Nature is our business…
….and business is good!
On the River: Now onto SPRING!! Yay rah rah!!! The East Haddam Swing Bridge Osprey couple is back!! One appeared on Thursday evening, March 28, the second on Friday! They have been happily sitting together at the nest, chattering away. The stories they have to tell to each other! We have also seen one (maybe both) scouring the area for sticks for their “nestorations”. NOTE: Cruises will now be departing from our home berth at Eagle Landing State Park in HADDAM, April 19 though October. Nice to be home, although we did have a wonderful time this Winter with the Connecticut River Museum. On our SPRING Osprey/Eagle Cruises, starting April 19 from Haddam, we will go by three Bald Eagle nesting territories, on two of the nests (Twelve Mile Island and Hamburg Cove), egg(s) are being incubated. The Goodspeed nest looks like, no egg. Too much drama with three mature Bald Eagles in the area. We will still be searching for some of our winter visitors, there may still be some ducks and hawks who have not headed north yet AND seals!!! And, we will definitely see our Connecticut Osprey home from their southern wintering grounds. So, don’t feel you have been left out, still lots to see on this beautiful Connecticut River before the leaves come out and summer starts.
Other stuff: RiverQuest is out of the water at Chester Point Marina for more “spiffing” up! We will be installing a new steering system, some new flooring, some painting and general maintenance. A lot of work to be done! She will be back in the water April 17-ish for the start of our Osprey/Eagle Cruises. We will be looking forward to cruising the river again! Adventure is also on the hard at Chester Point Marina, getting spiffed up. Cathy has most of the 2019 Special and Regular Cruises on the calendar, available for booking. We always like to offer new Special Cruises. If you have any ideas, please email us.
