We left the house on Saturday the 15th of June for a trip to Niantic. Our original plan was to stop in Hazleton, PA and spend the night. It did not work out like that. There was a huge car show in the Hazleton/Wilkes-Barre area and there were no hotel rooms to be found. We decided to keep going, by the time we got to the New York border it was only a few more hours to Niantic. No sense in getting a hotel room if we were only 3 hours or so away. It was a good drive.
That left us a full extra day in Connecticut!
Our first stop on Sunday was, of course, the Book Barn!
We went to all FOUR book barns, the main one, then the travel barn, and the two downtown. The last one Lon found most of his books. That one has maritime books and cookbooks. I found a cookbook I had been looking for, Renoir's Table. It is a beautiful book to look at, but I have not made anything out of it yet.
It was not very breezy, Lon was determined to make that kite fly!
