It was an overcast morning when my best friend, David Albaugh, and I drove down from his native Rhode Island to see the Dinosaur Place in Montville, Connecticut. He’d already written about this attraction on the site we share, Terror from Beyond the Daves, but I refused to even look at that post back then since I knew I’d want to see it for myself. Unfortunately, the one day we had to visit was slated for thunderstorms and I came dangerously close to taking a literal rain check. However, after pondering things a bit, we accepted the fact that lousy weather was no match for the magnetic pull of its super-sized dinosaur gift shop, and made the trip anyway. I’m sure happy we did as the rain held off till much later and, unlike the one hundred degree weather he dealt with during his last visit, the temperature was perfect.
