelight
After drinks we walked around downtown Providence, found a street festival with an awesome live band, danced our booties (and dinner and dessert and drinks) off, and finally headed back to the hotel before we fell asleep on the spot.
Welcome to The Elms
Nothing says "We love Jesus" like a church sign covered in glitter (downtown Providence)
Sunday morning we headed to Newport with the goal of seeing the Bellevue mansions and checking out the Cliff Walk. We had breakfast at Annie's on Bellevue, then walked up and down marvelling at the summer homes of former upper class Americans like the Vanderbilts. Thanks to the wicked heat wave, we were dog-tired and decided to skip the Cliff Walk (but we'll be back) and decided to buy a ticket and explore The Elms.
How great is this one shot of the Garden?It was a great overnight trip and we are already looking forward to going back when it cools down a bit to explore the Cliff Walk. If you ever get the chance to visit Rhode Island, we highly suggest it.
