I just finished a series of high-stress depositions, and the
discovery deadline is over! So Tom and I cashed in some Delta
SkyMiles and fled for New England. Leaving Knoxville at 11:25 a.m.,
we flew through Detroit and arrived at Boston Logan Airport at 5:30
Knoxville, Tennessee to Newport, Rhode Island
Enterprise Rent-A-Car was busy but efficient. It didn't take us
long to pick up a little gray Ford Fiesta. Soon we were on our way
to Newport, Rhode Island, about 45 minutes to the south.
Unfortunately, we did a poor job of checking for damage before we
left. We were halfway to Newport before I noticed the
passenger-side rear-view mirror had a large crack running through
it. Nuts! I hope we don't end up having to pay for that sucker.
We spent our first vacation night at a Motel 6, nicely situated
across the street from Newport Adults Only Video. But for $58 right
in Newport, I'm not complaining. It wasn't bad for a 6.
Coddington Brewing Company was just up the road. Tom and I shared a
beer sampler, because we couldn't decide between the Golden Ale,
Blueberry Ale, IPA, Pumpkin Ale, Scottish Heavy, and Oatmeal Stout.
FYI: The Golden Ale is the best! Tom got a TexMex burger, and I
went for the clam chowder, something I'd never order at home in
either landlocked Tennessee or Oklahoma. Yum! More chowder,
located, Newport, Rhode Island
