After a shockingly short drive, we have passed through 4 states to arrive in our first vacation spot; Connecticut! Though mostly conducted in the dark, the drive was quite nice. I don't think I'll ever forget my first sight of NYC; all the lights of the million windows were glittering brightly, the Empire State Building all lit up, just like you see in the movies. We, however, were on one of those wild concrete freeway bridges above several other freeway bridges, putting us up about 13 stories in the air and I was frogging a sweater beginning for the 3rd time (joining without twisting in the dark is apparently beyond me).
This is our 2nd day in CT and we're enjoying it so far. There has been some good knitting and playing in the hotel with the kids while DH works. We got a great pizza last night and even some good coffee and are apparently far enough from Philly that not *everyone* who works in the food service industry is surlier than a dock worker at 4 am.
Tomorrow our vacation starts in earnest!
