Ivoryton, Connecticut Day 34 (GA546)

Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.
Because we have 5,000+ postings, I’ve invited her to continue posting entries on this blog.

I’m currently in my 24th year of full-time RVing and my lifestyle is changing, For more info click Here

——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

The motorhome is parked at Shady Acres RV Park in Yuma, Arizona. I may be here until March 4th.

 

 

 

Since my RVing life is changing (see above), I’m starting to re-visit previously visited places. So rather than constantly re-blogging past entries, I’ve decided to do something different.

This entry was posted July 11, 2013…

 

 

 

 

The motorhome is parked at my son’s home where I’m expected to remain until July 14th visiting with my family.

 

 

Mary is back at  her home in California tending to some personal business. She has a tentative return-to-me-date of July 23rd.

 

 

In recent days, I have introduced to you the Village of Essex less than five miles from my son’s home. In those entries I’ve started showing images taken at the Connecticut River Museum located in Essex.

 

 

At 407 miles, it’s the longest river in New England. Starting at the New Hampshire/Canada border it flows into Long Island Sound. You can read all about the Connecticut River by clicking this Wikipedia link…
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Connecticut_River

 

 

The museum has three floors. Floors one and two have permanent exhibits. Floor three has changing exhibits…currently it’s about bridges over the Connecticut River. In the past three days, I showed photos of some of those bridges. Today is the final day of those photos…

Ivoryton, Connecticut Day 29 (GA541)

Mary is no longer available for RV traveling, but we remain good friends.
Because we have 5,000+ postings, I’ve invited her to continue posting entries on this blog.
To view past blogs, scroll to the bottom of this page and use the menu.
I’m currently in my 24th year of full-time RVing and my lifestyle is changing, For more info click Here

——————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————-

The motorhome is parked at Shady Acres RV Park in Yuma, Arizona. I may be here until March 4th.

 

 

 

Since my RVing life is changing (see above), I’m starting to re-visit previously visited places. So rather than constantly re-blogging past entries, I’ve decided to do something different.

This entry was posted July 6, 2013…

 

 

 

The motorhome is parked at my son’s home where I’m expected to remain until July 17th visiting with my family.

 

 

Mary is back at  her home in California readying for a family reunion. She has a tentative return-to-me-date of July 16th.

 

 

In three recent days, I introduced to you the Village of Essex less than five miles from my son’s home.

 

 

In those entries I’ve started showing images taken at the Connecticut River Museum located in Essex. In the next several Blog entries I’ll share more photos with you.

 

 

Today I want to discuss the Connecticut River itself…

 

 

At 407 miles, it’s the longest river in New England. Starting at the New Hampshire/Canada border it flows into Long Island Sound. You can read all about the Connecticut River by clicking this Wikipedia link…

As always you may left click upon an image to see an enlarged view and then click once again to see an even larger view…

Essex is only six miles from the sound. The below image marks Essex with the yellow arrow. The upper bridge is Interstate Highway 95 and the lower bridge is a long-standing railroad bridge…

Below the railroad bridge is Long Island Sound…

Here’s a nautical chart of the area…

The Connecticut River Museum is located at the end of Main Street right on the river…

Enjoying historical places is another joy of the full-timing lifestyle!
