I spent a fun day in Mystic, Connecticut with my friends Meredith and Beth and Beth's teenage daughter Maeve at the end of June. It was a fun way to start the summer!
We went to a nice outdoor shopping village called Olde Mistick Village and (stating the obvious) we shopped and ate lunch.
I like Christmas shops, and this one didn't disappoint!
Then we went to the Mystic Seaport Museum, which is a great collection of museums, buildings, and ships. It's like a recreation of a historic village ("living history museum" is the term), like Old Sturbridge Village and Plimoth Plantation.
