The New Haven Green, New Haven, Connecticut (1)

This 16.5-acre outdoor space in the central square of the nine squares was originally designed in 1638 by the settlers of the New Haven Colonyas common space for cultural, civic, religious, and educational purposes and gatherings. It is one of the oldest continuously used public spaces in the United States and is on the National Register of Historic Places and designated as a National Historic Landmark District.


Since I had to go to a doctor’s office, Kevin gave me a ride down to New Haven. After seeing the doctor, we went for a short walk to New Haven Green. I captured some photos. There is a bus station and so many questionable people on and around New Haven Green. We didn’t feel comfortable at New Haven Green. We made our way to the car to get back home.


National Umbrella Day 2023 ☂⛱

Biergarten covered with colorful umbrellas at the State Fair

National Umbrella Day casts a little shade on February 10th. The day honors one of the world’s most useful inventions, the umbrella!

Not only does the umbrella help keep us dry from the rain, but it also protects us from the heat of the sun. You can also use an umbrella as a fashion accessory. While the umbrella is primarily practical, they also decorate cocktails. These brightly colored paper umbrellas make fun party favors, especially when visiting sunny locations.
