What do I love about Washington, CT?

I really enjoy driving around Lake Waramaug, sometimes I feel as if I will burst from the beautiful scenery! I can't say there is one part of Washington I don't enjoy driving through, I take my time and drink it all in. It is truly an amazing amount of eye candy! I am facinated by rich sense of community, proud of the many local artists who support the town in a variety of ways, those who volunteer their time to serve the town.  I adore the antique homes, the manicured lawns behind stone walls, the fields and farmlands, I just love it all.
