Nature is our business…
….and business is good!
On the River: We finally had a weekend generally rain free, so we got both our Saturday and Sunday cruises off. Yay! Saturday, an evening Full Moon Sunset Cruise and we had both a sunset and the FULL Flower Full Moon. Gorgeous! Sunday, the Bird-A-Thon Cruise went off as scheduled. We had fun searching for birds, finding 21 species. Looking ahead, Memorial Day Weekend is coming up and our Spring Selden Island Circumnavigation Cruise will be heading out at 10:00am on June 2. The Yellow Flag Iris should be in full bloom or very close to. Wildlife: UPDATE: The East Haddam Swing Bridge definitely has chicks!!! Other Osprey nests soon to be hatching and we spied two very large eaglets in the Bald Eagle’s nest, Clarkhurst in Haddam, and saw both adults at the nest at Twelve Mile Island in Deep River, assuming there are chick(s) in that nest. We did not make it far enough down river to see the Hamburg Cove nest, so, not sure what’s going on there. We believe there is at least one chick though. Goodspeed did not lay eggs. Too much drama with three mature Bald Eagles in the area.
Other stuff: NOTE: Cruises are now be departing from our home berth at Eagle Landing State Park in HADDAM, through October. RiverQuest is back at the dock, still some painting to do when we are not cruising. Capt Mark did get most of the flooring done and some other stuff. Adventure will be back to Eagle Landing State Park next week.
