June Gloom in Newport

A few miles inland from Newport you might think it was overcast along the coast, but the "marine layer" was with us here today.
A lot of people call it the "June Gloom", with a negative tone in their voice,
but ask most locals and they'll tell you - we like it.

The marine layer gives us the perfect combination of temperature and humidity, and it is so serene.
There were lots of gondolas out on the water and I was able to greet and catch up a bit with some of my brothers in stripes.

Mike Ruffino emerges from beneath the Newport Blvd. bridge.

Steve Elkins waves and smiles with happy passengers.

Konner, at "the elbow" - that spot where so many of our
bottle messages and marriage proposals take place.
