Workers at General Dynamics Electric Boat roll the Virginia-class attack submarine Oregon (SSN 793) out of the main construction building at the Groton shipyard in the waning hours of Friday, April 10, 2020. The Oregon, the 2nd boat in the block IV series, was christened on October 5, 2019. The Oregon will be the fourth naval vessel to bear the name of the 33rd state. (Sean D.

It’s always best to wait around after a sunset. You might miss some great colors. It also helps when you have a great company with you

Last year I wrote a story about the architecture of the Noank Historic District, which is actually a pretty interesting topic (for instance, I learned that historians think the distinctive decorative elements on homes around the village, which often use maritime motifs, might be due to Noank’s woodworkers having been employed in local shipyards. Cool, right?) Anyway, while I was taking the photos that would accompany the article, I was reminded that ephemeral little details are just as important as more permanent structures in making villages like Noank perfectly picturesque travel destinations. One of the little details I thought about at the time was this flower display. So when I was wandering around Noank a few weeks ago, I was glad to see it’s back again, looking as cute as ever🌸🌿🌼🪴🌹 #thesizeofconnecticut ...

Bluff Point State Park is the perfect place for a nice long walk with beautiful scenery and easy access.

Today, We walked full loop which is around 4 mile from and to Picnic area.

🌊🐕🌊🐕🌊🐕🌊🐕

Bluff Point State Park is the last remaining significant piece of undeveloped land along the Connecticut coastline. It’s about a 2 mile walk to get to the beach but it’s definitely worth the trip.

🌊🐕🌊🐕🌊🐕🌊🐕🌊🐕

Dogs on a leash are allowed on the trail. No dogs on beach from April to August because of nesting birds. And as it’s September, I enjoyed on beach today 😉
More photos and full YouTube video coming out soon 😜

About Yesterday Adventure:

We found these two sailboats ⛵️ that were blown ashore on a beach at #bluffpointstatepark and Coastal Reserve during a storm last October remain abandoned months later.

The vessels, named Waypoint and Motivation.. What beautiful names specifically if you need some #mondaymotivation 😍

🚤🐕🌊🚤🐕🌊🚤🐕🌊🚤

This park offers so much for someone who is a little active... trails/paths for running, walking, hiking, dog walking, and biking. There are several miles of trails through the woods. This park is on a peninsula so some of the paths skirt the water making it a very pretty area. There is also a couple places to launch kayaks, canoes, paddle-boards and of course The Beach!!

It’s officially been a decade of living in New England! I moved to Groton, CT this month 10 years ago not expecting it to be permanent. I thought we would eventually go back to Rochester, NY where I had been/near my hometown. Only to fall in love with New England and now I’m never leaving! ⚓️💙🌊🌾⛵️ ...

Last night’s 99% Worm Moon, in composite form! I snagged my foreground, some stars and the moon! Headed into post production with a bit of fantasy in mind! 👽🤩

Met up with the extremely talented ryanzipp at this infamous location last night. As sunset came and went, we had the place to ourselves! Near perfect conditions for our excursion, love when that happens!
