Our next stop (Tuesday, October 12) was at Mark Twain's home in Hartford, CT. We arrived very early so that "The Ark" would have a parking spot in the lot (and so that we wouldn't hold up traffic while we got a shot of OUR home in front of the OTHER Mark's home.) We were wondering what Mark Twain would have said about our very different Earthbound RV!
We really enjoyed touring the home, servant's quarters, and museum, and we spent almost half the day there. Very few areas were roped off, and we really felt like we'd been invited into the private environs of Samuel Clemens.
It was thrilling to visit his billiard/writing room on the top floor where he created some of his greatest works. I was trying hard to capture as much of the creative vibe swirling around as I could!
Mark Twain is one of my favorite writers, and if you read the quote to the right, maybe you can understand why. I guess I'd better start planning my Around the Equator Music Tour!
