In which we discuss:
- How can we survive spring in Connecticut?
- Do legends and lore drive us to explore regional destinations?
- Should we let our travel choices be guided by the stars?
In this episode, Kerri and Johnna talk about how to get through the grey and drizzly days of spring, why we seek out haunted (or “haunted”) New England places, and what we think about travel horoscopes.
Check out Johnna’s Tucson pictures on Instagram. Learn more about the Meriden Daffodil Festival and the Litchfield Daffodils. Read about Wooster Square and their cherry blossoms, and check out Johnna’s wintery Wooster Square Park blog bost. Plan a trip to the West Hartford Reservoir (bike optional) and see the Cosmic Omelet menu Kerri has been obsessing over.
Get directions to Dogtown in MA and read what Johnna wrote about her visit last year. (If you’d like to read more about the area’s history, check out the book Dogtown by Elyssa East.) Read Johnna’s post about New Castle, NH (which she erroneously calls Castle Island here, because its original name was Great Island and she can’t really think properly in spring) and Richard Chamberlayne’s Lithobolia. (For more, read the book The Devil of Great Island by Emerson W. Baker.) Plan a visit to Devil’s Hopyard State Park, Gay City State Park, or Satan’s Kingdom State Recreation Area. Listen to the episodes of SYSK and Lore about the Jewett City Vampires. See Damned Connecticut for more information about allegedly haunted places in the state, plus, the Fisher. See what Johnna saw in Centralia, PA.
