Arrival in New HavenWe had a bit of a shock when we arrived in New Haven, since it started snowing! While the day hadn't stated out that way, it did start to snow around the city premise. Luckily for us, the snow wouldn't catch on or turn to ice (we had some driving ahead), but it ruined our exploration of New Haven completely since it was ice cold outside. We did have umbrellas but with the camera gear and the rest of our things moving around was very hard. We found a great coffee shop filled with students on their laptops.
Frank Pepe's PizzaThe most incredible pizza (in life) was eaten by us in New Haven's Italian district, namely in the restaurant called Frank Pepe's Pizza. Each of us had one pizza and we ordered 4 different ones. They only serve 6 kinds of pizza but each one is better then the next. This comes highly recommended. While we were there people were just buzzing in and out, taking pizzas home. The restaurant is filled with people, but waiting for a spot doesn't take long. They also serve a signature Tomato Pie, which we didn't try.
MysticNext stop was the town of Mystic. This is a quintessential New England town with a church, main street, little shops, cafes and a amazing draw bridge. We stopped for some ice cream here, and took a stroll along main street, until heading out for Rhode Island.
Nightfall in NarragansetWe arrived in Narraganset after night fall, so we didn't really see much of it, until the next morning. We booked our stay in the "Atlantic House" hotel which is located right next to the Atlantic Ocean. Strong winds from the ocean swirled up the fresh salty sea water into the air. It was all very dramatic looking, especially the waves of the ocean. I couldn't just stay in our room, I had to go out and explore the town at night. Selma and I bravely headed out into the night. Though wet and windy it wasn't too cold. The sight of the ocean at night only lit up by surrounding houses was amazing.
A Sunny MorningThe next morning was luckily sunny and the ocean calmed down. We could truly enjoy the town. It's very beautiful with great houses dotted along the coast line. The morning stroll was filled with kind people, cute dogs being walked, and sunny seascapes.
Only one more post before we arrive to the last city of our journey which was Boston. The next post will be devoted to the Cliff Walk in Newport and America's Hometown of Plymouth with its amazingly rich history. I hope you'll enjoy these last few posts from New England.
