Wandering about Connecticut

We've had two really good days with some amazing Italian treats along the way. Yesterday we got to Waterbury, let John do some recovering while Jet and I took advantage of the hotel pool and the summer heat here, and then wandered about New Haven. Today we took it slow and started a little late, but then did the submarine museum at the New London Navel Base in Groton, CT and spent the rest of the afternoon at the Hammonasset Beach state park.

Out in the Trees

We had an easy going day today, only made it as far as one of John's friends' house in Patterson, New York.

The sfogliatella was crisp even after a night in the refrigerator. The cream had hardened, but was still tasty and not that sweet. Jet's cannoli's cream hadn't faired quite so well, so he wasn't able to actually eat the whole thing and apologized about asking for it when it wasn't that good. I said that that was just part of trying new things.

We went a ways over the interstate and then through towns and villages and got to their house just on the edge of the country, and found the house the first time.
