This turns out to be the #1 personal story of 2009, the pictures and the experience. It was a little more than a full week of FUN with my Sunshine. It might have been cloudy on certain days. But she was there to shine the light on the journey.

When my wife and I approached the sign, we thought that it was another one of those generic signs ...

I took this picture right after I discovered where the El Polo Loco was located down a hallway in the Foxwoods Casino.

In a distance is the corn maze that Sunshine and I thought would be nice to walk through. However, as you can see the green picture on its Web site wasn't green at all! It didn't look that interesting to walk through either.

TONO Reenactment Welcome to New York 10-31-09

I crossed the New Jersey/New York stateline during the night at October 25, 2009, Sunday, at 9:14pm. The sign that I saw was a plain one on a bridge. So this picture of the sign as I traveled from Connecticut/New York line was more interesting.

I took another picture of the Welcome to Delaware sign because this one looks more interesting than the “official” passage of the stateline.

I parked the car on the median between the freeway lanes and the off ramp to get this picture. I thought it was a special occasion to record the first time I am entering Washington D.C.
