Truly Julie leaping at the chance to visit a semi-private island!This is our campaign to bring back those cheesy Mentos commercials from the 90′s. Mentos the freshmaker! Kidding! Though…it could apply:) Recently I had the pleasure of visiting Great Captain’s Island in Connecticut. It’s a hop and a skip of a boat ride from Greenwich (10-15mins)…but not gonna lie…it’s a bit of an exclusive place. You have to be a Greenwich resident…or a guest of one (Thanks Dan and Sarah!). So there you go…a reason to start befriending those Stepford Wives (Sarah…you are anything but). But with this exclusivity…you get the perks of a very quiet, clean, quaint island. And since it’s free to dream…I liked checking out the glorious mansions with the impossibly well manicured lawns en route to the island. Now if I can only figure out how to get invited to one of Martha Stewart’s barbecues. Should’ve mentioned it to her here. I wish each and everyone of you a splendid summer!
