I am continuing the habit I started during quarantine of walking every day, but now that the quarantine is lifted, I can travel a little further than my immediate neighborhood.
The Stonington Borough is only a few minutes from Mystic by car. If you are in Mystic it is worth the trip. It has a beautiful little beach with gorgeous views, a really cool lighthouse and a fun Main Street perfect for walking.
My first stop was the Dodge Paddock and Beal Preserve, located at the end of Wall St. It has a short, easy trail with beautiful views, including inviting benches to sit and soak it all in.

Winding paths lead to shoreline public access.
Beautiful views of the ocean.
Fun little paths winding around the paddock.
Rocks to climb out on.
The road leading to the Dodge Paddock and Beal preserve has lots of beautiful views and cools houses.
This would be a fun spot for a picnic.
How about this cool tree swing?
A seat with a view.
The Stonington Borough has amazing flowers everywhere you turn!

Pink flowers down a cute alley.
The Portuguese Holy Ghost Society is one of our favorite spots. Every spring they do the best, most fresh fish and chips you have ever had. Fridays during Lent, this is the spot to be!

For some reason I am fascinated by all the doors in this little fishing village. There are so many different colors and styles.

Pretty blue door in the Borough.
This door is just so ornate and unique.
How about this bright blue door?
My favorite, it looks like a hobbit door.
And this house has one of our door mats in front it it! How cool is that? I love seeing our knots around town.
