Thimble Island Cruise

I don’t know how I grew up in Connecticut and didn’t hear about the Thimble Islands until a couple of years ago, but I did. I must be living in a hole. President Taft, Tom Thumb, Garry Trudeau, and Captain Kid all have a connection to the islands. You’ll have to go on a Sea Mist cruise (leaves out of Branford) to find out what that connection is, but it will totally be worth it.

I’ve been waiting a couple of years to get down there and it was wonderful. The cruise was great. Captain Mike was fun, knowledgeable, and has a fabulous voice. The weather couldn’t have been better. It was a great way to spend a morning, and I highly recommend it for families and friends of all ages.

Do you know of any other great “secrets” in Connecticut that I might like to put on my to-do list?

Thank you for giving your time to stop and read my blog. I hope it encourages you to keep moving. Move and the body will be happier. And when you're moving you can hike, run, swim in Jell-O, race over non-Newtonian fluids, travel the world or build igloos--if that's your thing. If not, you can watch me do it. This is just a spot to try and feel good about life.

    I’ve wanted to do this for a while. I have it on my to-visit list for the summer. Can’t wait!
