Adventures Along the Seafarer's Trail!

Note from Lisa:

Every one is back on the streets of Mystic with the warm weather. Sharon Merriman carries her aging pal Harley on her runs now, but says he was once quite the boater having had his four paws on several islands in the Long Island Sound.  

Want to dine while watching the boaters go by? Here is a handy list of all the restaurants with water views. But if you'd rather watch deep dives on the ocean floor with my friend Melissa, click on Deep Sea TV

Want to see airplanes fly around your meal? Grab a bite at the new restaurant at Groton-New London Airport. This link to the Beacon Bar & Grill has a great video of a large plane landing right in front of a table!

Sunday is the 150th anniversary of President Lincoln's memorial service at Union Baptist Church (that large one hanging off a cliff overlooking the Mystic River). To honor the occasion, the Church is hosting a dramatic reading of Civil War love letters, era music, and eye-witness accounts of Lincoln's assassination and death on Sunday, April 19, 4pm. I'll see you there!
