"Hi Linda,Thank you so much, Patricia, for writing and I'm glad you've been enjoying the my train pursuits! Thank you, also, for your suggestion to visit Avery Chapel. On Friday I decided to do just that being that the weather was rather nice - especially for January!
I read your blog in the Norwich Bulletin every day. Thank you for sharing. Mostly, I wanted to write and let you know that your pictures are absolutely awesome! You are an artist with a camera. As a train nut, I love your pictures of the local railroad action.
A suggestion if you would like to get some great shots of Norwich from a distance – behind the First Congregational Church in Norwichtown are two paths up to the top of Meeting House Rocks. The view from Avery Chapel is breathtaking.
Again, thank you for sharing.
Some of you may remember that I've posted a picture or two of the First Congregational Church of Norwichtown back when I was doing my Steeple Chasing series that was inspired by Princess Patti of Ansonia in the Valley. Just in case you're new here or you've forgotten - this is it:
Cathedral of the Pines in New Hampshire, a place the Senior Pilgrim Youth Fellowship traveled to every year, it was decided to build a chapel patterned after the Cathedral as a remembrance to Albert.
From the summit one can get a gorgeous view of the Norwichtown Green and some of the historic homes that surround it as well as the Johnson Home for Ladies (the large white building) that sits on the corner of Town Street and West Town Streets. I've often driven by and thought it might not be a bad place to spend one's advancing years as one becomes history while overlooking history.
