Almost every month I’ve found myself in Mystic recently and I’m not complaining. The holiday season makes this little town that much more magical. Coors and I met up for a stroll through the village for some last minute gifts then grabbed dinner at our favorite restaurant, The Daniel Packer Inne. I can’t believe that we are only a few days away from Christmas. I’m not anywhere near finished with shopping and I have a whole lot of baking and travel ahead of me in the next few days. While I love the holidays it always feels like a rush and that I never get to enjoy all the fun things going on. Getting a chance to stroll through the village and hang out with a good friend was a nice break.
This year we were finally able to get tickets to Mystic Seaport’s Lantern Light Tour before they sold out thanks to Coors’s mom. We had such a great time at the Halloween Tour that I’ve been looking forward to the Christmas one since. Our tour was late, but we lucked out getting the best guide, Fritz. It was a night filled with horse drawn carriage rides, climbing aboard hundred year old vessels, homemade gingerbread cookies and dancing to fiddles with a “prince” and giant mice. Once you get past the entrance to the seaport village phone/cameras are prohibited. Let me say that even if I could share pictures or went on and on writing nothing could do justice to the amount of fun and magic experienced that night.
Hope you’re all enjoying the holidays as much as I am! What holiday activities have you been doing? Any good day trip suggestions?
