Last Friday afternoon, Chris and I finally got the chance to celebrate nine years of wedded bliss! It was the best “date night” we’ve had in a long time, thanks to Bird’s Eye View Helicopters. We spent the afternoon touring Newport via helicopter, followed by a romantic dinner at 22 Bowen’s Wine Bar and Grill, on Newport’s waterfront.
Seriously? A ride in a helicopter? Yup. I felt like I was on a one-one-one date on The Bachelor and the only thing missing was Chris Harrison and the rose ceremony! I had often caught a glimpse of this red helicopter flying overhead while lounging on Gooseberry Beach and thought, “Damn, I need a ride on that thing ~ Looks fun!”
I love Newport, RI. It’s one of my favorite New England getaways and it’s so close. The boat rides, the restaurants, the mansions, the beaches, the shopping, the people watching, the views! So when I got the chance to see Newport by helicopter, I was super duper excited. And we couldn’t do it alone, we had to bring the fun to all of you!
We got to view 18 miles of scenic Newport with Jeff, our very own private tour guide and pilot. Chris took the co-pilot seat and I sat in the back. HOLY AMAZINGNESS. A helicopter! I was flying in a helicopter!
We took note of all of our favorite places – Ocean Drive, The Cliff Walk, Gooseberry Beach, The Newport Bridge, Downtown Newport, Brenton Point, and even Castle Hill. We saw it all from the sky and it was totally awesome. Not scary at all – flying in a helicopter was so fun and exciting! Jeff was an awesome pilot and I never thought our ride would be sooooo smooth, especially considering how windy it was outside!!! I want to do it again! What an adventure! Hair flying, open windows, headsets ~ I rode in a helicopter!!!!!
