we headed to second beach in middletown, ri last saturday to have drinks by the water. my bro was in from out-of-town and we thought it would be a way for him to see the best part of newport. we were pleasantly surprised by the horseback riders galloping down the beach. there were also lots of surfers too. i could have sat on our fleece blanket for hours and watched them. and then the sunset that night projected pink and pastel hues our way. if you watch project runway, it reminded me of the colors in fabio's collection. crazy combo of things, but i just closed my eyes and took deep breaths and was thankful for the sensory delight.
