Leonardo Benzant

Leonardo Benzant

I saw Leonardo’s art after we friended each other on facebook. I immediately connected to his images and I was reminded of my days studying abroad in Senegal, West Africa. I spent a lot of time at the artist village and watched the Senegalese craftsman dye fabrics and create beautiful works of art. I asked Leonardo if he’d like in share his work with our visitors and I’m happy he did.

Fall Short List

Fall Short List

Now that summer is over, I’ve given some thought to my short list of fall adventures. I will be heading north to one of my favorite spots on the eastern seaboard, Captain Scott’s Lobster Dock in New London, Connecticut. I traveled the Connecticut coast line last summer. I must say that Connecticut has some of the best public and private beaches around. The water is beautiful and clean and the seafood is exceptional. Captain Scott’s is worth the 3 hour drive coming and going.
