We spent the week visiting our friends Carol and John in Monroe Connecticut. When we were planning the visit we discovered that there are very few campgrounds in Connecticut and none of them are near Monroe. Our friends driveway is very steep with some sharp bends so parking the trailer there was out of the question. Luckily, Gail (Carol’s sister) lives nearby and has a nice level driveway perfect for parking a trailer. Ed, Zaph and I decided to move into John and Carol’s house for the week. It was kinda of weird having all that space, but Zaph loved it and ran around the house squeaking some of his favourite toys.
Over the course of the week, we went for some great pizza in New Haven, visited a dog park in Westport, took Zaph for a long walk alone a river, went from a drive to look at the Dogwood trees in bloom and went into New York City. Ed was having “good camera store” withdrawal so he and John headed to their favourite camera stores, while Carol and I headed to the Metropolitan Museum. The four of us met up to attend a matinee performance of ‘The Producers”. If you haven’t had a chance to see this play, it really is hilarious. Before heading back to Connecticut, we went to an Asian restaurant that specialized in Sushi and Vegetarian cuisine (John and Carol are vegetarians). It was good to visit New York City one more time.
