First Monday at Brialee Campground in Ashford Connecticut May 18,2015

Today is our first Monday here – we arrived on Saturdat  afternoon and have been setting up and finding out where we stored everything over the winter. We have had two great overnights and find the bed very comfortable. Lenny is very happy and likes being outside so much. We had our first fire in the campsite last night complete with marshmallows. Lenny thought that process was weird – setting fire to food then eating it seemed slightly crazy. We have met a few camp neighbors and they all seem very nice and friendly.  This will be our home base for the summer allowing us to take trips west and south from here.  The two week in the Poconos & Catskills will be the July trip – we may do a short trip before July 11th.  Hey there are bugs here – mosquitoes but out citronella candles and bracelets are working great. Today we got our Internet working so we are online full time again. We plan to find the Lowes and Stop/Shop later today. Will miss the Market Basket & Whole Foods but I bet there’s fresh produce around here somewhere. 

Tons of birds in all the trees which for a city kid who lived by the water for the last 20 yrs with few trees – this is pretty cool. We heard a woodpecker this morning and saw a group of blue jays.  Also We will plant a small flower garden and some herbs.  Lots of maple trees and pines in the area – we will need our trees & shrubs reference to get more specific.
