History Repeats

Walking to a park after dinner to watch the sunset over Narraganset Bay, I pass the Newport Shipyards. High above the fence, the masts from modern sailing yachts reach well over a hundred feet into the sky. The cost of such large private ships must run into the tens of millions. Fabulous toys for today’s ultra-rich. Newport, R.I., one of the oldest seaside resort towns in the USA. Here you can tour the preserved “cottages” of early robber barons. Opulent mansions of a bygone era chock-full of priceless art and antiques. But there are more modern mansions here too.
