Greetings to All,
Are you ready?! I think we finally have a painting day. At least in the morning, before the wind begins to build. So even though the temps are in the low 40's, I'm going to say 9 AM. I may get there earlier.
Let's make it Young's Pond, in Branford, which is nice in the early spring before the greens begin to obscure the views and long before the algae bloom!
So -- just a month beyond our hoped-for starting time, there WILL be a paint-out tomorrow.
Just in case we have new people who don't know how to find Young's Pond, directions are below.
Come on out and taste the open air! I hope to see you there!
YOUNG'S POND, Blackstone Avenue, Branford:
From I-95, take exit 55. Turn west on Route 1, heading toward Branford Center. After about 0.2 mile, take your first left, (south) right after the Mobil station, onto Windmill Hill Road. After about 1/2 mile, turn left (east) on Damascus Road. After about 0.6 mile, bear right (south) on Totucket Road. After about 0.7 mile, Totucket Road becomes Blackstone Avenue. Continue for another half mile. You will pass fairways of the Pine Orchard Country Club on both sides. Young’s Pond Park will be just beyond, on your right. There is a sizable dirt parking area, which hopefully will not be too muddy. (If you reach Pine Orchard Road, you’ve gone too far by about 0.1 mile.)
