I remember as a kid that my parents, grandparents, and aunts and uncles used to take me and my cousins to Hammonasset Beach in Connecticut. It was not too far from where we lived and as I’ve gotten older, my aunt still likes to take me!
Well, now my aunt and my family want to take Jolie everywhere because who cares about us parents, right?!
Of course a trip to Hammonasset would not be the same without my aunt. After all, this beach is Connecticut’s largest shoreline park at over 2 miles of beach so my aunt knows exactly where to park and walk from.
I did remove Jolie’s socks and sneakers and she hated the feel of the sand! She was wiping her feet forever before I could put them back on. Something about the texture with toddlers – some kids love it but not mine! Jolie doesn’t even like fuzz from new socks in between her toes.
We enjoyed the walk along the beach and then of course went to our favorite Lenny & Joe’s Fish Tale nearby. It’s your typical casual restaurant of fantastic seafood. The lobster rolls are the best with warm lobster covered in butter on a toasted bun; yum, yum!
Thanks Aunt Ann for a great day out! One day soon we’ll go back when we can actually go in the water!
