Stonington Borough

IMG_4722_3_4_5_6

Continuing our exploration of the Connecticut shoreline along the Long Island Sound, Lyn and I spent a lovely day recently exploring the wonderful little hamlet of Stonington Borough, one of the small towns that make up the greater Stonington area. If looking for it on the map, it is just where Connecticut and Rhode Island connect along the shoreline.

Oh! And I can personally recommend the fish and chips served at any of the road side diners! 🙂

As always, special thanks to my dearest spouse Lyn, who does all the heavy lifting in selecting the photos. And thank you sincerely for dropping by the Book of Bokeh. I would also like to invite you to visit my Book of Pain  poetry blog.

    • Thank you! It is a beautiful spot to visit, that is for sure. On the other hand, I wish I lived in the Rockies…so that just goes to show that the grass always is, apparently, greener elsewhere. 🙂

      • I lived in Colorado Springs for a while right under Pikes Peak. It was beautiful. All the conveniences of a city, both old part and new, and 10 minutes we were in the mountains. I loved it! And miss it, but at that time there were no jobs for us.

        • I worked out of Denver for several years as a consultant but never lived there. At one point I was looking for a job there, but it was the end of the dot com bust so jobs were tight. But like you I loved the place and would love again to live there.

          Did you know that Denver is the only city to ever have been awarded the Olympic games, and then, when they thought it over, cancelled. The city and state were worried that the event would create urban sprawl, especially along the corridor up to the mountains! Which is exactly what happened anyway! 🙂
