Foodies, Friends, and Forts

We stayed in South New Jersey for a week so we could see the Delaware State Capitol Building. We struggled with connectivity here too. The Delaware State Capitol Building looks more like a building you might find on a small University campus somewhere. It’s very small and sparsely decorated. It didn’t take us long to … Continue reading »

Connecticut

We spent one week in Connecticut. The State Capitol Building is impressive. The dome was beautiful. You know I’m a sucker for a good dome. I love this one! The architecture was interesting. I’m also a sucker for a good staircase. There were stained glass windows and richly painted walls. It’s called the Charter Oak Chair. … Continue reading »

Springfield, IL

We’re making our way to the Eastern states for this year’s loop. There will be a few states that we just kind of skim through on the way there and Illinois is one of those skim states this year. We only stayed for a week and we only hit one city. Springfield. We do have … Continue reading »
