Ed & I have been living out of the country since 1991, Singapore, U.K. and currently Malaysia. We love our life abroad but we very much look forward to retirement and being able to enjoy our home on a full time basis.
Stonington is a wonderful village with an eclectic mix of people.
We love our home and some of our favorite things include sitting on the deck and watching the scallop boats come in, watching a beautiful sunset from the loft , walking down to 'the point' and swimming at DuBois beach.
Stonington offers a good variety of restaurants & bars within easy walking distance. Noah's, Milagros, Water St cafe and Zacks are our favorites. If you prefer to be your own chef just walk across the street and buy fresh frozen seafood at the 'honor system' fish market from Stonington Seafood harvesters ( the best scallops i've ever had ) or fresh lobster at the dockside.
On saturdays we have a local farmers market,in the summer they set up just on the green across the street and in winter they move indoors to the Velvet Mill. The Velvet Mill is a wonderful repurposed building which now houses studios for a wide variety of talented artists.
There is a large supermarket just a few miles down route one but travel just a bit further and you will find excellent food co-ops in both Noank & New London.
Toms newstand offers all the basics and local news & the beautiful town library is only 2 blocks away.
