N is for New HavenOne month ago I moved to the City of New Haven in Connecticut. New Haven is home to Yale University, the Amistad Schooner and lots of 17th Century history of the first settlers to the new land. I've shown you a few photos of the immediate New Haven Green area. There are lots of great neighborhoods and history that will show up in later ABC Wednesday posts.A view down Chapel Street that runs along New Haven Green. The 17th century Puritan founders chose a nine square plan with streets and houses that surrounded the Public Square.The immediate building in the front is City Hall. The carillon chimes to mark the hours. I liked the old framed by the new building.
On New Haven Green there are three churches that sit side by side. One is Episcopal and the other two are United Church of Christ.
This sculpture sits in the city hall plaza. It's titled "On High" by Alexander Lieberman.

L is for LaceMy daughter is getting married in September and we've been looking at dresses. She has found her dress and she found some other beautiful lacy dresses too. You'll have to wait until September to see "the one"! For other great L posts see Mrs. Nesbitt at ABC Wednesday...quick...time is running out...go now...fast...before it's too late.

K is for Kormorant. I was on Cape Cod in October and found the kormorants sitting on the sand sunning themselves. Then, something spooked them and they all took off. It looked chaotic at first but then they got it all together. I think that kormorant can also be spelled with a c as in cormorant. I've been saving these photos for my K entry so there you go! For more K entries you can see Mrs. Nesbitt at ABC Wednesday.

A J late and a dollar short.
That's what I am this week, late. Even though it is Wednesday still in Connecticut, I realize that most ABCer's post on Tuesday. So, here's a late J and not so creative, but...This is a photo of Jerusalem during a hamseen. Hamseen's are hot, dry winds that blow in from the desert and stagnate. They last for a day or two and then when the winds kick up but they are cool and they blow all the schmutz out of the air. The schmutz...sand!
