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.

    I went to college nearby and used to visit Essex.

    If I recall correctly, you attended Connecticut College (for Women) – My mother graduated from Connecticut College for Women in 1932 – she was a physics major.

    In reply to your identification off the Connecticut River – well, I agree that it looks like it but in fact I didn’t have access to my library of photos when I wrote that blog. So I “borrowed” a photo from a friend who recently visited Switzerland!
