Thanks to the New England Independent Bookseller Association Website I had a place to start. My first Literary Adventure started with the Dr. Seuss National Memorial Sculptured Garden in Springfield, MA.
Of course, I had to sit in the famous "Oh, the places you'll go" seat.
Let me just say....in nearly 100 degree weather that chair is hot, hot, hot!

On our way back home, we stopped at The Alphabet Garden in Cheshire, CT.
It is a small store with a great selection of books. I found some of my favorites.

Finishing up the day, we had to stop at my favorite Italian Ice Shop - Rita's in Southington, CT.
This is a once a year treat and I got my favorite - watermelon and cantaloup (which is hidden below the watermelon). It is made from real fruit so it is especially yummy!!!
