Yesterday we took a "daycation".  We are on our way to Maine and stopped in Connecticut for a couple of days to visit a new church on Sunday and so we took a ride on the Essex Steam Train.  We have been in meetings for seven weeks in a row and 18 of the last 19 days so it was a blessing to take a little break.  We purchased the combination that allowed us to also go on the Becky Thatcher, a riverboat that takes passengers on a tour of a stretch of the Connecticut River.  It was a great time and we enjoyed ourselves very much.

There were lots of beautiful sights to see from the boat.  Absolutely gorgeous homes (and very expensive!) are dotted all along the river.  I have posted just a few pictures here but if you would like to see more, you can click here to see the photo gallery I created on Photobucket.

Here is a link to the Essex Steam Train web site if you're interested.
