Gone Fishing!

Well, not really! but I am on vacation, actually a stay-vacation, a bit of time to recoup and hopefully just relax. While away my blogging is on hiatus unless I get totally bored; doubtful as I have all kinds of books to read and little projects to accomplish. As I'm certain I will have some free time, I'd love to hear from you if there's something or somewhere you've recently visited in Connecticut or close proximity (including good restaurants) that I shouldn't miss. Though I can check for and The Chronicle for upcoming events, there's nothing like a personal recommendation. 

Like Arnold Schwarzenegger"s famous line in The Terminator...I'll be back! and look forward to chatting with all of you. In the meantime, Happy Reading!

Have a great vacation! Get lots and lots of reading done. I'll look forward to your recommendations!

If you don't mind driving a couple of hours each way, I can definitely recommend a daytrip to include lunch at one of the wonderful restaurants at the Culinary Institute of America...and then, if you have the time and/or inclination, a quick visit to the FDR home/library or the Vanderbilt estate. If you want to stick closer to home, my husband and I also love spending the day in the Stonington/Mystic area, with lunch at S&P Oyster Company...they have the best views in town...

Thanks for posting! I do appreciate it. I am reading and enjoying that time so much. I'm also cooking a bit, made chicken chili, chicken garlic stir fry, pizza, and stuffed peppers; oh my waist line! Love the Stonington area even this time of year. Have never been to S&P Oyster Company. I'll put that on my list though oysters themselves are not on my menu (highly allergic, though I love them). Am thinking about heading to Crazy Burger in Narrangansett. Great veggie burgers, a favorite of Megan & I.
