Took a side trip on the way home. We took a short COLD walk on the CT river. The sun was nice .. the river was icy. The ice was breaking up in some spots and cracking and moving .. when it hit the rocks it sounded like music, like wind chimes. We saw all kinds of cool birds .. I will post the faraway but still cool shots here too. It was so great to get out and see some incredibly beautiful scenes. It was necessary for me to be reminded that there are parts of winter that I love and would be unhappy to miss!
