Winter Tea at The Ocean House!


English Tea is a wonderful tradition that reminds us to slow down from our hectic schedules and enjoy the moment. Or in this case,

the view!

       Tea at the Ocean House in Watch Hill, Rhode Island is served in the Living Room with cozy couches, a harpist, and fireplace aglow.  My good friend, Robin and I, opted for Royal Tea which includes a glass of champagne. Royal indeed!!

After the bubbly, we ordered a pot of Himalayan Garden and a pot of Earl Gray. A parade of sweet and savory delights followed! Scones, tea sandwiches, and tiny desserts created with such detail that they seemed fake!  Everything was beyond delicious and would make a unique gift for anyone special to you!

We sat in our Ocean House “Living Room” for hours and then ventured outside onto the veranda.   A storm front rolled through . . . illuminating the icy Atlantic.

Ocean House Tea is served on weekends from 3 to 5pm                      $24  or  $38  with the bubbly

Shiver me timbers!!  Pirates from other lands invaded Mystic again this year in October! They keep coming back! Luckily, they were captured and sent out to sea! Scallywags!! The Pirates attacked Mystic by ship … shooting cannons, sword fightin’, and swashbucklin’ in search of treasured Mystic booty!  Aaaarrrggg!


Mystical MerFairie Party

       The glimmer of a scale, the flick of a tail, the                                                                                                    shadow of a fin . . .

                                                        it’s a MerFairie!!
