The two RV Gypsies drove scenic route loop #2 to see Fall Colors in Connecticut and they stopped at the West Cornwall Covered Bridge In Litchfield County.

October 8, 2013

The West Cornwall Covered Bridge is a two span Town Lattice and Queenpost Truss with a total length of 242 feet. It carries CT128 over the Housatonic River in the town of West Cornwall. This historic bridge was built in 1841. It is a two-way bridge, but cars must take turns driving through it because it is only one lane. (Note: there is also a West Cornwall Covered Bridge aka Hart Bridge in Cornwall, Connecticut on Route 128).

After walking through the covered bridge, Karen Duquette walked up a side road a bit to take photos of the covered bridge. The bridge looks dark instead of red in the photos below because Karen had to aim the camera towards the sun.

Karen aimed the camera away from the bridge (and the sun) to get nice colorful photos of the surrounding area.

unhappy face  After photographing the West Cornwall Covered Bridge, the two RV Gypsies stopped to eat at The Wandering Moose Cafe and Catering Company that is located near the covered bridge. There were several EMPTY  tables and booths, and no sign that said if they should wait to be seated or if they should seat themselves, so the two RV Gypsies took a seat at a small booth that was already cleared.

The waitress came over and asked "How many are you?" and Karen answered "two". So the waitress told them to move to a a very small table that was extremely close to another table that was occupied. First of all, Karen thought the waitress spoke quite rudely. Second of all, there were NOT any other customers waiting to be seated. Thirdly, there would be plenty of room for other customers if she would just clear off the dirty tables and booths. Since Karen did not wish to practically sit on top of the customers at the other table, she told Lee that she wanted to leave. No, no, no, the two RV Gypsies will NEVER return to The Wandering Moose Cafe to eat.

The above comments are just the experience of the two RV Gypsies. These comments do not make the restaurant good or bad in general.
