... facilities in much need of refurbishment. We had a water-side seat at the Marina Restaurant, a bar/diner by the Connecticut River. It was fascinating to watch Americans on a Saturday night out, drinking cocktails while watching college football and Major League baseball on two tvs at the same time. We ate well and didn't allow the noise levels (worse than a school canteen) to disrupt our meal.
An early start tomorrow as we move to Boston, on Columbus Day too!
... we saw, what we believe was, an Amish family picking up a few supplies which they could not provide for themselves on their farm. They certainly do live a simple but very healthy lifestyle.

Off to Ramunto's Pizza and Pub for an early dinner, since we did not stop for lunch.
