Connecticut – Falls Village

I visited the Isabella Freedman Jewish Retreat Center in Falls Village.   Falls Village is at the northwest corner of the state.   (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Isabella_Freedman_Jewish_Retreat_Center & http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Falls_Village,_Connecticut)

JewRetrtCtrFallsVillageCT06212014 (12)I connected with a staff member while looking for a couchsurfing host in Connecticut.  He invited me to be his guest at the Center.  I jumped at the chance.

I stayed in a private room in his staff apartment.   The view from my room was gorgeous – surrounded by trees…

Connecticut – Kent (Bulls Bridge)

My travels took me Bulls Bridge in Kent.  Kent is on the west side of the state.  (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kent,_Connecticut)

Bulls Bridge is an old fashioned, covered bridge over the Housatonic River.   (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Housatonic_River)

The bridge was magnificent, inside and out.

Connecticut – New Milford (Candlewood Lake)

I traveled to New Milford.  It’s located about 15 miles north of Danbury, in the west end of the state.  (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_Milford,_Connecticut)

I visited Candlewood Lake.  It was gorgeous…  (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Candlewood_Lake)

The path around the lake was beautiful….

Brave folks were jumping off the cliffs into the water….  (Look half way down the cliff, there is a guy in mid-air)
