North Guilford Fun

This is Lake Quonnipaug in North Guilford. Oh the fun we've had here swimming and playing. North Guilford is absolutely beautiful, as is much of Connecticut. There are no motor boats allowed on this lake, but it is serene and a perfect quiet retreat. You can kayak or canoe to your hearts content.
We have had so much fun this week. The kids love it. They can spend all their time out on the docks, and there is a public beach right on the other side of the lake.
Here is a great photo of the gorgeous sky.

There is a lot of wildlife here. Ducks swim right up to us while we're playing. There are also swans, hawks, cormorants, herons, turtles, geese... There is a lot of great fishing here. Bass and Trout.

If you get tired of playing at the lake, you can take a drive or a walk around the gorgeous countryside. There is a lot of farmland. There are spacious fields and many beautiful antique homes.

This house, also on the lake had a pretty cottage garden and picket fence. I couldn't resist taking a picture.

This is the back of the North Guilford Fire Station. It is right in the middle of a farm. I took this from the other side of the farm across a field.

This is the end of Lake Quonnipaug. I love all of the water lilies. There is usually a family of swans swimming around this area, but they weren't here when I took the pictures.

I love these lilies. If you come to visit North Guilford, there is a farmer's market in North Guilford on Saturday mornings from 9am-noon at Dudley's Farm on Rt 77.
