A few weeks ago fellow Active Rain member Andrea Swiedler and I met for the first time and took a 45-minute tour aboard The Sea Mist for a Thimble Islands cruise.

  Thimble Island Cruise - Thimble Islands CT The Thimble Islands are a chain of 100-365 small islands that lie off the shore of the affluent community of Stony Creek in Branford Connecticut. They are made up of Stony Creek pink granite rocks, ledges and outcroppings ranging in size from small rocks to 17 acres full of local tradition and a wealth of history. While they are said to be named for the thimbleberry which is in the family of the black raspberry and once grew wild on them, it is a plant that is rarely seen in the area now and is more notable in the northern New England area.  The Thimble Islands were first discovered by Adrian Block in 1614 who also discovered Block Island and were a favorite spot of the Mattabeseck Indians as a summer camping ground. During the 18th century i...

I had the pleasure of being invited out to lunch today by a friend of mine Samatha Liacos who is a home mortgage consultant with Wells Fargo and a fellow Active Rain member who I would love to see become a more active blogger.  Our lunch date was at Mango'sBar & Grille which is located in the Branford Town Center on Main Street between Ben and Jerrys and Trailblazers.                            I have been to Mango's numerous times for their Happy Hour from 5-7 pm Wednesday through Friday with other agents from my office but this was the first time I had the opportunity to visit there for lunch.
