The ghost tour was fun, but compared to the tour I took in Albuquerque over labor day weekend, the Providence one left a lot to be desired. I did capture some orbs (I'll explain in a minute), but the New Mexico tour was smaller, the streets were more deserted, the alleyways were more narrow, and the atmosphere was much darker and creepier. I might as well have seen dead bodies slumped over in the corners of the buildings, rotting away as fog rolled over.
Also during my weekend my friends and I took a tour of the "summer cottages" (i.e. mansions) of the Vanderbilt's and the Astors.
The Vanderbilt's is by far the most impressive of Newport. They only lived at this 282729020 room mansion for two months of the year and they shipped in the ornate woodwork and decor from France to resemble the Italian Renaissance. Their mansion is called "The Breakers" and they call it this, because you can hear the breakers of the Atlantic ocean, crashing into the rocky New England shore.
The Astors had an interesting tour too, because everyone there was dressed in character and behaving as if the year were 1891. So they warned us not to ask John Jacob about the Titanic if we ran into him, because he didn't go down with the ship until 1912 and we might freak him out a bit to let him know of this tragedy in advance! The tour guide also noted that my friend Holly and I were quite progressive with our Turkish Trousers!
On that note, I suppose I should get back to the grind and work my Turkish trousers off. Hope everyone else had a lovely weekend.
PS- For those of you who have asked, YES, I DID mean to spell "rime" that way.....ever heard of Samuel Taylor Coleridge? Ever heard of "old English"?
