Camels in Newport, RI?

We spent a few days in Rhode Island for a conference that DH was attending. One morning while he was in session, a new friend from our cruise to Greece who lives in the area picked me up at the hotel and took me to Newport and the surrounding area. We had a wonderful time catching up and sightseeing.

While driving past the mansions in Newport, something in the distance in one of the yards caught my eye. "Was that a camel in their yard?" I asked my friend. We made a quick turnaround so we could go back and look again, and sure enough, there was a Daddy Camel, a Mommy Camel, and a Baby Camel. But instead of being real camels like the one we saw outside Ephesus, these were only topiaries.
