East Haddam is the next town over from where I grew up and the town center is situated on a bluff overlooking the Connecticut River.  The river itself is where my state gets its name, being a local Mohegan word quinetucket meaning ‘beside the long, tidal river’.  It is the largest river in a region known as New England, encompassing the 6 states of Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, New Hampshire, Maine and Vermont.  For those not that familiar with the region, we are a little bigger than Washington state, and larger than our eponymous England.  Small by US standards.  My state itself however is quite compact, 48 of 50 in terms of square area (14,357 sq km, a little bigger than Montenegro, about half the size of Belgium), but 4th in population density.

I enjoy shooting around East Haddam, so there will be more shots of the area in this…
