Our trip to the U.S.A.(21)- Mystic Pizza in Mystic town.

After the Aquarium we went to the beautiful little town of Mystic.
Look at this long limo!
 We wanted to visit Mystic Seaport but it had already closed.

 So we went over the bridge to the town to eat something!

 We went to the most famous pizza place in the area Mystic Pizza. It was built by a Greek family and it became famous when in 1988 a film was shot there. Mystic Pizza with Julia Roberts (now that's a movie I still have to see)


 We loved the place.

 And the pizza was very very good.

 Then we walked a bit around town.



 We went inside a great store that sold glass ornaments.

 Oh I loved those vases.


 We also went and attended the opening of the bridge while a ship was passing underneath! Look at those huge concrete pieces.






Later we went back to Mystic Aquarium Olde Mistick Village.



 There was a Christmas shop open.Yes in July! It was called Sofia's Mystical Christmas.
 There were thousands of Christmas ornaments to choose from.




 And Jim Shore ornaments too.I bought the little boat on the bottom shelf.

And a silly necklace.Which I used this Christmas at school with great success.

 I would have bought a little dog ornament but they were expensive!







 After seeing some more shops from the outside we returned back home.

Looks like a lovely place to visit! I was once in a train from Boston to New York which broke down close to Mystic town (if I remember well...long time ago!). I wish I could have visited the place instead of being stuck in the train for about two hours' time!!!

Looks like a great place to explore - I do remember the film 'Mystic Pizza' but didn't know there was a place too...Id love to explore more of the USA...I have so many photos from our trip to the West Coast/California - I should do some blog posts too!

That Christmas store looks wonderful! They are usually expensive, but they have anything you can think of! It's fun to look at everything!
I've never been to Mystic, would like to go! I have been to a Black Dog store on Martha's Vineyard, though, and it was so much fun!
