Touring Connecticut // Two
Having both worked previously for the Connecticut Department of Tourism, we are well aware that Mystic is the most popular tourist destination in the state, and it very well deserves that title. We spent much of our Saturday morning wandering the picturesque downtown, grabbing coffees, stopping in shops and walking the docks along the Mystic River, watching the bridge go up to let sailboats pass through. The weather was perfect - a little bit warmer than a typical fall day in Connecticut and full of sunshine, which made the drive north through the "quiet corner" of the state truly a treat. It was one of those drives with the windows down, blue sky above you, sunglasses on, music loud and no worries. I cherish those.
