06.20.16 Connecticut, we have arrived!

connecticut mapMonday, June 20, 2016 – As southern New York begins to fade in our rear view mirror we enter the beautiful state of Connecticut.  Massive rocks replace green grass in the medians and that is a sight I love to see.  Even the Rest Area looks different.

We are staying at a wonderful resort called Seaport RV Resort.  It is part of the Sun Communities Resorts.   Their rates are higher than we care to pay but since it’s part of our Coast to Coast system we used our trip points to pay for it.SPOaboutUs

After staying last week in a 30 amp park in New York we are quite happy to have a full 50 amp here! We spent 7 days in Montaindale, NY in Hilltop RV Campground which was basically a majorly large field with trees and a few RVs.  Very very quiet and cool the first few days when we were able to live with no air conditioning and the windows open!  Then the temps crept higher so we experienced the difficulties an RV the size of ours with two air conditioners, etc. has living on 30 amp.

The weather here in Connecticut is beautiful, low 70s and a nice breeze! Back home it’s in the 90s to 100s so we’re quite happy to be here!

While we’re here we’ll go to Mystic, Connecticut where there is a seaport, a shopping village and the USS Nautilus submarine is open for tours.  We’ll do that Monday.

Connecticut – Seaport RV Resort

On Wednesday we’re going to Rhode Island to stroll along a walkway by the ocean and to take a scenic drive through the area of Newport, Rhode Island.

My dearly loved Kindle got crushed when it slipped off the bed and got in the way of us closing our slide a couple of weeks ago.  No warranty so I had to order a new one.  I’ve been reading my phone kindle which is very weird! We’ll pick up the new Kindle from the Mystic, CT post office Wednesday on our way to Rhode Island.

I didn’t finish writing this until after we spent the day (which is Monday) in Mystic!  Great day, lots of walking and seeing, lobster rolls, and a trip to down inside a real submarine!!!

Ya’ll come back now, ya’ hear!
