Hula hooping with a view in New London
New London — "I can't stop smiling when I'm out here doing this," Sheryl Jenings said as she hula hooped Thursday in the Fort Trumbull neighborhood. "This is my stress reliever."
Jennings started practicing hula hoop about a year ago and goes somewhere with a view, like the grassy lot along Bowditch Street, a few times a week where she can keep her car running and the music playing. "I guess it's a COVID hobby," she said, "I needed a new way to get outside where I feel safe and get moving this last year."
