After retuning from our flight back from NYC with Jean in August, I had enough time to unpack, go to the CNE (Canadian National Exhibition) in Toronto with my youngest son and his wife, pack up again and then drive out east to Connecticut with my oldest son and his family.
This is not our usual day trips that I’ve been posting. This one is literally one day trip, meaning it takes one day to drive there so we stayed at the Yankee Pedlar Inn while in Connecticut and enjoyed taking a step back in time. This century old hotel is a filled with history.
This old switchboard reminds me of when I used to be a switchboard operator for a chartered account company in Toronto. Hello? Are you there?
The original wagon used to pick up guests from the train station.
A fabulous mosaic!
Strolling around and browsing through shops. My grandchildren were fascinated at the pottery shop and got to watch pottery being made.
I brought my yellow neon skinnies to wear with different tops. These were my favoutite pants this summer, worn here with a black tank top …
and here with a white tank top …
Jean and I bought honey comb necklaces in NYC.
I taught two dances at the Piper’s Gathering, where my son spent the weekend playing the small Scottish bagpipes.
