So, like clockwork Kim went and got the rental car, texted me he was on his way back. Myself and bags ( no nasty comments please) waiting at the curb. Here's the important part of the story....GPS wouldn't work so kim googled a route that had NO TOLLS. Took us 45 min to get out of NYC and on our way north to Woodbury commons...200 designer discount stores. We walked around NOT IMPRESSED. Kim got a really nice golf shirt and marie got .....drumroll please.....NOTHING!!!!!
In the parking lot marie got GPS working and Kim programmed the route to Mystic conneticut. He programmed in no tolls. Oh dear what a trip. We were on so many back roads we DID NOT KNOW what state we were in. Seriously. The GPS is so bad I had to hold it up to my ear to hear the chicks voice and it wouldn't warn you when to turn. We did not hv a paper map with us and know way of knowing if we were even headed in right direction. The GPS totally flipped out when we were detoured by an accident, the street names were wrong and there were no gas stations or stores or shoulder to pullover .
On the back roads of whatever state we were in were beautiful country estates.i don't know if they were summer homes or people actually live there year round. Finally we hit a sign....welcome to conneticut. Then we got on a highway and pulled into a gas station and bought a paper map. So much for technology.
We pulled into Mystic Conneticut after 6 pm. Quaint pretty little town. Had dinner at overpriced restaurant on Mystic river.
And here is the finish to this story....Kim is sick. Flu/cold symptoms. Started last night. He is sleeping.
