Tickets Bar and Grille for a nice warm breakfast while we figured out what to do with our day. The train ride we were going to take was cancelled, the winery tours were cancelled, the seal watch boat cruise was cancelled, so we had to improvise our day a little bit. After brunch we went back to the hotel and watched another episode of Downton Abbey, you know...as you do. Then, we headed out to Greenvale Vineyards. The tour may have been cancelled, but we could still drink the wine, right?
The snow had stopped but the wind was causing some major drifting. At times, the wind was blowing snow around so much we couldn't even see in front of us.
We then tried to get to Newport Vineyards, but they somehow seemed to be positioned right in the path of all the drifting snow and we couldn't even make out where to enter their lot. We scratched the second winery and did the 10-mile drive instead. This took us past all the historic estates, Salve Regina University, various beaches, Fort Adams, Yacht Clubs and other incredible looking houses. All that driving made us hungry so we stopped into Via Via: The best and only real brick oven pizza in Newport (at least, that's what their website says)! Being from New York, and loving pizza as much as we do, we are definitely pizza snobs. But I have to say we were both very happy with our slices! Well done Via Via!
The Mooring Seafood Kitchen & Bar for dinner, where I was most excited to eat on this trip.
Zillow Real Estate Iphone app to find out how much they cost (holy-freaking batman!)
Tomorrow, our last day in Newport!
