Saluting 2021 in Pictures

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

From New York to Atlanta…from the Cotswolds to Dallas…from London to Palm Beach…and, of course, Newport. The world of Instagram helps make up for all those trips we had to cancel and travel we’ve lived without. And so, here are the top 21 images of 2021 that were your favorites on both my Private Newport blog and Instagram posts, proving yet again that “a picture is worth a thousand words.” I for one take great solace in the 25,000+ images that I’ve taken and those that my social media friends share…they enliven my imagination, inspire my daydreams, and help me put my cares aside for a brief moment. Enjoy!

From Newport to you with very warm wishes as we usher in a New Year…may 2022 afford us a positive outlook, endless possibilities, and most importantly, good health.
