We walked up to Tobacco Bay Beach, which is quite steep in parts. What a disappointment, a tiny beach area! Oh well! In the Town Center, at noon, is a dunking, singing, dancing, and musicians. We had some refreshments which we bought at a local market, and sat on a bench outdoors to take in the ambience.
After a while we took a bus at the bus station into Hamilton. Enjoyed the scenery along the way. We walked up and down the main street, stopped in a few stores, then took the bus back to King's Wharf.
Day Two we took the bus back to Hamilton, then another bus to the Bermuda Underwater Exploration Museum. Very interesting, with some good exhibits. Walked around downtown Hamilton, took the ferry back to King's Wharf and explored the shops at the pier. Our ship departed at 4:30.
We toured the Marble House first. The earphones are great. What opulance and wealth! The grounds are spectacular as well.
Walked back to the bus stop and took the bus to the Breakers. We would had walked had it not been raining. The houses are about a mile apart.
We loved the Breakers. Lots of history in both houses. We considered doing a third mansion, but decided to return to the port area and walk around for a while. Lots of interesting shops. Bus transportation was great, and if you're a senior citizen, you pay half price!
We're looking forward to returning to Newport another time, either on a cruise or by car from PA.
