Newport With Kate And Emily

A few weeks back Kate, Emily and I took a day trip to Newport. I love day trips especially in the summer and this one did not disappoint! It was a hot day but we took it slow visiting a winery and then lunch. . . so relaxing!

I had never been to Newport Vineyards but it had always been on my "to visit" list! I was happy to finally check it out! It is really pretty! They offer tastings, tours and wine by the glass. We went for the tasting (at $12 it is a great deal)! We loved being able to choose from all of their wines and my favorite was their Tranquility blend! I almost bought a bottle but it was $22 and I decided I didn't really need it (living on a budget is hard)!

After our tasting we jumped back in the car and drove downtown. We scored an awesome metered parking space right across the street from the main shops! We walked around a bit and checked out the restaurants before choosing Salt Water.

Anyone who knows me knows that when I saw this sign I was sold! I mean come on, a sangria bar!? What could be better than that!

I tried the Head Sail and it was delicious! I had a yummy sandwich too! Kate and Emily enjoyed their lobster rolls (I don't eat seafood). We sat outside (but in the shade) and had a great view of the boats and water. It was really nice!

Oh and of course it would be a trip to a "beach town" without stopping for fudge! Kilwins is one of my favorites so I couldn't resist. I got the Sea Salt Caramel and it was so good.

Since we took such a leisurely lunch (and ate late) it was time to head out once we finished. We had such a great day that I didn't want to leave! I'm so glad we didn't something different though and took a day trip instead of just meeting up for lunch in Boston!
