Our last Connecticut outing was riding the Steam Train & Steam Boat out of Essex, CT! We had hoped to catch Connecticut at it's peak color with our last weekend. Unfortunately, it seemed a week to early... So we didn't get to see much color change. I just don't think it is our year for fall foliage greatness!
Here we are bundled up for photo ops! Isn't Maggie cute with you UCONN hat! I am not looking the best in this shot!

This was a fun little day trip! And a welcome break from the packing that has taken up my time as we prepare to leave back to Indiana.
