Chairman Bao is a Shih Tzu. We travel a lot. I drive. He watches. We've logged at least 10,000 miles and he's never once said, Sweetheart, don't you think you should stop and ask someone?

Connecticut is so green!

Deciduous trees. Acres of lush, green grass. Water in the rivers.
Dandelions. We're definitely not in Tucson!
Olde Mistic Village is just across the street from our hotel. It's a
shopping plaza built to resemble a colonial sea-port town, and
extremely well done. Here we are at the watermill and duck pond. Bao
isn't sure about the ducks.
In the afternoon we got to see the real thing. Maureen (one of my
readers) took us to Stonington Borough, built before the American
Revolution and pretty much unchanged. Little, wooden salt-box houses
set along streets built for horse-carts, not cars. It's like
Disneyland without the cartoon characters. People actually live there.
Maureen lives there. Just like Olde Mistic, except it's real.

However, New England winters are brutal and I will take Arizona every time, no matter how charming the villages of N. E..
