A Day In Essex (Connecticut) June 24, 2017

Could this be a view along the Connecticut River?

We had a wonderful day in Essex Connecticut, a lovely town on the Connecticut River. Lunching at Marlay’s at the marina in Essex.  Son David had a great time maneuvering my husband’s wheelchair onto the 6 person ferry which took us to Marlay’s on the island.

Essex is such a gem of a town.  After lunch we had a bit of time to shop but it was so hot along the main street, we didn’t linger long to examine all the colorful plants and blossoms in the gardens and the classic beauty of the historic houses.  Another time.

 

Greetings From Connecticut

This blogger is currently enjoying a change of scene, visiting in Connecticut for a week.  So  far I’ve hit the yarn store and L L Bean and the Men’s Grooming Salon for a much needed haircut for my husband.  He rivaled the newly acquired dog Holly.  Pictures to follow.         Lewis Fairfield Burwell   Not my husband or Holly but a picture of flowing locks to sort of give you the idea.   This image is of Lewis Burden, one of my ancestors

Barnes and Noble and Essex await.  As if I had to come to Connecticut to visit Barnes and Noble.
