As a Newporter, I suppose it is somewhat expected that I like (maybe even love) the beach. But the truth is–I don’t. Well, at least not from the hours of 9 AM until 5 PM. During those hours I would rather be anywhere than the beach. The dentist comes to mind.
But after 5 PM, I am more than ready to go. The crowds have dissipated, the sun has cooled its proverbial jets, sunblock can be left at home, and the $15 parking fee can be spent at Subway on sandwiches.
My children may not know what the beach looks like before 5 o’clock, but if these photos are any indication, I don’t think they’ll mind.
