Summer in Connecticut ~ The Way We Like It.


Heading out to the Long Island Sound on our friends boat, we pass the Port Jefferson Ferry .


 We docked across from Fairfield Beach to watch the fireworks but God has surly set off His own display giving the man made kind alot to live up too!


 America the Beautiful ~ Happy Birthday to Our Dear Country!




 Coming back in to dock ~ we pass the Bridgeport skyline.


Around our house we like hydrangeas, 



                                                              and mussels.....


 our grand dogs Daisy and Jake (not shown are also Cutlet and Taylor).....


 and my son Franky and future son Tony chillin'out out in the backyard.


                We like to eat.....   (Ashley, Cheri and Frank pictured)


and meet friends and family at Captain's Cove Seaport in Bridgeport....


where they have great fish and chips and silly statues!


 Farmers markets...




 fairs on town greens...


American flags waving....


and my boy's first jar of his homemade pickles that he made from the cucumbers in his garden....



These are the good things that summer is made of here in my corner of the world.
