The Connecticut River

Some sights along the Connecticut River, where we’ve sailed for over 30 years.  It’s a bucolic area, so lush after the sandy, somewhat barren look of the outer end of Long Island.  There is an osprey on the nest in the second photo.  I might crop it when I get home so you can see her better.

Photos I missed: lots of ospreys, lots of swans, a duck taking flight right next to our boat, and a bald eagle in a tree.  Oh well.

I'm just down the road, as it were, in North Stonington. Your photos reminded me of what lovely spots there are along the river.
