Picture Postcard Town and a Peek

10.06.2012

This morning I shared the beautiful homes around Mystic and here are some picturesque shots around the water in Mystic, Ct. This New England town was like a picture postcard. I wish we had time to just sit and relax and enjoy the scenery, but we were squeezing in a lot to see in four days.



 There was a $24 charge apiece if we wanted to walk around inside the fenced off area and we opted not to.

 So instead I just grabbed some shots from over the fence.











Here is a peek at something that had to come home with me. More to come tomorrow.

Enjoy the rest of the weekend.

  1. Hi Kim, Girl I love your photos of Mystic. I haven't been there but so love Maine with it's similar feel. I think there is a dog woven into the sisal-it will be interesting to see-whatever it is, it looks incredible! Have a great weekend.

  6. Beautiful! Looks like the weather was nice in Mystic. Your pillow (assuming that it's a pillow and not a rug) looks a bit like Claire Murray. Can't wait to hear all about it. xo

  9. Hi Kim...didn't you just love it up there....and I know you went to Martha's Vineyard also....I would live there in a minute if it wasn't for ice cold weather in the winter and ridiculous taxes.....But I sure wish we had scenery like that down here in Georgia.....Did you go to Edgartown an all those fabulous shops...we love it there...

  10. Mystic Seaport was one of the highlights of our tour a couple of years ago. Fortunately for us, the price of touring inside the village & it was so very interesting. You got some great photos of the lovely homes. I just fell in love with the white clapboard houses with black shutters -- so not a style for the desert, however! So glad you had a great time.

  15. I am betting that is a dog pillow??? The town looks beautiful. How was the weather? Warm or cool already? I have never been to New England and am dying to get up there.

  17. The overcast pictures were almost more of what I expected, this time of year, in the northeast. I guess it's anything goes, in the fall! Very pretty! I liked the fence in the photograph too! Lots of colorful, painted wood, too! :)

  19. Oh that is gorgeous! My mother always talked of Mystic from when they lived in CT while my dad was stationed in the Coast Guard. Now I see why she loved it so! And I see a dog! I know it is going to be great!
