A little inspiration

I love texture, don't you? This is a dock near where I'm staying. Water fascinates me; I could sit all day just watching it flow in and out.

 This is the coolest sculture I've seen in a long time. It's called "The Wave". I think that says it all. People were lining up to have their pictures taken in front of it.

I was walking along one of the wharves that Newport has developed into shopping areas and there was this anchor. What's really great is the "flooring" around it is cork, so if a child climbs and falls, they'll land on a soft surface.

I'm grateful for how our timeshare works with points; I wouldn't have been able to come to Newport otherwise. It really is an old colonial town; some of the streets are so narrow, only the residents are allowed to drive on them. Going home tomorrow; back to reality.

I love being near water too, not in it just near it. The sculptures are great, I love the wave one as well.
