Welcoming, fun, quaint, easily walkable, and bike friendly, we loved this town.
The downtown had a nice mix of retail, restaurants, and galleries with peek-a-boo views of the water and historic seaport buildings. A village blacksmith.... where do you see that in today's world? Tad took his morning run out to Island's End Golf & Country Club which is the furthest east golf course on the North Fork of Long Island Sound. Had he not been wearing his running shorts, I have a feeling I would have lost him for the day!
We biked into town one day and took the dingy the next. Woohoo to both!
If you've done any amount of boating, you understand chandlery's and marinas with boat services are your next best friends. We became very good friends with Preston's Chandlery in the heart of downtown!
The coolest discovery was a little store named "Sea Bags", a company that makes cool bags from recycled sails. Click on their logo to read about them and see the bag I bought!
We finished off the evening at Porto Bello's, a fun little restaurant in Sterling Harbor Marina where we docked. The marina is beautiful, the food was really good, and the entertainment was 1970's sing-a-long music. Rock me momma!
How can it get any better?!
