For our final three weeks in New England, Andrew and I owe a huge expression of graditude and thanks to my family. Everyone has been extremely welcoming, accomodating and delightful for our extended stay.
With all central Connecticut campgrounds closed for the season, we parked Rosie in my aunt and uncle’s side yard. This gave us easy access for visiting with everyone on a daily basis. From many family dinners and game nights to movie outings and holiday events, Andrew and I had the opportunity to reconnect with so many people. Oh and, Ame scored with a huge fenced backyard to play to ball.
While in the area we managed to do a little sightseeing with aunts, uncles, and cousins. We went hiking around Crescent Lake with my cousin, Carina and her oldest daughter. Even though fall foliage ended and the trees were bare, this hillside trail had some great views. My aunt Jean and I visited the Hillstead Museum, designed by one of the first women architects, Theodate Pope Riddle, and made a trip to Washington Depot area, which is the definition of quaint and charming towns. One chilly Sunday afternoon was spent wandering the New England Air Museum, home of a restored B-29 Superfortress, a Fokkerand and a Goodyear Blimp Control Car.
Every moment spent with family over the past four months was amazing and memorible. Thank you everyone for such a wonderful time.
