Sunday Funday in Mystic, CT
There’s something special about summer resort towns in the off-season. One of my favorite ways to get through winter is to take advantage of a warmish day (mid-40s counts in New England) and visit a locale I associate with summer. I spent a few hours in Mystic, CT today, shopping the main drag and scarfing down nachos and beer in a yachtie bar. I’m looking forward to going back in spring and spending some time at Mystic Seaport, the town’s living history museum. Think Sturbridge Village, Plimoth Plantation, etc. For the history nerds among you Mystic Seaport blows those others out of the water. Check out the giant counterweights on the drawbridge….it’s a bit freaky walking underneath them. We wanted to have a bite at the upstairs bar at S&P Oyster Company but they were closed for a private party. We wandered into Ancient Mariner and were pretty happy. Standard bar food but the nachos rocked.
