Saturday Morning.. August
The really cool hotel we stayed at Friday night after our long flight into Providence..
The Groton Inn & Suites.. Groton,Ct.
The hotel we stayed in was like a one bedroom apartment.. I couldn't believe
it..It was bigger than Sean's apartment in Berkeley! The rooms were
clean & spacious, fully furnished and had a full kitchen with dishwasher!
(OK, we didn't need the dishwasher.. but if we had stayed here all weekend..
maybe.. ) The staff seemed pretty friendly the limited time we were
there.. and the place had a restaurant that served breakfast.. If we ever
get back to Mystic, this is the place we would prefer to stay! Well if
wishes were fishes or whatever... so, we were on the road.. and off to
Mystic to meet our RADP (rec.arts.disney.parks) friends at the Mystic Aquarium!
as close as we got.. Mystic Seaport... saving it for our next trip maybe???? =)
Off to Mystic.. First we get to the Olde Mystick Village to look around.. There are several cute shops here and old buildings.. kind of reminded me of the little shop section of WDW's Marketplace in Downtown Disney.. the bathroom here isn't as nice though..

chatting Disney again...
After the official meet some of us folks headed over to the Newport Creamery for an Awful Awful.. Yes, cheesy but true, they ARE "awful big and awful good!" The menu board looked really good, and Sean & I decided, no matter what, we'd have to come back here soon!!! =)
