Father's Day Outing

We enjoyed a Father's Day outing to Captain Scott's Lobster Dock in New London. The weather was perfect - not too hot - and a few hundred other people had the same idea. But with Mr. B wanting lobster, we stood in line. An hour later we had our food. The children were treating us. After whole belly fried clams for me and a hot lobster roll for Mr. B (both delicious) we finished with an ice cream cone. Blueberry for Mr. B and toasted coconut for me. I loved the coconut!

It was outdoor seating and there was a pavillion where you could get out of the sun. We enjoyed watching the gull on the piling (no, he wasn't giant sized), and looking at the boats. It was a perfect afternoon. Since there were six of us and our cars only carry five, we took two cars. The children drove and all we had to do was enjoy the scenery while they followed the Google Map directions I had printed. It was a perfect day! I hope your Father's Day was just as nice.


Join me with a visit to Little Red House for Mosaic Monday.

That sounds like a perfect Sunday and a perfect Fathers' Day. The thought of an Atlantic seafood dinner is sooooo tempting!

Nancy,
I haven't been in New London for years. I have very wonderful memories as I went to college there. I had my first lobster there. Don't recognize where you went though.

Glad you had a nice outing.

We love that place too!...

and I have to say, Connecticut weather has been weird for as long as I have lived here (24 years) but this past year has been a harsh one. Thanks for visiting This Old House today, glad I have found a fellow CT blogger!
