We have had the last snow (we hope!), the sun is out and flowers are blooming. Newport is waking up to the beginning of a busy summer season. The video below shows a dormant Newport Harbor, sleeping still from the winter season. This video was taken right in front of the Northrop and Johnson Yacht Charters office in Newport on Coddington Wharf. This is winter in Newport on the Harbor. We will take a video again when the yachts start to arrive and fill the docks, and then again at the height of the summer season, when the harbor is full of yachts and a beehive of activity. But for now, we sit and wait a few more weeks, until the first sailing yachts start to blow in from the Caribbean, followed in stately progression by the motor yachts. The harbor will come alive and downtown Newport will overflow with visiting yachtsmen welcomed back for another summer season of yachting.
