This visit was over my birthday weekend in October and the leaves had juuuust fallen off the trees so the landscape was barren-esque, bit not so barren as to have no color at all.

I received this question and can’t think of what this place could be… any ideas?
Hi. I visited Connecticut in 2012 and happened on a small roadside shop on the route to Litchfield from Farmington. I cannot for my soul recall the name of the place, but it had the best cider wine I ever had! It was not a huge farm or orchard, just a small family run store. Any ideas what it is? I don’t know the route name either, but it even may have been further out as I went on up into Cornwall bridge too. Thanks for any help!! Anna Walker
I could say that I didn’t take too many pictures in Litchfield because I wanted you to experience it in person, for yourself, but the fact is I just wanted to walk around and window shop. Like Stonington and Essex, Litchfield is the kind of town to just park your car and take a walk around. I love all three of these towns so much for that reason, and because each is a great jumping off point for a day trip. (more…)
Mother Nature, you are a real nut job. As nutty as the person who designed the Asylum Ave-Capitol Ave-91 interchange stretch on 84 East in Hartford. You are approaching Donald Trump levels of crazy. You’re that much of a jerk right now. After trying to wash away much of the tri-state last week, you pelted us with snow as soon as we started to slowly recover. (more…)
The best place to wait out a major hurricane, freak snow storm, or other natural catastrophe is–by far–a city. Mike and I remained blithely unaware of the doom inflicted on Greater Hartford for a full 24 hours after 2011’s “Snocktober” storm because we were in Hartford. (more…)
