Back Roads

On weekends you can often find us doing daytrips along the many back roads of Connecticut.

New England is famous for it’s stone walls, and tourists can find stone walls almost everywhere  – from the mountains all the way to the seacoast.  Most are hundreds of years old, built with rocks that were left by glaciers, but there’s enough rocks here to build even new ones! These walls were used to set boundaries in colonial times, or to keep animals in the pastures.

This photo was taken inOld Lyme, Connecticut which is along the seashore.
