Day 364 / 365

The other day I was showing my new girlfriend around the mansion, the 60 acre garden onto the jetty where the 3 yachts were moored then onto the garage with over 30 classic cars. Oh the look on her face was magic.
I can’t wait to see it when I tell her I’m the gardener.

Interesting Fact: Newport Rhode Island Mansions beginning in the mid-nineteenth century, wealthy southern planters seeking to escape the heat began to build summer cottages on Bellevue Avenue such as Kingscote (1839).[13] Around the middle of the century, wealthy Yankees such as the Wetmore family also began constructing larger mansions such as Chateau-sur-Mer (1852) nearby.[14] Most of these early families made a substantial part of their fortunes in the Old China Trade.

  1. Funny…I wish I had a billion dollars also. Thinking of Bare Naked Ladies song, but a million instead. Maybe not! Life of the rich, but are they happy! Ha ha!

    • That is a good question, I think the money just buys temporary happiness. Thank you very much for stopping by and sharing. πŸ™‚

  2. Newport, RI is a great little weekend getaway … The drive along the coast with all the mansions is amazing.

  3. sorry about the 366, I just thought abot davply’s 365, whereas there will be 366 next year. Hope, all of them are good ones for you!

  4. This is beautiful. It is a scene taken out from The Great Gatsby! I miss the east coast.

    Thanks for sharing. Are you doing the 365 project again in 2016! What a dedication, though. I cannot even last a week of daily photo.

    • Yes it does look like a scene from The Great Gatsby. Next year I will do stuff a little different you must wait to find out. πŸ™‚

  5. “I can’t wait to see it when I tell her I’m the gardener.” Loved this line. πŸ™‚
