Happy Inauguration Day

Happy Inauguration Day!
Here are some pictures from Sturbridge Village-what a wonderful place...you really do feel like you have stepped back in time...especially on such a cold day when I think we were the only visitors! Question: How many sweaters can you get under a raincoat?
This is from the back path-it was so cold that when we came around to the Town Common, I was so glad to get into a building I forgot to take a picture of the Common.

Whatever are they eating? Lichen?


Isn't this window magnificent...its in the Wadsworth Atheneum, Hartford...there are gems like this all over the building. Hartford is definitely worth a trip to if you are in New York or Boston-across from this museum is an old church with an even older pre-Revolutionary War graveyard.
The snow was light on the ground so we walked through-amazing gravestones including one that said that here lay the first white child (non-native American) born in Connecticut!

So how many sweaters can you get under a raincoat? I guess that depends how big the raincoat is in relation to the person wearing it.

Sounds like you're having a great trip - besides the weather. Can't wait to hear about it when you get back!

What a wonderful place to go visit!
Is this where Norman Rockwell lived, and where the Red Lion is?
