Autumn at Wethersfield Cove

October 14, 2013

A funny thing happened on the way to the car show….

I made plans to go to a car show in Wethersfield yesterday, and then decided to get up early and try for some shots at Wethersfield Cove.   As it turned out, I had a great day of taking pictures there, in Old Wethersfield, and finally at the car show. So I expect to have a lot to post about over the coming week or so.

Wethersfield, CT is south of Hartford and has a lot of history associated with it (more on that later).  Wethersfield Cove is an inlet along the Connecticut River that was used as a public landing place and commercial location. The first ship build in Connecticut, the Tryall, was launched here in 1649 (all this according to a sign conveniently placed by the town). The Cove served in its commercial capacity into the 1830’s. Since then, highway projects and dredging have narrowed the entrance. Today it is used for recreational use for fishing, launching of pleasure boats, and general park use.
