Mary South’s “Keeping It Real” column in the November issue is outstanding. I grew up in Middletown, Connecticut, and summered in Old Saybrook, Connecticut. We made many visits to Essex, just upriver from Old Saybrook, and fall was my favorite time of year. You can’t beat a cool fall day while sitting around a fire at the Griswold Inn, drinking a hot toddy.
Now at age 75, I have retired to Florida, where we have heat, humidity and hurricanes. I must say I don’t miss the ice and snow. Keep up the good work with Soundings.
