Mystic – Big-Time Quaint, And That's A Good Thing



#boating #trawler #longislandsound #Connecticut #Mystic

The great boating conditions continued as we motored our way to our easternmost destination: Mystic, CT. As this video title says, it has New England charm and quaintness in abundance, and we enjoyed ourselves tremendously. It has cute shops, museums, exhibits, some okay restaurants, and lots and lots of people. You have been warned.

One of the things we learned is the good people of Connecticut consider themselves to be New Englanders rather than Northeasterners. Even though the state is connected to New York on its eastern border, there is most definitely a different feel or vibe to it. I don't quite know what the differences are, at least when they are so close together, but they hang onto them fiercely.


We did rent a car and took a side trip. One of season objectives was to visit the United States Coast Guard Academy in New London, CT. As recreational boaters we're big supporters of all the Coasties. Furthermore, at the recommendation of many, we ate lunch at Captain Scott's Lobster Dock, also in New London. I guess this is as authentic New England chow as you can get, and it was good!

Our visit was made even better by getting better acquainted with Bob and Lynda of the vessel Erika Lynn. They were wonderful hosts and we look forward to being with them again sometime in the future.
