Remember the movie Mystic Pizza? It was Julia Robert’s first big role, and a coming of age movie about 3 teenagers who work at a pizza parlor in Mystic, Connecticut. Well, unbeknownst to us, Mystic, CT is quite a scenic little town.
We left Wallkill after lunch, making our way along the Connecticut coast. A helpful lady had suggested earlier in the day that we spend the night in Mystic, and we’re glad we did. It’s a picturesque town on the sea, full of little boutiques, fresh seafood, and a bit of history. We checked in to The Whalers Inn, and set out for a stroll through the town. The ocean air was brisk; calming and energizing all at once.
It was our last evening as our gang of 5, and it was just as fun as all the nights preceding it. We had a wonderful dinner and did a second chocolate tasting; again Lindt was champion. I fell asleep that night – mid-conversation, fully clothed, on top of the covers – with everyone in the room, surrounded by love and friendship and family. It was just right.
