Finally Day 2

What can I say?! I've totally abandoned my writing and had turned to baking but during few moments of clarity, I realize that it would be totally amazing to document my travels and write down all the awesome and not so awesome places I have visited.
Speaking of not to awesome, the very first thing on our agenda in Newport was a scenic train ride. I've always wanted to go on one and on one we went... Boooring!!!

Having left a day later then planned, we quickly crossed the slums of Queens and ended up in suburbs of CT. The familiar hour and a half drive brought on nothing but the constant fumbling with the radio buttons and obsession over my newly acquired Iphone. That quickly stopped as we entered the town of Greenwich, CT. Neither OK or I are fans of suburban life, white picket fences and/or soccer moms but WOW! these mansio.... errrr.. excuse me homes, are definitely worth checking out and are certainly something to be desired.
Our first stop was the Dunnellen Hall - Built …
