Given the rainy forecast for tomorrow, today I decide to wander around the streets of Mystic, shopping and snapping photographs.
The outing begins at noon with a meal at Rice Spice Noodles, a contemporary Thai restaurant just outside the Main Street shopping area.
Sparse inside and out, it evokes a minimalist calmness. The “screen” door is covered in a dark gray fabric which surprised my fingertips when I grasped it. The open dining room is full of small black tables, each one adorned with a single brightly-colored gerbera daisy in a small vase.
