Fort Trumbull in New London, Connecticut

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.
