Early in the morning Marabeth's daughter Amy came with her family. I loved meeting her and her husband Jonas and their lovely dog Sashta!They have three great yoga studios up in New Hampshire called Zev Yoga and they are starting a great retreat up in Maine, which we visited later on in our trip.
Arthur. Yes, believe it or not while in the States we even experienced a hurricane. It was category 2, it had its peak on the 4th of July but luckily where we were in Connecticut it was rather mild compared to other areas! Still, it was a hurricane! Those of you who know that I am afraid of thunderstorms, especially lightning, can understand me! Anyway...
due to Arthur we had to postpone the 4th of July festivities for the next day!
So what could one do when it is supposedly a National Holiday but it is raining cats and dogs and everything is closed? You can go to the casino!Right!
There are two casinos in the area where Marabeth lives and I really wanted to visit one because I had read that there was a Chihuly Art Glass fountain in it. So I dropped the idea, that since we had nothing to do and the food for the next day was ready and all the decorations up why don't we go out! Yes amidst the heavy rain! What an adventurer I am when I am on a trip abroad!
So we went to the casinos.
First to the Foxwoods Resort Casino. It belongs to the Mashantucket Pequot Indians. It was huge.
See the weather?
The Mohegan Sun! I guess it belongs to the last of the Mohegans!
Chihuly fountain!Are you ready for lots of photos?Purple glass! Bliss!
Michael Jordan Restaurant too!
