Newport on the Levy

Good morning,

One of the places we enjoy near our home is the Newport Aquarium.  I've posted about trips inside there before.  I haven't yet shared these images of the plaza before.  These were taken when we were here with the grand daughters a few weeks ago.
In the same entertainment complex with the Newport Aquarium are many restaurants, shops, and a movie theater.
One of the restaurants we enjoy here is Mitchell's Fish Market.
The granddaughters think this fish out in front is pretty neat, too.  :)

Ah, it's good to be home doing home things again. 

All the best,
Lois

You always surprise us with nice set of pictures. If you don't mind I would like to use the one with the benches in my bench blog, with due credit to you.
