Day 2 of our Niantic trip started out with some coffee and a sunrise. I can't remember which beach this was, but it was a park close to where we stayed and it was absolutely gorgeous! It was chillier that morning, so we had on winter coats, hats and gloves.
We were the only people there. :)
Happy 7 years to us!
After the beach, we headed back to our room to get ready for breakfast. Here's the view of the marina from our room.
Then we drove over to Mystic Seaport to spend the morning.
Anywho..here are some interior shots.
Cramped sleeping arrangements.
We walked around and inside many of the old buildings and it's really cool to so how things looked and the way people lived in an old seaport village. Life was so different.
After Mystic Seaport, we found this quaint, family-owned cider house so we stopped in for some tastings and donuts.
For lunch, we drove over the the beautiful little seaside village of Stonington and ate at this really cute place called The Dog Watch Cafe.
Then over to Watch Hill to walk among the seaside mansions. (How do people afford them??)
Rainbows in the waves.
After more exploring and beach combing, we came back to Niantic to get ready for dinner and a night walk. The little town of Niantic is very cute and charming!
One of the places I really wanted to stop by was The Book Barn. I loved it! It's an indoor and outdoor store with thousands of used books.
I could've spent hours here.
They even had a little trail decorated for Halloween.
After the Book Barn, we stopped at a cozy little candy/chocolate shop. It was so adorable inside.
There was even a cute little 50's style diner in the back.
I can't remember the place we went to for dinner, but it was good, lol.
Heading back to the Inn for the night, I couldn't resist taking a few more photos of the marina as I just loved looking at this scene.
I really do love a well-lit dock in New England at night.
Looking back at the Inn, our room was on the top middle (with the lights off as we hadn't gone back in yet). :)
In the morning, before we left, we had another coffee/sunrise session, but this time we were back on the Niantic Boardwalk.
What a gorgeous, beautiful trip we had. It was so nice to spend time with my husband to celebrate our anniversary. It's hard to believe it was a year ago!
I hope you guys have a nice weekend. It's supposed to snow here on Sunday!
