After Ocean Beach I drove along the shore and found a sign that said Fort Trumbull state park. I parked there and again grabbed my camera. Here are a few shots…
The fort was used mainly to protect New London harbor area from attacks during the British occupation and served as home for Coast guards and navy later on.
It was quite a grey day..perfect setting for a fort protecting Thames river inlet towards the rest of Connecticut!
From the visitors’ center, the river is on the far end
Low angle shot of the sidewall
It was 7:00 PM so I wasn’t to go inside anyway!
They were having an argument over who will cook dinner!
See the video for the audio:
Thames river and the piers and pedestrian walkways
That’s the i 95 over there
the fort as seen from waterside
Battery at Fort Tumbull to protect New London harbor from British attacks!
Low angle shot. Imagine there was a battle and how the canons would have been blazing..
