Rob has been bugging me to post about our month-ago weekend in the Mystic area, enough that I’ve been tempted to hand him my Macbook and tell him to have at it. ALL RIGHT, ALREADY.
Mystic is our all-time favorite in-state vacation destination. It’s less than 90 minutes from our home, but feels like so much more of an escape, with its waterfront beauty and relaxed vibe. We try to make a weekend of it every year, even when we have other trips planned.
Our trip, in pictures:
Bobby Blue Burger at Bobby's Burger Palace, Mohegan Sun
Tasting wines and ciders at Holmberg Orchards, Gales Ferry
Ledyard House Rose at Maugle Sierra Vineyards
East Coast oysters at Oyster Club, Mystic
Bacon-heavy quahog chowder at Oyster Club, Mystic
Big eye tuna crudo, black trumpet mushrooms, olive oil and lemon at Oyster Club, Mystic
Roasted tomatoes with whipped ricotta, lardo and fresh basil, Oyster Club
Slow roasted veal with bacon creamed red and white cippolini onions, carrots, sage and wild mushrooms at Oyster Club
Pancake sandwich at Kitchen Little, Mystic: ham, eggs and cheese between 2 buttermilk pancakes
Oysters at Dog Watch Cafe, Stonington
Fried wholebelly clams at Dog Watch Cafe, Stonington
Lobster salad roll at Dog Watch Cafe, Stonington
As a bonus, a pic of my November story about Oyster Club in Mystic (I’d vowed to return in the summer; made good on my promise, wasn’t disappointed.)
Until next time, Mystic.
