Cliff Walk Trail
The most imposing of the breathtaking Gilded Age homes found along the trail is "The Breakers," shown below.
We had good luck with our B & B in Newport. The Ivy Lodge was happily situated close to the attractions and restaurants, while at the same time offering a peaceful and secluded respite on the tree-lined Clay Street. Darlene, the innkeeper, made us feel most welcome. When we entered the lodge's front door, we were blown away by the 33 foot high oak-paneled hall. Our quarters in the "Victorian Room" proved to be sumptuous. We were tired from our full day, but eagerly anticipated our 8:30 game with the Donald Ross Society at Newport Country Club on May 8th.
