Lighthouse Cruising

You don’t have to be a lighthouse fanatic to love this “Lights and Sights” Lighthouse Cruise!! The high-speed Sea Jet Cruise lasts 2 hours past 8 lighthouses, a few mansions, and a fort! The tour guide shares interesting facts and they slow down at each lighthouse so you can take close-up pics! You can sit outside or inside and they serve snacks and drinks ( mmm…Bloody Marys)!  By the way, there’s an excellent gift shop on board, too!

         Cruises leave from Cross Sound Ferry in New London…

Prices:  adult= $30 and Child=$15


Autumn = Clydes Cider Mill

      Tucked away in Old Mystic lies the only steam-powered apple cider mill in the country! B.F. Clyde started making cider in 1881 and the family continues the tradition today!! Clydes is open everyday September to December. The lines can be long … so order alot!

My favorite: warm apple turnover and  hot mulled cider!


Crazy About Coral !!

I seem to gravitate to bright orange and pink corals!! They can uplift a room as an accent wall, pillow, or even flowers! I used Rust-oleum 2x Spray Paint (in Coral Gloss)  to transform my outside bench! Can’t live without coral !!
