when josh's family came to town this weekend we did some touristy things that we usually don't do, but i'm so happy we did. one of them was take a ride on madeleine, a 72-foot sailing schooner. it was a 1.5 hour trip around newport harbor and narrangansett bay. breathtaking views and from the water we were able to see hammersmith farm, jacqueline kennedy onassis's childhood home. i can't believe this was our first time on the water while living in newport, but i want to do it again soon. the wooden masts and white sailing fabric against the blue sky were so beautiful to me.
