Live in the moment, it might slow life down a bit. My view from Eastern Connecticut.

My daughter and I drove to Wethersfield Cove, a boat launch area in Wethersfield, Connecticut, for the specific purpose of watching an August sunset. My daughter skipped rocks while I sat near the water's edge with my dog and watched a duck peacefully drifting around in the water. I snapped off at least a dozen pictures as the sky changed from pale pastel colors to vibrant and intense shades of yellow, purple and orange. I wish I could take credit for this photo, but it was the one and only shot my daughter took with my camera. She came over and asked if she could take a picture, snapped off this one, handed the camera back to me and went off to skip more rocks. Her picture turned out the be better than any of the ones I had taken. So much for all those photography classes I took.
Hi, and welcome to my blog! In my working life I'm a cook, and in my personal life I'm married and have two daughters, plus a Chihuahua named Minnie. I am also a culinary school graduate with a degree in pastry arts. When I have a day off the first thing I think about is getting my camera and hitting the road. I've always loved road trips and I've been carrying a camera since I got a 110 Instamatic for my birthday when I was a kid. So, we get in the car and travel all over seeking out new back roads and new places to visit. At least twice a year we head up to the Northeast Kingdom in Vermont and take in some of the best scenery New England has to offer, and we get to New Hampshire, too. We also do some shorter trips to Rhode Island, Massachusetts, and sometimes even New York state (although it's not in New England) and once in a blue moon, we get to Maine. When I'm not on the road I'm right here at home reading, writing, watching some classic television like Andy Griffith, or Minnie and I are out strolling in the cemeteries enjoying the art and remembering the people.
