The schooner, Mary E., sets sail three times a day from the Steamboat Dock at the CT River Museum. We hopped aboard with a picnic basket full of hors d’oeuvres and a bottle of wine for the sunset cruise. Two hours, a bald eagle sighting and one lovely sunset later, we were (sort of) ready to return to real life.Three sailings a day: 1:30, 3:30 and 6 pm. Call for reservations. 860 7676 8269
