We wake up in Kansas City at 4:00 a.m. and by 6:15 we were in the air toward Hartford, Ct. by way of Detroit. Our connecting flight was delayed an hour. This trip is so tightly planned that any delay means cancelling part of that day's activities. We land in Hartford and within 20 minutes are entering the Basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield, MA. We spent two hours here and helped out their souvenir shop.
From here we drove through MA into Rhode Island to eat at Evelyn's Drive Inn in Tiverton. This place was on Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives along with our SD favorite Hodad's. A little pricey for my liking although my scallops were great. Kathy prefers clam strips to the full belly clams. It was a beautiful evening, near the bay, seal gulls, sailing boats, cool weather.... great experience. We are a long way from home. We still had a long drive ahead to get to our hotel in Mystic Ct. We took scenic Hwy 1and saw great scenery and mammoth bridges. (Newport). Getting to our room, we still had energy to go get ice cream at the drawbridge.
