The Route Shrewbie Will Take…

Instead of just driving up directly to Newport, I have decided to take the whole day and meander my way up the Connecticut and Rhode Island coastline.

First Stop-

New London Lighthouse

The New London Lighthouse was designed to match the homes of the local residents.  The last lighthouse built in New England has the dubious honor of supposedly being haunted by a ghost named Ernie. The ghost is allegedly a keeper who committed suicide after learning his wife ran off with the captain of a Block Island ferry boat.  Ernie hold on…I’m coming!

Second Stop –

Abbotts Lobster in the Rough~Noank, CT

Oh yeah…planning on hitting Abbott’s in time for lunch!

Third Stop – 

Old Stoney 

The once stalwart Old Stoney now houses the Lighthouse Museum.

Forth Stop-

Watch Hill, RI

My parents have always talked about going to Watch Hill when they lived in Mystic CT so I figured I would go and see what all the fuss was about.

Fifth Stop – 

Point Judith

Arguably, some of the best surfing in New England.

Sixth Stop – 

Not so glamorous, but smart…mainland food-store.

Last and final stop – 




  1. Woo Hoo! There oughta be lots of great photo ops on this route!

  2. You mean between all the rain drops?

  3. Whoo-hooo! Drive safe, shrewbie and see you soon!!!

    Be safe too, Jen.

  5. WOOT!! I’m off to pack right now!
