how about some lobsta?

Here we are, the last hoorah of summer. We decided to take advantage of the amazing weather and the day off, and visit a couple of little Connecticut towns. Our first stop was a town called Chester which is adorable and small and has cute shops and beautiful homes. We decided to head out to Abbott's on the shoreline for some fresh fresh super fresh lobster. Our friend Ruth had never ever even tried lobster. Crazy right? But she is southern, so we'll give her the benefit of the doubt. Not all of us can be lucky enough to grow up with lobstermen uncles.

So on to Abbott's where we dined and relaxed, and apparently took most of the photos: Mmm, lobster, too bad I couldn't partake, well, not in a whole one anyway.


And then here's me wishing I could eat the whole delicious beast, and here's Ruth wishing she had a more normal friend:


And of course, here's Ruth indicating her first time with the lobsta, and Justin indicating that he's always number one:


And here's a quick shot off of Lookout Point in Stonington. None of us had ever been to Stonington before, so we gave it a shot. It's right next to Mystic, but it was a lot smaller, more relaxed and less touristy. Everyone was so friendly and welcoming and I personally think it would be a great area to get a summer rental. Being so close to Mystic, there would always be things to do fo' the bebe, and we could just chill on the beach on days we didn't want to mingle.


Anyway, here's to a great summer weekend, hoorah!, goodbye, and thanks for everything.

i love that last pic. stonington is great, we stayed there (or north stonington, can't remember) when we went to RI last summer. much cheaper because the hotel catered to the casino-crowd. lots of old people and shuttles to the casino, but we liked the cheap price and the free breakfast. there's another mystic pizza in stonington, too, and it was just as good as the one in mystic, without all the crowds. :)

Also if you get a boat you can take the ocean to watch hill and avoid beach traffic and parking. Ah summer in ri/ct how I miss thee!
