The Connecticut Coast

The end of summer is always a beautiful time in Connecticut.  Bright blue skies with temperatures in the low 80's.  The nights are made for shorts and Shep shirts.  It really couldn't get any better in my opinion.

This August, we drove up the coast of Connecticut and explored a couple of cute towns we had heard about.  Branford, Stonington, and Noank.  Noank is adorable and most people know it as the pushing off point for Fishers Island.  We arrived just in time to take a quick drive and enjoy dusk and lobster.  After weighing our options between Fords lobster and Abbots in the Rough (an institution from 1947), we went with Fords and we weren't disappointed.  Here are some of the shots I took that night.

Even when we thought the scenery couldn't get prettier, it did

It seems like Connecticut continues to show us so many hidden gems.  We miss the south, but truly couldn't pick a more beautiful area to land.
