Mystic Seaport
April 2007
While I was in Connecticut visiting Chrissy we took a trip to historic Mystic Seaport. It's the first time I've been there since I was a kid. We also stopped in Groton, CT and had a delicious dinner at the very popular Paul's Pasta Shop. The last place we went before heading home was Essex which is another historic town.

The Mystic Drawbridge. If it looks familiar, you probably saw the movie Mystic Pizza.
Speaking of Mystic Pizza, here's the place that inspired the movie
51 Paul's Pasta 52 Essex CT Sign
When I think of Groton, Connecticut, the only thing I usually think of is Subase New London. However, now I also think of the great meal we had at Paul's Pasta.
We also stopped in Essex, CT. It's another one of the 1,000 Places to Before You Die.
