Connecticut for 10 weeks. Part 1
I thought that I would kind of start back blogging about my life before Spokane. We have spent a month between Eagle, CO and Houston, TX visiting my in-laws. But before that we lived in New Haven, CT for 10 weeks. Now, that was fun!
It was my first time in New England, the closest I've been was to NYC. Both me and Bill were very excited about spending the last part of summer, early fall in New England, and we knew 10 weeks was too little to go everywhere we wanted to visit, so we kind of had to consolidate plans.
Our first day trip was to Mystic. We spent most of the day in Mystic Seaport, where we saw many old ships including the last wooden whaleship in the world;Charles W Morgan. We also watched a demonstration of whaling, from lowering the boat from the big ship to actually pretending to catch a whale, processing it and then taking it back to the ship. Man, did they work hard on that, here is a photo.
From the seaport, we took a taxi boat to downtown mystic, where an art festival was taking place. Lots of beautiful art by New England locals,and good street food, I just had to have a hot dog!
Of course, we could not leave Mystic without stopping at Mystic pizza,where Julia Roberts worked as a waitress in the movie Mystic pizza . That place was crowded!
Before heading back to New Haven, we stopped at the aquarium for a quick visit.
This was our first day trip while in New Haven, more to follow.
