    Today, Better-Half and I took a trip down to the Mystic Aquarium (Its where the guy that found Titanic hangs out). It was a good time and real cheap.
    BUT.....
    Just so happens, that on the way home, and not far off the highway was....
    Connecticut Valley Railroad(or the Essex Steam Train)

    We had gotten there just a couple of minutes late, so we missed the train. With an hour run, and 95 degree temps, we weren't waiting.
    So I took a pic of a static steam instead...

    I was beat. With all the walking at the aquarium, the heat and humidity and the driving. I took a nap.
    Better-Half took a pic of me sleeping.
    More pics of our "daycation" soon.
