06.23.16 Olde Mystic Village, Seaport and Sea View Snack Bar in Mystic, Connecticut

i_love_new_england__32594.1378922315.1280.1280_1Thursday, June 23, 2016 – We left Connecticut this morning on our way to New Hampshire and Maine which means I’m catching up now on what we did this week while in Connecticut.

After touring the USS Nautilus on Monday we went to the Olde Mystic Village.  At the Village you can stroll the beautiful lanes and enjoy shopping in distinctive buildings designed to represent a New England Village of about 1720.  There were picturesque settings of flowers, trees & duck ponds that surround you as you relax and unwind. There are many benches and rest areas to catch your breath, unwind, enjoy the beautiful surroundings and let your mind slip pleasantly back to another era. Roy patiently strolled with me as I shopped and enjoyed all this Village had to offer! Their address is 27 Coogan Blvd, Mystic, Connecticut.

These are for my niece, Dana, who loves nautical decorations.  You would have absolutely loved this particular shop.  So much of the shopping around here is nautical stuff!20160620_151549 20160620_151938 20160620_152334 20160620_153916 20160620_153924Some additional photos I got off the internet.  I’m having glare problems with my photos so a lot of mine did not come out.

Munson’s was a cool shop that made delicious looking chocolates.  We can’t ship chocolates right now (heat… melting)  so we bought some lobster shaped gummis for our granddaughter Kallie!

We’ve heard about Lobster Rolls from some of our friends and found this to be one of the top places in the area for delicious lobster rolls.

Where we eat chicken salad in Louisiana, they eat this similar food with lobster instead of chicken.  And it is served on a nicely toasted bun that looks like a hot dog bun but tastes way better!  They served it with french fries and a soft drink for $20 each.  A bit pricey for a snack shack but like I said it was a full blown meal and was quite delicious.

Not only was the lobster roll delicious but we had the company of a very friendly seagull as we ate our lobster rolls by the sea!

I love cemeteries, Roy does not, so I capture shots when I can.  This one was very cool!

02-newport-jury-2006-award-gdapThis wrapped up a beautiful day of exploring in Connecticut.  On Wednesday we went into Rhode Island to the incredible Ocean town of Newport.  So many amazing photo opportunities that it will take me over night tonight to go through them all!

My new Kindle Paperwhite was waiting for me at the Post Office in Mystic this morning (Wednesday) so I’ll be back to my avid Kindle reading self!  After crunching my regular Kindle Paperwhite, I’ve been reading on my Samsung phone for the last two weeks until we could get to a place where I could have the new one delivered General Delivery.

We’re hoping our new extra phone batteries reach us at our next stop in New Hampshire so we’ll be set for more photos in the next few weeks in New Hampshire, Maine, Vermont, New York, Philadelphia and Massachusetts. Can you imagine how much my phone/camera batteries are put through with all the photos we take and how much we depend on the GPS when we’re on the road.

I truly love New England.  It is everything I thought it might be.  If I could move my family to Connecticut and could afford to live here I would!

Ya’ll come back now, ya’ hear!!
