I know I said I’m headed to New York soon and that’s true, but we still have a couple days left in Connecticut, so I decided to share a little bit about my time here (wedding pictures will be coming eventually, I promise). I personally love Connecticut because, at least from what I’ve seen of it (We’ve stayed mostly in the New London area), it reminds me a lot of a smaller and slightly more nautical version of my home in the Northwest. It’s pretty relaxed and far less preppy than I expected. Oh, and everyone just has a West Coast accent, which in my opinion, is non existent. Haha. Anyways, here’s a look at Mystic:
For some reason, my parents were very excited to have us pose in front of the Mystic Pizza sign. I think it was featured in an old movie or something. Haha. As far as my outfit goes, I was feeling comfy and casual, so I threw on some fun sunflower shorts, a croptop, sandals, round sunnies, and a crossbody bag.
This is what Mystic Pizza looks like! I couldn’t resist the temptation of the slice of the day which was spaghetti and meatball. That might sound disgusting, but it was actually sooo good– basically the equivalent of eating spaghetti with a slice of cheesy garlic bread.
Then we headed to Mystic Drawbridge Ice Cream which was right next to the drawbridge (how surprising). They claimed to have the best ice cream in the New England area. It was good and all, but I definitely prefer homemade ice cream!
Of course, I had to take one of those typical “I’m eating ice cream pictures”. Pardon my awkward thumb– I was really nervous that I would drop it into the water, so I was gripping the cone pretty tight. Haha.
Then we cruised around the bridge and dock for a bit. Steamboat Inn is actually where the bride and bridesmaids got ready for the wedding. It’s pretty cool because you can just dock your boat right at the Inn (which is what Jenna’s dad did). It’s also way prettier when a thunderstorm isn’t about to hit!
Hope you’re all having fun on your summer vacays or stay-cations, and are taking a bunch of pictures!
