Throwback Adventure – April 2015 – Cliff Walk

I will have sections of my blog that I will title “Throwback Adventure”, and will plan on posting them every Thursday.  These are journeys we have taken before I started the blog, but are well worth sharing.

In April 2015 Shadow, Buster, and I journeyed to Cliff Walk in Newport, Rhode Island.  Sadly Buster has passed away since, but he definitely enjoyed his share of adventures.  He was an amazing boy, and will always be missed.  Cliff walk is a 3.5 mile trail that borders the shoreline.  It is a National Recreation Trail in a National Historic District.  Cliff Walk runs behind some of the mansions in the area, and includes:  tunnels, paved paths, rocky shoreline, and beach areas.

We decided to choose one of the first spring weather days to journey to Cliff Walk.  It was still a “winter-dark” kind of day, yet spring was in the air.  We enjoyed walking on this picturesque trail, on the paved trail, through the tunnels, and onto the shore.  It was neat to see such unique structures, and architecture on our walk, combining with the gorgeous rocky shoreline.  We even found a nice, quiet area to picnic on the rocks.  I am sure the walk is even more beautiful when the green color, and flowers are out in the spring in summer.  However, it was nice to avoid the tourists, crowds, and to relax enjoy this gorgeous location.  I think I will plan a visit again in the future (Rating:  4).
