Yesterday, after making it off Charles Island with the tide quickly rising, we traveled to the Connecticut Audubon Society Coastal Center in Milford. It's located on an 840 acre salt marsh at the base of the Housatonic River. Inside, among the tanks of little creatures, we found turtles like this jazzy diamondback terrapin, Madagascar hissing cockroaches, and a bearded dragon. A spiral staircase led to the tower. What a peaceful place. With an ocean breeze, a great view of the salt marsh, and relaxing rockers, I could have spent all day there with my binoculars. Across the street was a beach with this long-necked great egret canvassing the waters for dinner.

Tomorrow, I'm making some small revisions and hopefully I'll get moving on a new outline.
