365 project day 9/25

Want to give a shout out to the New England Pasta Co. Cafe - a new lunch/catering establishment on Rt. 44, Avon, CT.  Kim, the owner, was kind enough to let me hang some of my original photographs in her new Cafe!  The curry chicken salad is to die for.....

Early Fall in Avon. People are too busy today shopping, watching the Patriots, going to soccer matches and a million other things we all do with our weekend time. This bench invites us to slow down and enjoy the scenery every once in a while.

We took a drive to NYC to see a college today and spent the afternoon walking around Battery Park - enjoying the sights and people watching. I always love to visit the city, but am glad when I'm home.
