Stony Creek Paint out - Thursday Oct 29

The forecast is 69 degrees next Thursday, so let's paint one more time near the water before it gets too cold and we are chased inland.  A shower is forecast at some point with periods of sun.  So let's see if it makes for a good plein air day.  If it's only a spotty shower, there are two gazebos for cover.

We will meet at our usual time of 9 AM.

STONY CREEK WATERFRONT, Stony Creek (Branford) 

Heading north/east on I-95, take Exit 56. Turn right (south) onto Leete's Island Road. 
Heading south/west on I-95, take Exit 56. Turn left onto E. Industrial Road. After 0.3 mi., at the traffic light, turn left again (south) onto Leete's Island Road. 

On Leete's Island Road, go 1.6 mi to a stop sign at Rte 146. Stony Creek Package Store will be in front of you. Cross Rte 146 diagonally to Thimble Island Road, going between the package store and a shop called Taken for Granite. Go about 0.4 mile, passing under a railroad bridge. After the bridge, continue for about 0.2 mi. to the area along the sea wall, near the gazebo by the beach.  There's another gazebo farther down by the boat taxis and tour boats.  

For those who want to meet for lunch, we will eat at Stony Creek Pizza (they don't serve pizza at lunchtime) around noonish.
