Today Wilma, Gus, and I Adventured to Downtown Norwich, Connecticut. Norwich is the where the Yantic, Shetucket, and the Quinebaug flow into the Thames River. It is home to a minor league baseball team, the Norwich Sea Unicorns.
We had a random adventure to Downtown Norwich. I was disappointed to have to change my adventure plans for the weekend due to a mini–New England snowstorm. Therefore, I decided to check out Norwich, a town I had always been curious about. We arrived and found parking easily. It was a windy day, and there were limited people out and about. We walked around locating city hall, some shop and restaurants, and a riverside park. I was disappointed to see a sign indicated no dogs allowed at the park, as there appeared to be a nice trail paralleling the river.
Although we spent a good amount of time wandering and walking the town, there was little to be found of interest. One thing I did appreciate was various paintings on cement barriers around the city. Throughout our visit we encountered many people who appeared to be transient, and others who begging for money. Although I had not thoroughly researched Norwich, I was surprised to find this was the theme of our visit today. Far from a lovely visit, but we still were able to get a good walk in before heading to a familiar park. Glad I will no longer be curious about the town of Norwich (This blog will not be rated).
