I enjoyed attending the zenAgain Conference in Rhode Island this week, and especially enjoyed sharing my room with Suzanne McNeill (former owner of Design Originals and author of hundreds of books on Zentangle art and publisher of books on many other crafts). We stayed at the Hyatt Regency on Goat Island in Newport Bay - a beautiful site for an event.
We started with a tour of Newport on Sunday morning. I'll let my photos tell most of the story.
After our tour of The Breakers, we hopped off the trolley downtown and enjoyed a tasty Lobster Roll for lunch.
I'll do another blog with more photos from the conference.
|We filled two trolleys to tour Newport and The Breakers|
|The Bay was beautiful as we drove to The Breakers|
|Opulence is the word I would use to describe The Breakers|
|Check out the fireplaces and gold everywhere|
|Another huge fireplace. This one is marble.|
|Everywhere you look, you see designs|
|Check out the designs on this hand-carved marble bathtub.|
|This design would be good for quilting or tangling.|
|More designs for borders.|
|Designs on the ceilings.|
|Another design on the ceiling.|
|And this one is on the floor.|
|I really liked this floral wallpaper.|
