Technically it's not red tide....people around here call it that but it's really just red colored seaweed.

Do you mean First Beach....IT notoriously gets it from mid-July on...hasn't seemed too bad this year though, but I'm only going by looking at the water from the road and what I hear.

That red seaweed does not usually make it's way to second beach, and there hasn't been much seaweed (regular) at Second Beach this year.

Last weekend nice.

all the beaches in Newport have red seaweed. some worse than others. you'll have to find out which ones are good by exploring. safest bet: stick with 1 2 & 3.
