A little trip to New England

We covered a lot of territory in our time visiting family. While we were in NYC, we drove up to Connecticut to visit Victor's best friend Zach who is finishing something for submarine stuff with the Navy. They were living in the cute coastal town of Groton, and while we were there we went over to Newport, Rhode Island as well.
The only pictures I took in Rhode Island was of the Breakers, the huge summer mansion of the Vanderbilt family. It was lovely, and Victor missed out. (He opted not to tour it...not worth the $$ for him ha) 
^^I couldn't tell what kind of flowers these were that were in bloom all over CT and RI. When I got up close, I realized they were huge azalea bushes. Like some were as big as trees. So pretty^^
So, yeah, that's that.
But yeah, honestly, I was glad to get back to NYC. Connecticut was a tad boring. Not much to offer, and unfortunately, Stars Hollow is a fake town, otherwise I totally would have gone there! ;)

But if you ever happen to find yourself near Rhode Island, Newport is a charming place. You don't need more than a day though! The Breakers is worth the money, don't listen to Victor ha.
