newport on my mind!

as in newport, rhode island! this week i am living vicariously through my parents who are back out in newport for the week. check back next week to see where they go next, hint: sound of music.

yup, basically two vacation spots my family has been vacationing every summer for the past 20+ years! oh, to be young again!

anyway, here's a view from the deck:
yeah, here's another view from the same deck. ha! ha! such a beautiful view, i am SO jealous! love how on yacht is going in while the other is heading out! what a life!!!

like i said before, i am not going to wait until the last minute to book a flight to providence! i am so on it next year, lol!
how about this sun set view? pretty spectacular, huh!
'here's a view from a beach my parents used to get their kayaks in and out of the harbor. another beautiful view! can you imagine all the LOBSTER swimming in that water! HEAVENLY!!!
not sure why my mom took a photo of the viking hotel? all i remember was that it was the 1st place we stayed at on our first trip out to newport...years ago!!!
i would post more photos, but i'm not sure my mom would appreciate me photoing photos with out asking. hee! hee! afterall, she doesn't even know about the ones i snuck from her above. gotta love kodak gallery! hee! hee! who me do something without asking? lol! yeah, i was the trouble maker growing up...still am! ha! ha! ha! one of the many reasons i was shipped off to boarding school! lol!

oh well, hope you enjoyed the photos! i'm thinking a lobster dinner is in order, probably thursday night! oh to be on the east coast....yes, i am super jealous right about now!

...so much fun!!!

hope y'all had a wonderful weekend!  we were up in lake geneva, wisconsin for the weekend. it was so hot up there, ick! so hot i spent saturday at the beach instead of shopping! lol!!

saturday morning we had breakfast over at our favorite restaurant, scuttlebutt's! we had the usual eggs benedict....YUM!
below is our view of geneva lake from our table. of course, i forgot to charge my phone last night and requested a table next to the closest outlet, lol!
after breakfast we ventured across the street to the beach  for the rest of the day.
sunday morning we got off to an early start and headed back to chicago. i ended up having lunch over at the dusable marina harbor at friendship chinese. i ended up having sushi. sushi OR chinese....no brainer!!
friendship chinese is located along the riverfront between navy pier and the chicago yacht club.

it would have been perfect if it wasn't 99 degrees outside, UGH! all i really wanted to do was jump into Lake Michigan! UGH!!

on my way back i couldn't help but take a photo of this fabulous shot over looking navy pier!

nothing like summertime in chicago!
