We stopped here on a rainy December day. Again, we found that the locale was closed and the windmill not working! It's a great example and has a nice explanation of how a windmill works.

Very tricky to find, and a bit underwhelming once there. Not that the windmill isn't lovely, it's just ...a windmill. Lovely pathways and the three bunnies we spotted made up for the slightly lacklustre detour.

We stopped to see this on our way to the Newport Mansions. It was pretty cool. It wasn't open that day but that was ok. There were signs to read and everything was nice and neat. There was a new gazebo to the left of...More
