Buzzing through from Mass. and on into Providence Rhode Island. Rhode Island has a long name but it is the smallest state. I had brunch just outside the state line and my neighbour suggested I make my way to Newport. The strange thing is that I have not seen a single foreign tourist, possibly because all the hire cars have US license plates so it is harder to distinguish them. However I had a lovely time as a fake US tourist whiling the day away eating ice cream and staring at the peeps.

I did make some friends, here they are

Buddy and his ride

Found a place to stay on the 138 heading out of Newport over the tallest scariest bridge that took me past Jamestown.

The tent  was up and I went to get in range of the WiFi and then it chucked it down. Lucky I pulled in early tonight.
