My traveling shoes haven’t gotten much use lately. Travel plans have fallen by the wayside. Delays, cancellations and other disappointments have been rearing their ugly heads at all turns.

And wouldn’t you know that nature would provide us with one of those brutally cold, snowy winters that makes one really want to leave town in a hurry. But stuck here we are, so we have to make the best of it.
About the only traveling I have been doing lately is the 2 hour drive to Foxwoods Resort Casino in Connecticut. Almost on a weekly basis.

Not my favorite place. I don’t gamble, so for me it’s just a glitzy place. Not much to do here unless you gamble. Unless you count people watching. The people watching can be good, but you can only do so much of that.

My husband likes to gamble. Blackjack is his game. He usually makes the trip to Foxwoods to get his blackjack fix with our son and our nephew. But they have both had busy schedules and haven’t made the trip for a while.

So that leaves me. I get to make the trip with hubby. We do get a room and stay overnight when I come along. So at least I have a place to retreat to. The hotel rooms are lovely, spacious and very comfortable so no complaints in that department.

I do make use of the 4 hours of driving time by bringing along knitting or crochet projects. And the drive through the Connecticut countryside has some of the prettiest New England scenery.

And our weekly jaunts have made this interminable winter go by a little faster.

Before I know it, it will be March and I will be traveling to Mexico for a much waited for vacation.
