Today we went to Newport in Rhode Island. It was really hot all day so our only plan was to find and go to the beach. Which we did. We came to Newport around 10 with the yellow school busses and then I had to find my friends since none of them are on my bus... We took a map over Newport and tried to locate our position and the beach, not easy. A man came to help us and pointed out the direction for us, he said it was a ten minute walk. Eh, not for us. It took us 40 minutes, without the stop at Ben and Jerry's. I had a "Addicted to chocolate shake" and it was so good!! Loved it!

The church below is actually the one that John F. Kennedy got married in 60 years ago. Pretty cool.

Newport is very famous for it's big houses and mansions. We never saw the biggest ones but we did see some very big houses! It felt like I was at the French Riviera. I always forget that the Boston/New York area is on the same latitude as Southern Europe so I'm always surprised and a little confused when I see trees our bushes that I know from France.

Once we reached the beach we went down to the water and the others (Amanda, Madeleine and Louise) swam for a while. I still have my hand wrapped from yesterday so I just stood in the water. The sand was very hot so you couldn't stand in it! Horrible!

It was very hot today so we had to sit down in the shadow before we went back to the busses again.

I had a rally great day with my friends.

These pictures pretty much sums up this evening. Don't worry, I'm fine! My hand is much better now!
