Friday was full of anticipation because Aunt Janice and her friend Kay were coming to visit! I cooked Shrimp Mozambique for them Friday night and made sure to include the Goya seasoning on their welcome bag.

We spent some time driving around Westerly and Watch Hill so that Kay could see the Atlantic Ocean. She had never seen it and we needed to cross that off the bucket list for her.

Saturday began nice and early with more sightseeing and shopping to be had. We had a fantastic time exploring all the beauty and offerings of Stonington Borough.

Look at the cute basket I scored! I envision using this to stock napkins on the patio as well as for transferring cups, plates etc. from the kitchen to the outdoor area.

Then we visited Old Mystic Village before heading to eat Lobsters in the Rough at Abbott’s in Noank, CT. This was an item on my Aunt’s bucket list so we needed to make it happen. Then we headed home for some lovely conversation on the patio.

While I was out with Aunt Janice and Kay, the kids and my husband got down to putting up the pool. Splash!!

Sunday began with breakfast at The Cooked Goose in Watch Hill and most of us ordered the corn pancakes special. I made sure I ate a side of fruit first as I knew the pancakes would leave no room for fruit afterwards.

Then we walked off the extra calories by walking to the lighthouse in Watch Hill as well as taking in the views from the Ocean House.

After a few more hours at home, they left onto the next leg of their journey.
