Morning in Norwalk
Not that you can tell from a picture, but this was taken as we were in the process of beating a hasty retreat. You expect bugs in summer camping - but the rainy spring meant a bumper crop of skeeters too hungry to be put off by silly chemical discouragement. We toughed out the evening (long pants & sleeves & a smoky campfire helped, and a little nice scotch & fireworks in 6 different towns made them a little easier to ignore), but they seemed to be even worse in the morning & between them & a member of our party with an upset tummy, the idea of cooking up a nice camp breakfast of bacon & eggs & hashbrowns was quickly abandoned.
However, the scenery, as usual, left little to be desired!
Thanks for the invitation, R.!
