jaunt around ct

got a bunch of hats done while in the car

stopped at fenton ruby state park and wildlife preserve

beginning of the trail, we did register. there were at least 15 markers

very hot and severe walking, lots of roots and mud and rocks to climb over

next was:
wickham park and gardens (aviary and other formal gardens)

we didn't see everything but there are at least 10 formal gardens, all kinds of birds, all kinds of playgrounds for the kids, tennis courts, volleyball courts, softball fields and TONS of walking trails in very pristen atmosphere, places for weddings (they were setting up a tent and we wondered if it's where chelsea clinton will be married LOL

lots of statues

next was:
elizabeth park and gardens

rose gardens, 4 of these arches lead to the center covered home. there are very laid back gardens, all kinds of combinations of flowers. very pleasing to the eyes

snack bar we got a hotdog from and 3 mins later we went back to get an ice cream before leaving and they closed at 439pm

annuals, rock gardens also

dinosaur state park was closed at 430pm also, what gives with this LOL

gillette castle = this was closed by 5pm when we were there

didn't make it to devils hopyard either, next time

strange things along the way

a swing bridge that actually swings to the side to let boats go under the bridge.

if you look at this just right it looks like a small person scrunched up with his hands folded in front o f him behind the tree

i95 in RI, they actually have this divided rather than grass median
