Cruisin’ Down The River

Yesterday, I posted about the train portion of a recent trip that Motor Man and I took to Connecticut with friends. The reason the train stopped after about a half hour into the trip…?

It stopped here for us to board the Becky Thatcher Riverboat for the next segment of our excursion.

The riverboat ride lasted about an hour and a half.  We could not have asked for a more perfect weather day. 

We took advantage of the offer to go up on the top deck of the boat: definitely the place to be. These are our friends, Bev and Bill, enjoying the cruise.

I wish we’d had someone take a picture of the four of us together, but we didn’t think to do that.

There was  lots of boat traffic on this beautiful Sunday afternoon.

Including this:  a floating hot dog stand. Since the Becky Thatcher had a snack bar, we didn’t stop here, but we thought it was a clever idea.

And then, far up on a cliff, we saw this.

And tomorrow, I’ll tell you what it is.
