Where Have I Been?

I haven't been posting anything all week.  It's because I went away to Mystic, Connecticut to visit family and then I had family come visit us.  So it's been a whirlwind fun and busy week.  Mystic is such a beautiful seaside town, with a harbor full of sailboats.  I could totally live here!
We were walking around town and the drawbridge was going up to let boats through.
I love this old anchor in the middle of town!  It's beautiful!
You can't go to the New England area and not get Clam Chowder.  Yum.
There were a lot of great flower garden beds all throughout town.  I just love the colors.
We also had time to go to Mystic Aquarium where we saw this. A Lion Fish!  Pretty cool.
When we returned, it was July 4th.  My brother's family was visiting us and my nephew helped me pick these veggies.
And a whole bowl of wild blackberries.  What a treat!  Hope you all had a great 4th of July week!


  1. You were missed! It looks like you had a nice time in CT and over the holiday.

  2. How ironic! I used to live there when I was a kid and my parents were there last weekend! Pretty photos :)

  3. How beautiful; if I could live somewhere else, New England area would be a top choice!

    I was wondering where you were ;)

  4. Sounds like you had a wonderful time! Those clams are huge! Love your variety of harvests :)

  5. I'm glad you got to do some traveling. Living that close to the ocean, it's good to go see it from time to time. It sounds like you had a good Fourth. We had family over, and had a good time, too. I was in the house with kids most of the evening, which was fine with me.

  6. Wild blackberries-now that's a fine homecoming! Hope they tasted delicious!

  7. Welcome home! Looks like a fun time. I went to Mystic years ago and would love to go back!

  8. Sounds like a beautiful place!


We love to hear from you. Thanks for leaving a comment!
