From the Archives - White Gate Farm

East Lyme, CT  2020

It's the time of the year when we all look back and remember all the things that have happened in 2020.  For me, I decided to go back  and try to find those photos I might have missed or were not posted in this blog.  White Gate Farm provides fresh, organic produce.

First Snow 2020

Niantic, CT  2020

We had our first significant snow storm this past week.  It was fortunate  that this area only got about 8" of accumulation.  Other areas in Connecticut and New England got well over 30".  Snow is only pretty immediately after it falls, before the plows come and before it has gone through a couple of freeze/thaw cycles.  I'd be happy if this were the last snow for this winter, but I doubt it will be.

I'm not sure what the significance of this tortoise sculpture is for the Village of Niantic.

Water Wheel

Mystic, CT   2020

It looks pretty impressive, but this water wheel is probably just for show.

Jealous Monk

Mystic, CT  2020

This place opened up a few years ago at Olde Mistick Village and seems to be doing a very lively business. They feature good pub food, along with one of the largest varieties of craft brews on tap that I've ever seen.

Ship Carvings - Men of Many Colors

Mystic, CT  2020

I have a few more "portraits" of ship carvings that I'll save for a later date.  The craftsmanship that went into all these carvings was outstanding.  They are all so life-like and expressive.  Anyone who visits Mystic Seaport should take the time to see these carvings in person.
