One Year Wedding Anniversary

Yesterday was my one year wedding anniversary!! WOOHOO! I can't believe how fast time has flown since I got married to the man of my dreams.

This post isn't about my wonderful year being married. I swear it has something to do with living in Rhode Island. I had to preface the topic with the anniversary because if it wasn't an important day I probably would have never found this gem in Providence.

This "gem" I am talking about is Camille's Restaurant in Federal Hill Providence. Seriously the best meal I have had in such a long time! I got the California Hot Tub Martini and the Silver Fox Martini (AMAZING) For dinner I got the seared scallops.
Not only does this presentation look amazing it tastes even more amazing. My husband got a Caesar Salad to start and the Lasagna. He was too full to finish but kept trying to eat just one last bite because it was SO good!

The service was impeccable! Our waiter was so nice and helpful. Around just enough but not too much. Gave his opinion on drinks when asked and was very personable. There was a great family Italian vibe there and I love that. 

We made our reservations on OpenTable and I put in the special occasion box that it was our wedding anniversary and at the end of the meal we were presented with this:

So delicious!! On top of those 2 chocolate sticks is a chocolate butterfly! AMAZING it was a piece of art and tasted SO good!

Needless to say I would give this place 5 stars. Food was great, service was great and well it helps that my company was great too :)

Skydive Newport!!

I have always wanted to go skydiving and I think that this summer I am going to hopefully go! If not this summer definitely before we make our next move. I first noticed that there was skydiving in Newport when I was working the 7th hole (little snack shack) on the golf course. About every 30 mins I would hear a plane's engine slow down wait wait wait AHHHHHH!!! If you listen closely you can hear the people screaming, then they would pull the parachute and glide on down.

I asked someone where they skydive. To my surprise there is a little itty bitty airport called Newport State Airport. I have never ever noticed an airport on the island before, it must just be for private planes (wouldn't that be nice) and the skydivers.

This would be something I would want to do before my time is up here in Rhode Island! I was taking a look at their website: http://www.skydivenewport.com/ and it looks like you are able to see the whole island and water and everything!! I am itching to do this soon.

Here are some pictures of other peoples jumps and WHEN not if I do this I will take theirs down and post my own!!

Can I Go In The Water Yet?!?!?!

Summer is so close I can taste it! I have gotten back to work on my beverage cart at the golf course which means the season has begun! It's only a matter of time before I am wearing shorts and on my way to the beach!

Last summer we found out that at the Navy Base you can rent powerboats and sailboats! You have to take their training course before they let you take a boat out. We went with a friend who already took and passed this course so we were able to have some fun out on the water!

For the powerboat, which is what we took, is $10 and hour (doesn't include fuel), $40 for half day (includes 1 full tank), and $80 for a full day (includes 2 tanks of gas) They aren't the nicest boats around thats for sure and they aren't the type of boats you can wakeboard off the back but for a day on the water you can't beat the price!

I know absolutely nothing about sailing, but the rental place on base has 2 different types of sailboats. One is called Rhodes and that is $9.50 an hour or $46 for a full day. The other one is called Shields, this is $16 and hour and $90 a day. Based on prices I'm gonna take an educated guess and say that Shields is the better choice.

If you are not in the military don't fret! Of course I have looked up places to rent outside of the base. There is a place right in Newport called Adventure Watersports. They have boats, jet skis and kayaks for rent. I am not going to write about all the prices and types of boats but I will tell you they have 3 different types of powerboats, 2 different jet skis and single or double kayaks. I will show you the pictures from their website! I love pictures :) Here is their website so you can go check it out when the temperatures start to get up there again!
