Another wonderful day revisiting and exploring familiar sites near Glastonbury Connecticut.  Essex is about 45 minutes drive away and we’ve done it many times.  We had a lovely day with lunch at Griswold Inn and then a cruise up the river and back.  Always a treat.  This area is so steeped in history.   I’m eager to learn more.

The picture below is from  a game park in southern Africa – an encounter between 2 types of storks – credit to a blog I follow, A Bushsnob in Africa.

I’ll add more pictures and  information when I get back to Seattle – I’m back and some pictures have been added to the original post.

    My parents used to take me to the Griswold Inn when they visited me in college (I was in New London).

    Amy, were you at Connecticut College? My mother graduated from Connecticut College for Women in 1932.
