July 2012 - Summer family vacation in the East Coast, USA

We cruised past Ground Zero (super new building being built), under Brooklyn Bridge, and around the Statue of Liberty (which was closed for renovations).  For dinner, we met up with Mimi and her very tall boyfriend at John's Pizza, which was in an old gospel church.  Afterwards, we watched the fabulous Broadway show Wicked.

The next day, we met up with Fiona and Peter.  We toured the Discovery museum, then past the Arthur Ashe tennis stadium, to the Met's new baseball stadium where we enjoyed a game in the hot sun with our hot dogs and sausages.  The mango-on-a-stick was certainly one of the highlights! Eventually the sun beat us down so we retreated to Fiona and Peter's apartment where we were amazed to hear Peter's own songs.  Tallulah chose our Japanese restaurant for dinner.  We had some coffee in the cute neighborhood, and then took the metro back to the bustling city center.  Alan watched the new Batman movie The Dark Knight Rises, only days after the Colorado shooting tragedy.  It was amazing to watch the movie in Gotham itself.

Connecticut - Before we knew it, it was time to move on.  We repacked into the Land Rover and drove up to Connecticut, checking into Hyatt Place in Mystic.  We met up with Sue and Jillian and then departed for memory lane.  We drove into Waterford, stopped by where Holiday Travel used to be, visited our old high school and were happy to see our names still on the Excellence board, dropped in the library and took pictures at the cute duck pond, and then drove into Governor's Landing, where we happened upon the Cummings.  We got a full tour of our old house from the very nice current owner.  Alan kept on saying, "It looks so small" until Susan gave him the evil eye.  After our pleasant tour through our childhood home, we went to dinner at the scenic Captain Scott's Lobster Dock.

To be continued...
