Stonington



On the way to Rhode Island two weeks ago, I stopped in Stonington -- the last town in southeastern Connecticut. The leaves were starting to change colors and the houses on the main street looked great.  Current fall foliage photos from the other corner of Connecticut will begin tomorrow.

Stonington has the look of a comfortable New England town. Very nice!

Such beauty. Are you sure you deserve it, you ol' geezer? Sheesh!

Hopefully you will not have an early, wet snowfall before the leaves drop, like last year.

Oh wow, that is a road the just begs to be explored. I am looking forward to more fall colors. We won't see any here until January or February.

Watching the first photo I thought, this is South Tyrol ;-)

The house on the second photo is really very very nice!

All 3 shots suit my mental image of Connecticut! I just realized that I have never been there. ;-(

Beautiful houses.

SRQ said...

Aaah...absolutely wonderful autumnal photos. That stone wall really makes the top pic. That's it! I have to make it up to CT for a fall color tour one year.

That first picture is postcard-lovely.

Sadly, all I know of Stonington is its very nice rest stop on the highway.
