From the Branford House 'front porch' there are beautiful views of the sound. I never tire of watching the parade of vessels and ferries that make their way to the mouth of the Thames River or venture across the sound to the New York territories of Fishers Island and Long Island and the favorite Rhode Island retreat - Block Island. I was only out in the sun for less than an hour but with the reflection off the water and the blowing wind I came away with a colorful sunburn!
It was a beautiful day! Can't you here the foghorns and ringing bells of the buoys?
