Tree Swallow Sunset Cruise with Florence Griswold Museum

Thursday, September 10

 

Enjoy a special sunset cruise on the pristine Connecticut River where hundreds of thousands Tree Swallows gather each fall. After spending the day miles away, the swallows return each night to sleep in the reeds. They gather at sunset and perform aerial ballets forming an amazing display of art, coordination and cooperation! Enjoy perfect views from our ship’s open decks on our 3-hour sunset cruise. The cruise is primarily about the Tree Swallows, however, there is so much to see while cruising along the river! Many birds are migrating through the area at this time including Bald Eagles and Great Egrets. The on-board Naturalist will educate us on the Tree Swallow phenomenon and all the other wildlife we see. Don’t forget your camera and binoculars (or borrow a pair from the cruise)! Before our cruise, we will explore the Florence Griswold House & Museum. During the early 20th century, the Lyme Art Colony in Miss Griswold’s boarding house became America’s most famous summer art colony, playing a pivotal role in fostering American Impressionism. Today, the museum tells a story of art & history and is noted for its collection of American Impressionist paintings. Enjoy a one-hour docent guided tour of the current exhibitions, collections and of the historic Griswold House. Take time to stroll the museum’s beautiful gardens and some free time in downtown Essex for an early dinner on your own.
