They came after us to tell us to move!

Looks like they were just messing with us...maybe.

NAVY_II

Great name for a boat :)

PEARL_NECKLACE

RI's state motto.

And finally, cue the Miami Vice theme...

Evidently they were doing a photo shoot of some sort.
Great cruise :thumbsup:
Best $35 I've spent in a long time.
Free :beer:, great captain and an overall good time.

We were in Newport about a year ago this time for a family wedding. Loved going there, we also took a harbor cruise and agree that it was worth the money.

One of my favorite pics I took there Text Little fuzzy, but I like it anyway.

the carriers in person are amazing. I'd like to see a battleship in person...but they don't sail anymore :(

Nice pic :)

I took my share of sunset pics from the cruise, but unfortunately there weren't any real significant subjects we passed near sunset.

Save for the House On A Rock.

cherrytwist and Sluggo, first of all nice photos :thumbsup:

Second, I'm thinking of going to Newport before I have to go back to work at the end of the month. Can you give me any info or tips that would help me out, like with traffic, places to stay and eat, things to do. All I know that I'm interested in is the tours of the mansions and now from you guys a harbor tour. Any other suggestions?

Gotta love the anti-bush banner on the side. As a side note, I think they may have featured that home on PBS's This Old House. (or a very similar one)

Be careful...we all know you're taking pictures of our ships to blow them up, but why post your scheme on an internet forum?

Geez...

its not a carrier.. that is a Amphibious Assault Carrier we call them gator freighters..
they carry helicopters and harriers only and a crapload of Marines

MUCH MUCH smaller than even a Forrestal class CV.

I think I'll have to firebomb that house now ;)

I'm sure banners like that really help the morale of the sailors on that ship :disgust:
