Hills, Islands and a County Fair

A calm, peaceful and not so hectic weekend it was at the Litchfield Hills, Thimble Islands and the Guilford Fair.

The Litchfield Hills is located in the NorthWestern part of the state of Connecticut and is the perfect spot for a lazy day. Even better, is to relax at a Vineyard amidst the hills, like we did. The Thimble Islands Cruise that followed was worth every minute. The Thimble Islands is a cluster of islands in Long Island Sound, in and around the harbor of Stony Creek in the southeast corner of Branford, Connecticut . The weekend did not end at the Thimble Islands. Next on the agenda was the Guilford Fair – 150th Anniversary! We witnessed the The Flying Wallendas circus. It sure was a sight to watch. I thouroughly enjoyed the circus act(was watching a circus after years). The High Wire Sky Walk performed by Tino Wallenda was nothing less than spectacular.

And alas, the weekend came to a close!
