Waiting For Another Hockey Game

I have been coming to Trinity Pawling to watch  my children play hockey for eight years now. Waiting for my daughters game to start, I had a little extra time today and since it was a sunny 60 degrees (very odd for mid February!), I decided to walk around and take some pictures. I certainly hope that you enjoy them.

An Old Church in Simsbury, CT

An old church in Simsbury, CT. The origins of this church go back to 1697! In my mind I can see it in the middle of nowhere but instead it is surrounded by modern technology. Power lines, traffic lights and of course cars surround this beautiful building.

A One Of A Kind Ice Rink

“I call architecture frozen music.”

– Johann Wolfgang von Goethe

Most of the ice rinks that you see these days are mainly large industrial building that lack any type of architectual savvy. Over the fifteen years that I have traveling to rinks in New York, New Jersey, Connecticut and Massachusetts,  not many have the complexity that the Jackson Rink at the Westminster school in Simsbury, CT has. This is without a doubt the nicest (and coldest) rink that I have seen either of my children play in. A truly beautiful building. Check out the photos of the interior of the rink.
