Day One Trinity College, Hartford CT

What a nice first day. We used our Magellan GPS to take back roads from home in Dutchess Co. Spring is zoomin around here and we passed lambs and calves in bright green fields. This is an old part of the country and we enjoyed seeing old houses and old trees, and even old closed factories. Time marches on.

Trinity College is a pretty campus high on a hill. On a Friday afternoon during exam week we weren't too surprised not to see many students at the reading, but there was a good turnout of adults, many of them Trinity faculty. John read from the chapters "Homecoming" and "Correspondence" where the speaker is the Humorist. That's Mark Twain, whose home is an asset to Hartford. We have made the pilgrimage.

The pictures I took of the reading were not worth showing. Instead, meet our hosts Michael Preston and Barbara Karger
  We left them after morning coffee and after a short time on the road home we had our first Road Food
Bristol, CT. Good seafood platter, great hostess, and all the chat was of fashions at the Wedding.
What wedding?  These folks got up early to watch.
