WOWZA… it would be easier to say what we HAVEN’T done in the last few days! Last night we had a fun meet up with our friend Zachary, Oh… and our parent’s friends came to see them too! ??? It is always so nice when friends stop by to see us. ❤️❤️❤️ Then today we headed over to Stonington, Connecticut to do a little sightseeing. We strolled along the super-cute streets and saw an ADORABLE little tiny lighthouse. It was built in 1840 and was used until 1889 when it was replaced by larger beacons on the breakwaters. We just looked at the outside, but the inside is open as a museum and you can climb the steps to the top of the lighthouse! Doggies are not allowed inside for safety reasons. We were getting HOT and wanted to rest for a bit so Mummy suggested lunch at the “Dog Watch Cafe” which was listed as being DOGGIE FRIENDLY. I am going to tell you that it is SEMI- DOGGIE FRIENDLY because of course you have to sit outside on the covered porch…. but our stroller could NOT be on the porch with Mummy and Daddy…. it had to be on the OTHER SIDE of the railing which was on an elevated porch. So our stroller was about 3 feet BELOW where they were dining. We were in the shade and there was no one near us, but still… that is NOT REALLY DOGGIE FRIENDLY. But in their defense, the porch was extremely small and only held about 8 tables so there really wasn’t much room for a stroller… but if you don’t have a stroller and only have a dog on a leash or a dog in a carrying bag… then it has to go ON THE OTHER SIDE OF THE RAIL!!!! So, that is something to consider. But the food was DELICIOUS! Mummy had the Lobster BLT and saved us a few bits of her lobster and Daddy had the fish tacos… then they shared a bowl of really good clam chowder. We also got some ice water for all our trouble. After we left there we headed over to Mystic, Connecticut where we drove down to the seaport and saw this HUGE ANCHOR that weighed 7,500 pounds! It had been on the USS HARTFORD in a war. By now, we were really HOT HOT HOT so Daddy said we needed to cool off… and guess what? He bought some ice cream and let us all have a few licks!!! That really did the trick and we were all very happy after that! It was getting late and Mummy said it was almost time for our dinner so we headed back to our campsite with fun memories of our adventures. ?❤️??
