On the Housatonic River

Wednesday, May 27, 2009

Went camping this past Sunday at Housatonic Meadows State Park in Sharon, CT. According to our fellow campers, we just happened to miss a massive rain/hail/cats/dogs storm that deluged and swamped the campsite for a half-hour -- we had pitched our tent and gone up to the next town to check out a kayaking outfitter store. Luckily our tent was fine -- just a bit damp inside. On Monday, we drove up to West Cornwall to kayak a little on the river. We were there before 7 a.m., but the trout fishers had beaten us to it, as you can see.

New Restaurant in Ridgefield: Ritz Asia

Tuesday, May 19, 2009

Decided to pop into the brand-new Ritz Asia in Ridgefield, CT (on Rte. 7) on our way back from visiting family and checking out the flea market in Rhinebeck, NY, on Sunday. Typical Asian fusion fare - selection of sauces for sauteed veggies/meat/tofu, pad thai, sushi, etc. -- nothing too amazing. But the huge statue of Buddha in the middle of the restaurant just BEGGED to be sketched.
