Autumn Arrives in Bolton

Autumn arrived over the weekend in Bolton. It felt like summer, but fall was here. Shep and I took a cruise around town to stretch the legs after the NEMBA Fall Fiesta. We walked through our neighborhood, then checked out the Bolton (Connecticut) Town Green. This coming weekend, there is a ceremony to unveil a new memorial honoring Bolton’s combat veterans (2oth and 21st century wars). The momument was under a tarp.

Most of the time, I’m just passing through the center of town. This time, I actually stopped and read some of the neat signage. Bolton is an old town, by US standards. It isn’t quite 300 years old, but it is still old.

Welcome to Bolton!

Bolton has a Revolutionary War history. Jean-Baptiste Donatien de Vimeur, comte de Rochambeau, a French general, led his troops through Connecticut on his way to Yorktown, Virginia, where he met up with George Washington’s army and helped defeat the British. The Washington-Rochambeau Revolutionary Route (W3R) National Historic Trail passes through Bolton and is one of the town’s most historical significances.

The Rochambeau Route info sign.

I recently commented on the National Park Service plan that is being drafted to preserve the history of this trail. When you live in New England, you are used to seeing some cool historical stuff. Knowing that Rochambeau and his forces camped at Rose Farm, right near our house, makes it even cooler.

I never post about food. However, this is the second time this week that I’m posting about food. These #vegan dishes at Empress by @theprivegroup were awesome. #instavegan #singapore Everything worked out fine for @trailrunningmom After a little stress, they had her race packet and bib number at the @metasprintseries venue and she kept it upright on the bike! 🚴🏽 She was very pleased with 2nd place 🏆 in her age group at her first road #Duathlon.🏃🏻There are no mountains ⛰ and there isn’t much singletrack in #singapore but it’s still a great city for endurance sports. It looked like there were more than 1,500 athletes at the 3K/18K/3K race with LOTS of kids too. Great vibe! #triathlonsg #teamhorstsports 🇺🇸 Our kids may recognize this great Shoppes @marinabaysands feature from six years ago. I had forgotten how cool it was. #singapore #marinabaysands First time on a road bike for @trailrunningmom In advance of her first ever road duathlon @metasprintseries I taught her some tips & tricks including the do's/don'ts of shifting strategy, cornering, blocking (not), drafting (not), passing, flying mount/dismount, etc. It was fun! Even though she was on a "rental" too, I couldn't keep up on my "steed." #triathlonsg #singapore #teamhorstsports @thecheryltan #cheryltan #singapore #singapore Name those tunes. 11-year-old Feng E is making a name for himself in Asia and beyond. #guitar #fenge #singapore 🎸 @trailrunningmom led #yoga at #ypoedge #singapore 

@ypoglobal #yogini Tremendous #vegan dinner @metasingapore Without a heads up, Chef Sun and his team whipped up an amazing seven course + three “snacks” meal for @trailrunningmom and me, that was worthy of their @michelinguide star. We sat at the counter and watched every step in the process. Chef said that with advanced notice (of our diet), he “would have done better.” We appreciated his perfectionism, but it was just fine. #metarestaurant #instavegan #michelinguide #singapore
