But not a major attraction. Beautiful in the fall, and the ocean is lovely. Medlyn's Dairy is a great local landmark.

Rte 146 is a great road for leaf-peeping and for seeing the wonderful countryside of old New England. Make sure to stop at Stony Creek.

Ride along 146 from Branford to Guilford and enjoy the smell of the sound, the birds and the farmlands along the drive. Stop at Medlyn's in Branford for fresh eggs - it's self serve. There are some friendly kitties that may greet you.
