Even though it was VERY cold today, I took Jenny for her usual walk. When we got to the Connecticut River Town Landing, I thought I would snap some photos so that you could see what the river looks like during the Winter.

I am standing in the gazebo at the Town Landing looking out over the river and in the first photo, I am looking South, towards Essex. The chart below indicates where I am standing with a red arrow:

Clearly on my photo you can see that the channel separating Eustasia Island from Deep River is frozen, while the deep water part of the River is unfrozen [thin slightly darker blue line].

In the second photo, I am looking North towards Chester and you can see that the unfrozen channel continues there. Actually, the state uses icebreakers to keep the channel open in Winter. Also in this photo you can just see Gillette Castle off to the left. Just where the branch is covering the photo is the entry to Selden Creek that runs a complete circle back to the river in Essex. Little boats can pass through it and we often do, as it is quite lovely in there. Nearly all of Selden Neck is protected State Land.

Then I snapped a shot of Jenny standing on the ground and realized she was shaking with cold. So I took her right home!

We went to a party at our nephew’s mansion, where I was totally over-dressed! But the party was wonderful! We came home and Jenny was confused as to why I was so dressed up and we snapped a few photos of us together. She DID match my outfit!

HAPPY 2014 to all my devoted readers! [And even the not so devoted ones!]
