"It's so curious: one can resist tears and 'behave' very well in the hardest of hours of grief. But then someone makes you a friendly sign behind a window,
or one notices that a flower that was in bud only yesterday has suddenly blossomed.
or a letter slips from a drawer...and everything collapses."

My husband and I went to Foxwoods Resort and Casino to dine at the Festival Buffet. We were lucky enough to be seated right next to the seafood section of the buffet. We were amazed at the size of the casino. It was BIG. We aren't gamblers but enjoyed the food and shopping.

5/11 Outdoor Wednesday #122


This week decided to post a photograph of Castle Craig, Hubbard Park, Meriden, CT. If you would like to participate or view other blogs who have posted an outdoor theme click logo above. Thank you Susan for being our hostess.






Tip: This image was discovered by shooting through a rectangular opening in a wall near the falls. Look at the shot. Discover a different way to shoot it. How? If you are a short person, walk around until you can look at things like a tall person can. Get on the ground and shoot as low as you can go. Shoot around, through, up, down, climb, just do what you can do to obtain that different way of seeing.


Thanks for stopping by, I hope you will visit next week. Meanwhile, take care.
