With binoculars in hand, I boarded the early morning bird watching safari in the Norwalk, CT as a kick start to the weekend. It was a no frills catamaran ride that felt so right for an ecoadventure.

The Long Island Sound was a peaceful haven where I discovered a gentle orchestra of sights, sounds and exciting wildlife moments.

The two hour break with Naturalist guides was a grand “Welcome to the weekend!”. Returning before noon meant a full day ahead to go about the “needful Saturday stuff", in a restorative, carefree state of mind.
