Is anyone going to be around? Laurie and I are traveling East to Mohegan Sun Friday, hanging out and hiking near by Saturday, and then driving back to NY Sunday.

We did a very nice hike at Bluff Point State Park, near New London. Nice park, great views of the Sound from the bluff, lots of birds. We saw Osprey, Egret, several types of ducks, some warblers. Total distance around 3.5 miles.

Now for the beer.

The Race Book Brewpub sucks! Nuff said! :(

On the other hand, if you like IPAs, GO TO WILLIMANTIC BREWERY! Their IPA and Double IPAs are great! We took home a growler. They have 40 taps of other people's beer as well! A huge selection of New England (and a few beyond) beer. We also had very good, reasonably priced bar food.

They were celebrating their 18th anniversary, and giving away free flowers for their Earth Day / Birthday. :D The building is a converted Post Office, it's worth a look around.

Very nice trip to CT, including a visit with Chip!
