The sunset resort

I'm not alone in having memories of the funky resort known, at the time of its demise, as the Sunrise Resort.

I first knew it as Ted Hilton's when in junior high, and high school, we had end of year outings at the Moodus resort, hard by the Salmon River.

Decades later when I returned to host the first Cajun and Zydeco Music and Arts Festival, it was like stepping into a time warp. Nothing had changed.

That Cajun and Zydeco Music Festival lasted for more than a decade, but now that the state owns the resort, one wonders if that festival, or others, like the annual dixieland jazz band festival will continue.
