What a wonderful week Robin and I spent together getting to know one another in person. She was a delightful guest! I just took her to the airport where she'll be getting back to her life in San Francisco. Just like when Marianne left, I miss her already.
Here I am photographing her photographing a seagull!
She was fascinated by everything here, even the ordinary.
This photo was taken at Colt State Park in Bristol.
We strolled through the gardens and arboretum at Blithewold and I discovered a pond which I had never seen before. It was fun sharing something new with her.
These koi were coy! They just wanted to stay beneath the surface although the sun was calling them.
We had a wonderful lunch here in Newport.
Most of the shops have water and treats for doggies that pass by!
Lions and griffons on my favorite planter at Blithewold.
And this sweet little Viceroy we saw on the Cliff Walk.
And here's the gang at Coggeshall Farm. One burro, one horse, and an entire family of heirloom cattle. They are massive and gorgeous!
Lilac Robin is scouting for more wildlife.
Looking for shells...
Marco!!! Polo!!!!! Marco??? Lolo????
And so she continues to sleuth along the water's edge.
I'm told she loves it here.
I'm sure she'll be back ;)
