Jeanette and I have been riding around the Connecticut countryside these last few weeks and truly enjoying all that fall has to offer. The leaves have been in various stages of color, and I might add they are as beautiful this year as any of the 50 plus years I have been viewing them. In our travels we have seen many small farms along the way. These are family farms, with livestock, fruits and vegetables. Some even offer homemade baked goods such as pies, cookies, and breads. A few of these came home with us.
So join us on this little road trip.
There were about a dozen of these cows on this farm. They took an interest in us briefly but settled in to what they prefer.
I can't begin to tell you of the many flocks of wild turkeys we encountered. Here they seemed to be enjoying insects and not worrying about the fella with the camera.
We crossed over many streams in our travels. Connecticut is blessed with these waters, many of which have no names. Some of these are full of brook trout some are not.
We came upon this place, and I said to Jeanette I want to buy it...perhaps in another time. The rustic barn with those colorful fields were eye candy, and we viewed it for quite some time before we ventured up the farm road.
While walking through the field we encountered this little stream. It was choked with fallen leaves but still had good water flow. There were many little nooks and crannies where fish could hide.
When a little wet fly was pulsed near a root undercut a wild brook trout took it.
These are the days.
