Connecticut River Museum, 67 Main Street, Essex, CT
Can you get there from here? This old saying really means something when you consider getting across the mighty Connecticut without the bridges we have today! There are approximately 58 vehicle bridges currently spanning the Connecticut River and ten were chosen as representative examples for the Connecticut River Museum's 2013 exhibit 'Crossing the Connecticut: Bridges of the Connecticut River'. The exhibit features several different styles of bridge design and explores how people's ideas of what bridges should look like and how they reflect how their communities have changed over time. The exhibit features many objects and images from the Museum's collections as well as paintings, original toll signs, documents and other artifacts on loan from other institutions. Through October 20.

The Lyman Allyn Art Museum, 625 Williams Street, New London, CT
Fascinated by the anatomy and movement of living creatures, Kitty Wales creates sculpture and installation art based on her direct observations of animals. She has traveled to the Scottish Hebrides to study wild goats, the Spanish Pyrenees to observe bearded vultures, and the Caribbean to document reef sharks in their underwater habitat. As part of a collaboration between the Lyman Allyn Art Museum and the Mystic Aquarium, Wales visited the Aquarium to observe their collection of marine life, taking photographs and preparing sketches that would later fuel her creations in the studio. Inspired by the textural, feathery forms of the lionfish, Wales then set to work envisioning a site-specific installation intended for the Lyman Allyn. Three larger-than-life lionfish sculptures constructed of welded steel, heavy paper, and recycled pencils will transform the gallery into a “deep-sea” environment for visitors of all ages.

The General Stanton Inn and Fleamarket, 4115 Old Post Road, Charlestown,
Some vendors at The General Stanton Inn Fleamarket in Charlestown believe they can tell when it's high tide at the local beaches(the "old-timey" way):when the waves of visitors shopping at the fleamarket suddenly retreat. Those same vendors suggest that at high tide this weekend(12:16 p.m. on Saturday,13th and 1:05 p.m. on Sunday,14th),it will be a good time to come to the Fleamarket and avoid the "sea of shoppers" that tend to flee the beaches and gather at the Fleamarket during the lower tide times (and lower wave times)of day.The General Stanton Inn, one of the oldest,largest and most popular outdoor fleamarkets in the area,is open Saturdays, Sundays and holiday Mondays until Columbus Day. Hours:8a.m.-3p.m.,with early birds encouraged.Call 401-364-8888.FREE.$2.parking fee Sundays only.
