Waiting for the Ferry

Chester,   Connecticut

Sometimes a Sunday drive can result in an unexpected moment. On a frigid day in February, we took a ride out toward Essex, CT and the surrounding area. We drove down this one road which dead-ended at the Connecticut River. It turns out that was the ferry terminal that crosses the river to the Gillette Castle on the other side. The light and reflections were absolutely perfect. The sign said that the ferry would reopen in May. I guess we had a long wait.
