A visit to Blithewold (lots of pics)

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
Yesterday was an absolutely gorgeous day , and my husband and I decided to visit Blithewold Mansion. www.blithewold.org It is less than 15 minutes from here, but we had never been. Cameras were not allowed inside, but I took some of the mansion from outside, as well as many in the gardens.

The front, along with a giant sequoia on the left. They boast that the grounds contain the tallest sequoias east of the Rockies.



The side



the rear - they were setting up for a wedding on the lawn



View from the terrace looking out onto Narragansett Bay

That's one of the Giant Sequoias. I stood at the base and took the picture looking up.

Karen....
Some of your pictures should be shown in a gallery.
You use your camera to show us things that we would never see with our naked eyes.
Bravo!
