New England Road trip Day 12, Litchfield Hills, Connecticut

Today I went to Litchfield Hills... It is an area in Connecticut that was depicted in my National Geographic book as a scenic drive. Litchfield, the town, was fabulous... It is very historic and figured prominently if the founding of this country. The rest of the drive was nice as well. I loved the covered bridges, waterfalls and great scenery. I am starting to tire of the driving... It is difficult trying to stop or find a place to stop for photo ops at times... I see some time relaxing by the pool or beach in the near future......

I've been getting caught up on your travels Lost track of you while I was on the Amsterdam in Alaska. Great photos as always and a bummer about the liquid sunshine but the pics and views were great even with the fog. I'm off tomorrow to Venice to the Nieuw Amsterdam for the maiden voyage on 7/4 It should be a lot warmer than last summer on the Voyage of the Vikings.
Continue to travel safe

Hi Jeff,

Enjoying your beautiful photos and wonderful journal of the road trip. However, I am sure it is a lot of work and you deserve some beach time. Carolyn and I have just returned from a three week cruise on the Prinsendam, mostly around Norway. We visited the northenmost city in Europe to complement our visit with you to the southernmost city in the world. Incidently, a libriarian on the Prinsendam was the same as with us on the Amsterdam.

Regards,

Bill Gooden
