Newport Harbor, Before the Boats Arrive

April and May – those pre-summer months when everything begins to bloom – bring a distinctive beauty to Newport.  The chartreuse green leaves, flowering trees and the uninterrupted stretch of harbor (sans fleet) provide no hint of the bustling summer days ahead.

This photo was taken from Beechbound – a luxury condominium enclave created around a fabulous turn-of-the-century 1895 summer “cottage”.  It is one of several condo communities along this scenic stretch of coastline offering active harbor views, docks, launch access and the ability to get involved or get away – all from the same spot.

So come soon, before spring gives way to summer, and see what the locals get to enjoy year round!
