Connecticut shore

Arriving at our destination in Connecticut the first thing I like to do is head for the beach!
Found this cute little stepping stone in a neighbor's yard
Hubby grateful to be standing up rather than the 15 hours of sitting!
Looking out over Long Island Sound and the Atlantic beyond

Really a quaint area, different than the Florida and Carolina beaches that I am use to seeing

I wanted so bad to take this huge driftwood home with me. It could have gone on the roof rack!
Lots of holes, seaweed, etc. on the beaches from Hurricane Irene.  They were cleaning the beaches up while we were there

A few shells and small driftwood as I always have to get some from every beach

I did find this really cool piece of driftwood though so it made it home with me!

The beach was just down the street, and then you had the marsh down the opposite side of the street with all the big boats.
We had really good weather the few days we were there; some of the hottest days yet I had packed for a little cooler temps!  Never thought that a few weeks later that all through that area they would be dealing with a big  storm that left a ton of snow!  These days you never know!

Madelief, last week they had snow up in the mountains of North Georgia, but so far nothing here yet! Although they say we are suppose to get snow early this year.
