I went to CT for the weekend and had my first hike of spring on Saturday at Chatfield Hollow State Park in Killingworth, CT. That sort of thing can be very exciting in its way. Do you people like nature? I find it tremendously restorative to walk in the woods, even when it’s chilly and damp and the trees are still bare.

Here’s the beguiling Flintstonian lavender floor at the Parthenon Diner, Old Saybrook, CT. While I was taking this photo my stepfather said “That is a very famous pattern. It’s called ‘bathroom floor.'”

Sunday was too cold for hiking so we bundled up and went for a walk on the beach instead.

Saw this on the way home on I-95. Go ahead and take down the number for your friend. You can’t really see it here but one of the people painted on the windows is saying “hey man, got a smoke?”

There are older photos from a similar field trip on my other blog here if you are really into having a mental visit to CT today. Playlist too.

There are a dangerous number of pukey tourists out and about today so let’s stay in and watch videos ALL DAY LONG. I am very, very fond of this guy suburbanbatherson’s stuff, both his taste in music and his hoarding / editing of imagery to accompany it. Look:

Jacno, Triangle (you people know I love Jacno . . .)
