Nature At Hammonasset Beach

 Here in southeastern Connecticut we are fortunate to have Hammonasset State Park, which is located in Madison. The beautiful walking trails attract visitors and campers from all over. In this post I will share photos I took while spending time at this beautiful state treasure. The marshes can be even more beautiful that the beach areas, displaying different colors throughout the year. Take a break, relax and enjoy the scenery!

    Love the purple sand!

   A very strange but beautiful sky that day. The boulders are at Meig's Point the far end of Hammonasset State Park

                             While walking, I came across this unique piece of beach art
Some sort of red succulents are exhibiting the gorgeous red color. If anyone knows the name of the plant, leave a comment.

First Parmelee Farm Farmer's Market 2015

 The first Parmelee Farm farmer's market was held on Saturday June 13th, 2015.... and it was a big success. There were many interesting vendors and the parking lot was full! The newly renovated pavilion provided the perfect shelter for many of the vendors while the overflow with tents set up outside of the pavilion.
