Filled the car with gas and was on the road to Mystic, CT. I knew I wanted to walk around the seaport area. I will be back to visit the Mystic Aquarium, Historic Downtown Mystic and more.
I will take the yellow house across the water, please. Any of the houses actually in the area are beautiful and in pristine shape. There is so much architecture and I look forward to spending a few spring days out there with my camera!
The red berries. Seriously this is one of my favorite shots from the weekend! I visited the gift shop before walking along the main street and let me tell you that wall of fudge, I could have easily bought every flavor, but I resisted. They offer free samples; however I was too early.
The globe ornaments were so well crafted and the shop keeper explained it is one the most common items purchased. Travel the world, it's great for the soul.
I found the perfect blanket scarf and picked it up! I haven't stopped wearing it since Monday. I love the oranges and fall colors. Make sure you stop in the gift shop before you head out of town.
Next up I walked along the main road for a while taking in the houses and learning as much as I could about Mystic and the people who lived there. On a nice day I would have walked about 3 miles rather then the 1 I did on Sunday. Here are just a few shots.
Can I move in? The fence, the exterior, and the overall charm of the home makes this a true cottage in Mystic, CT.
This is the view from the Twisters Ice Cream parking lot. A small shop that neighbors Seaview Snack Bar. Both weren't opened and I am so anticipating my next trip up there to try both places.
As I walked back to my car I realized how much history is all around us even in our own hometowns and backyards. I love to explore and hope to do more and share with you guys what I stumble upon. The ride home took about 5 hours and there was really no traffic through CT, NY and NJ.
Also be sure to check out the Mystic Dinner and you can stay locally at the Hyatt Place Mystic or check out Priceline!
Any fun travel plans coming up?
