Trusting you all enjoyed a heartwarming Christmas, rich with family and friends.
This now quiet period between Santa’s arrival and the fireworks of New Year’s Eve I’ve found to be the perfect time to reflect back on the year in pictures. While many of you only know me through this website and journal posts, Private Newport is also a part of the world of Instagram (@PrivateNewport). This mobile phone app is, to me, the equivalent of eating a chocolate sundae every day…simply a collection of inspiring, beautiful, compelling images, with relevant captions, that are posted each day by thousands of people . There are no political harangues, shout downs, one-ups or unpleasant interruptions (at least within my circle of friends).
One can quickly develop a following of like-minded virtual friends who prove a great delight; the “likes” that each image receives is really a version of “the people’s choice.” And so, the following pictures represent the top favorites of Private Newport’s 2018 postings on Instagram.
Enjoy! And may your New Year be filled with endless possibilities, memorable experiences and an abiding sense of peace.
