I had to get out. Summer is almost over and I’ve done NOTHING! I know you’ve heard it all before but I really had to try to get out so I bought a ticket on the River Quest Lighthouse Cruise. River Quest runs cruises on the lower end of the Connecticut River. I’ve been on a couple of their Eagle Cruises.
It takes about 2 hours to get there but the cruises are always fun. relaxing and educational. The lighthouse cruise is only done once a year and it’s the only cruise that leaves the Connecticut River and ventures into the Long Island Sound.
So here are a few images from my day:
2 hours later there’s the Goodspeed Opera House!
Look what happens when you do not get the proper permits!
My spare car is a Helicopter…how’d you like to commute with that?
and more Osprey
One More Osprey
Oh those poor people who live along the river. (They are all either attorneys or car salesmen)
The rest of the poor people have boats.
I 95 just ahead.
Under I 95.
Let’s go to the town dock for a little fishing.
There’s the Acela train!
This little lighthouse is actually a room for rent.
There’s the first lighthouse.
Lighthouse one and two.
The breakwater lighthouse.
Now that’s what I call “Gone Fishing”
St. John’s Boys School for troubled youths.
Jet Skis on the river
Wave to the Becky Thatcher!
Heading back to the dock.
We’re back in Eagle Park. Time for lunch.
