"T Stands For Teddy, Tea, and Spooky Trails Book" – Photograph

I am joining Bleubeard and Elizabeth for this week's T Stands For challenge found here.

This is my summation of the past week:

Teddy will be serving double duty as my main image plus as my "T-Day ticket" for my T-Day posts.

As many of you might know, ghosts, haunted locations, etc. are a favorite subject of mine. I have never experienced anything supernatural, but I enjoy searching for it during my Haunted Explorations of (allegedly) Haunted Places.

I received the non-fiction book Spooky Trails and Tall Tales Connecticut: Hiking the State's Legends, Hauntings, and History by Stephen Gencarella, as a Christmas gift this year. (He also has a similar book for Massachusetts).

He combines historical facts and tales with the actual locations where one can go hiking. He presents the information in a fun way, and made me chuckle a few times as I read this book. Many of the haunted stories seemed to be created (or revived) to boost tourism in the state in those places, in the early decades of the 1900s, which was interesting to learn.

I'm hoping to get to some of the places he mentioned as hiking outings with Team T, this Spring. Although Connecticut is one of the smallest states in the US, some of the locations are somewhat far from where I am, so they would have to be planned as day trips. Teddy is already saying the ghosts are real in all of these places, and we need to go find them! I told Teddy he should write his own book, titled Teddy Tall Tales. ;-)

Aspetuck Park (Flood Waters After Rain Storm) - Photograph

I took those photographs at Aspetuck Park in Easton, CT this past week. Parts of the park were flooded due to the 1.5"+ of rain that fell in this area. Normally, the base of the wood platform (third photo) is visible, as can be seen here. Although it's hard to tell in the second photo, the water was level with, and went around, that side of the bridge. The leaf debris on the bridge shows the water had been higher than that, at the height of the storm.
