Spring in Newport
May 2010
Between stops on a six city business trip, I had one day off in Newport. I decided to go walk the Cliff Walk since it was one thing I haven't done in Newport before. at the end of it, I happenned upon a soapbox derby. It's nice to see that people still do that. It's such classic americana.

Is there anything as American as a soapbox derby?
This bird is obviously used to the foot traffic on the Cliff Walk
