I had managed to get a layover here due to some poor weather at my destination airport. Which I was totally cool with, as I saw the lighthouse on my approach into Newport and wanted to check it out. Its a easy drive right up to the lighthouse. Theres even a place to get down to the water with an interesting black rock beach! For only having 4 hours to spend here I was not disappointed.
The cool black rock beach. The sound from the water receding off the rocks is fantastic. Like a river on steroids!
Some waves bigger than others, they can sneak up on you and get you!
The lighthouse from the black beach. Truly a beautiful place!
