CT Photographer ~ Taylor Brooke Winery {Woodstock, CT}

I love taking trips to “The Quiet Corner” of Connecticut as it is know.  On this day, my long time friend Sandy from Rhode Island and I decided to meet in Woodstock to attend the “Artists in the Country Juried Art Show” and explore other happenings in the area. One of our must have visits…
