Sorry for the lack of blogs lately.  This blog is going to attempt to get us caught up through today.

Monday Sept 26th we drove to Moose River Campground in St. Johnsbury VT.  We stayed there through Tuesday mostly looking at fall colors. 

Wednesday we drove to Campton State Park in the White mountains of NH.  Wednesday afternoon I went fishing on the Mad River which runs along the campground.  I caught 5 fish; the largest was perhaps 2 inches. I think they were brown trout fry, but it's hard to tell for sure on a fish that young and small.  Wed. evening it rained most of the evening.  Thurdsay morning I went fishing on the Pemigewasset River.  It started raining so hard I couldn't see my fly on the water, so I quit and returned to the trailer where we hooked up and moved on to Iroquois Land Family Camping in North Clarendon, VT. 

We stayed there Thursday through Sunday.  North Clarendon is near Rutland, VT.  We drove around the area (Green Mountains), went up to Killington ski area, and explored Rutland.  We went to a shop which specialized in Limoge china (Patti's China) but the store was closed with a note that they were at an antique fair in another near by village.  We drove to the antique fair and found the lady who owns the Limoge store.  She was amazing and answered all of Patti's questions about the china.  Her name is Debbie Dubay and she has written 6? books about Limoge.  We bought one of her books which hopefully will help Patti figure out even more about her china. 

Sunday afternoon we did laundry and cleaned the trailer. 

Monday we drove to Ledyard,CT and went to Foxwoods Resort and Casino.  We got two nights in the Grand Pequot Towers and had a great time.  (Thanks Brian for the information about this place)

This is the most amazing casino resort we have ever been in.  It has 4 hotels. 6 casinos, 31 restaurants, and many high end shops.  The place is absolutely HUGE.  I'd guess it's more than a half mile from one end to the other.  Everything in this place is quality and beautiful.  We didn't win, but we had a great time!

Wednesday Oct 6th we drove to Clinton CT and got a spot in River Road RV park.  This is about mid way along the CT / Long Island sound coast.  Thursday we went for a walk on the beach ( it's nice) and we have been exploring the area.  We got a tip in a pub that we should go to New Haven and have Pizza on Wooster St.  Friday we went to New Haven and did pizza from a brick oven.  It was very good.  Today (Sat. Oct. 9th) we are leaving here and going to ??
