Stonington, CT

I apologize for not posting yesterday- I came down with a terrible flu last night, and I've only just begun to gain some strength back.
I'm still very much under the weather, but I thought I'd share with you some photos of my trip to Stonington a couple of years ago (I'll save my Mystic photos for another day♥)

Enjoy!

On the Orient Point ferry to New London

The New London Lighthouse (supposedly haunted!)

Views of Stonington, CT:

Center of town








Fireplace in our room

Cute pillows on the daybed

The beautiful hearth

The dining room

The backyard... so pretty!


Chicken coop in the backyard... fresh eggs every morning!


An old millstone I found on the property

The porch

The charming little barn where the innkeepers lived

The B&B at night

Sunset in Stonington


A peculiar skeleton of a building we found one evening

Old cemetery near the water

Noah's, where we had dinner one night

And Skippers Dock, where we lunched our first day :)

The following links are videos I shot one evening in front of our B&B...
I kept hearing the most unusual bird chirps that I couldn't resist recording:



Don't they sound beautiful?

----------

I hope everyone is feeling much better than I am!
Off to drink some chicken soup now
and rest a little longer

  3. Stonington was lovely. You didn't post any pics of the Road Church! That is a wonderful memory of mine. We have to go there again.

  9. Beautiful images! I love the lighthouse and ferry photos. I visited Stonington about 10 years ago and loved it. Such a beautiful and classic New England town.

    Hope you feel better soon!

  12. Erin, you took some beautiful pictures! I listened to the videos and I've heard those birds sing at night, too, but don't know what they are. Thank you for sharing these and hope the flu is long gone for you.
