Summer has arrived

Memorial Day weekend usually brings big changes to our quiet little corner. Suddenly people are everywhere - on souped-up noisy motorcycles, in canoes and kayaks on the river, creating long lines at restaurants. There were cars piled up 8 deep on both sides waiting to get across the covered bridge, which only has one lane. They didn't seem to know the local etiquette either - 2 cars go one way, then 2 go the other. Impatient people (from New York, we always assume!) were going 5 or 6 at a time in one direction. But there's a reason they come here - it's beautiful, and if you like outdoor sports, the northwest corner of Connecticut is a great place to be! (and I don't even work for the tourist bureau!) Posted by Picasa
