Lobster Shack Branford Connecticut Has The Best Tasting Lobster Rolls Ever! If you're a lover of lobster rolls as I am you've got to stop by the Lobster Shack located at 7 Indian Neck Avenue in Branford Connecticut. Having heard rave reviews about the Loster Shack I had an opportunity to visit there for the first time last year when I was showing relocation clients from California propeties in Branford.  Being lobster lovers, they asked if there was anywhere nearby where we could get lobster rolls and the Lobster Shack was the first place to come to mind. I had told my husband that these were the best lobster rolls I had ever had and have recommended the Lobster Shack to many friends and clients. Our granddaughter was with us over the weekend and ended up staying until yesterday.  We de...

Stony Creek in Branford, CT is known by most to be a vibrant beach and boating community... but most frequent this area in the Spring and Summer and Fall (or at least when the ground isn't covered in the snow). Personally, I love the beach during the Winter.  Areas on the Connecticut Shoreline, like Stony Creek, are currently quiet, Less crowded and very peaceful.  The sunsets look amazing with the light reflecting off the water, snow and ice.  Stony Creek, with so much heart and culture come Springtime, is even more peaceful, relaxing and beautiful when covered in fluffy snow.

Branford Point Winter Scenes One of the things I love about New England is that we have four seasons.  It doesn't matter if it's spring, summer, fall or winter when you live along the Southern Connecticut shoreline.  Most times people equate spring and summer when it comes to the many waterfront communities along the shoreline.  These are the most popular seasons bringing visitors and tourists to the area for fun in the sun for their boating, sailing and swimming activitites.  To me it doesn't matter which season it is.....the beauty, calmness and serenity of so many of the waterfront communities can be seen at any time of the year. Yesterday after a couple of appointments in the early afternoon in Branford I took a drive and took some photos of these Branford Point winter scenes and th...
