Hi all! Sorry I've been MIA for a week or so - I was busy studying for the PMP exam. I took it yesterday morning and I passed! Woohoo!!
I am very excited and relieved - it was a very large study effort and now I'm happy to say that I am a certified Project manager.
Getting back to where I left off - I wanted to show you some pictures of Sarah and my trip Newport, RI.
About the titld - totally random reference...
Do you remember when we were little and we played the MASH game? Masion - Apartment - Shack - House? Well these people obviously did very well on that game...
This place should be called the land of mansions! I swear - everywhere you look there are amazing houses and HUGE mansions.
The first thing we did was walk along the water on the "Cliff Walk". This walk takes takes you along the shore line and gives you a grand view of all the mansions along the coast.
One of the grandest and largest mansions is The Breakers.
This is a massive mansion overlooking the sea.
Here are some additional views of the Cliff walk:
After walking along the sea side for a while, we headed to the front sides of the mansions for a different perspective. Here is The Breakers front gate.
Next door to The Breakers is Salve Regina University. Can you imagine going to school here with these mansions as your neighbors?
After the mansion tour, we took a drive around the island. More amazing homes and beach views were everywhere.
After a quick lunch, we went downtown for some shopping. The marina is so cute!
It was a great day trip and we were lucky to have great weather too. It threatened rain all day - but luckily held off. On the drive home - I made Sarah stop to look at these awesome lotus blossoms.
What an amazing day!
What - you came here for knitting?
Here's my progress on the February Lady Sweater - my olympic event!
I love it so far - I'm using the yarn I dyed with Sarah. I hope I can finish it before the Olympics are over!
