Paint out Stony Creek Thursday, Nov 5

The extended forecast for next Wed and Thurs is in the mid to high 60s.  What great weather!  So we can stay on the coast for one more week.  And the four of us this past Thursday were so enchanted with the variety of fall scenes to paint farther down on Thimble Island Road heading towards Flying Point Rd that I thought it deserved another day.  Of course Stony Creek harbor is spectacular in the winter with snow and ice but let's not think about that quite yet.  ;-)

So I'm calling the paint out for Stony Creek again for those who missed it this past week.  Hope to see you there. As usual, we'll eat at Stony Creek Pizza.  (I wish they served their scrumptious thin crust pizza at noon!)


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 to the beach area.  If you want, continue to the little fork in the road and stay left (Thimble Island Road continues) and you can park on either side of that road all the way till it dead ends at the sea wall.
