My husband and I had such a great day out taking photos on the river. Having grown up in Essex, I just love to explore and see how different areas have changed. The good news is not much has changed at all. It's still one of the most quaint towns in Connecticut. When I take photographs for our candle labels, I try and get a good variety but I do find I am able to get some beautiful shots in this town. The photo below is of the Becky Thatcher with passengers eager to see this beautiful resource. I think this shot was taken just south of the swing bridge by the Goodspeed Opera House. The landing field is seen in the background. The Essex Steam Train manages reservations for the Becky Thatcher. Our soy candles are
also available in the Essex Steam Train Gift Shop. We loved customizing the labels with a photo of an old steam train.
