New England, It's a Wrap!

This is a hodge podge post - 
all the wonderful moments from our trip north that were not included in previous posts.

We went to Abbot's, of course - it was our first stop!
It was a little windy, but it was also a beautiful day to eat outdoors, on the Mystic River.
We go to Abbott's every time we visit the area.
You may remember me sharing pictures of the food at Abbott's in this post from earlier this year.

This is the view, you dine on paper plates with plastic silverware at picnic tables outdoors.
The food is amazing!

After we ate we found a small park to sit and enjoy the view.

I found this sweet duck I could not identify.

I couldn't resist this...we picked up potatoes and tomatoes to bring home.

We had one meal at S & P Oyster Co.

We had this spinach dip with chips as an appetizer, it was the best I have ever eaten.
Dinner was really good as well.

We drove home over the newly constructed and newly opened Tappan Zee Bridge


  1. I wouldn't mind a view like that at a restaurant

  2. Hello, I am sure the lobster there was delicious. The views are beautiful too. You are looking very tan! Great photos, thanks for sharing your trip! Enjoy your day!

  3. What a great trip, Debbie. The view, the food, that cute little duck. It all was so good. And, I see they got that Tappen Zee Bridge open. They were still working on it when I was there last. My daughter lives in Rye so I know that bridge well.

  4. Gorgeous and yummmmmy!!!!!

    I just love that name... The Tappan Zee Bridge! I will finally look up the background on the name. :-)

    This post simply says..... Summer! :-)

  5. Now that is a bridge! Love all the pictures.

  6. "The existing bridge was named the Malcolm Wilson Tappan Zee Bridge in 1994 at the behest of Mario Cuomo."

    Gov. Andrew Cuomo tried to re-name it.

    Bahhhh-humbugggg on our nutty Gov. Cuomo!

    But the Assembly did not take up the bill before adjourning the 2017 session late!


    The Tappan Zee Bridge lives on!!!!!

  7. I don't think I have ever seen a duck that color.
    Lobster? Fresh Lobster? Now you are talking my favorite food!!

  8. Always looks like you two have so much fun! Love the duck.

  9. You make me love that place, Debbie. I want to visit there!

  10. Some amazing shots.I love the sailboats on the water.

  11. Nice shots! Love the sea scene with the shrub and also the duck.

  12. That duck is so interesting, I've never seen one like that before.🌞

    Your post made me hungry.lol😊

    When you have time, I left a question in reply to your recent comment at My Real Life Reviews. Thanks in advance and have a super week.🌼

  13. The water view is beautiful! What a great place to relax after eating. That's a very unique bridge...quite the modern art look.

  14. Loved your hodge podge of photos; just beautiful as always. I hope to be making more graphics soon; so these area lovely. I especially love the ones of you two. Your smiles show the joy you are feeling during your adventure. I really liked the photo of the sweet duck. The colors are unusual; amazing shot.
    The food looked yummy! I wish I could join you sometime because I'm sure I would love these dishes.
    Blessings and hugs!

  19. You are giving me all kinds of ideas of places to go when we go see the kids :) I didn't know they built a new bridge, anything that makes getting around New York easier sounds good to me!

  20. You take the best photos, Debbie. Have you ever thought about joining ViewBug.com to enter some of your beautiful work. I know you'd win! :)
