Historic Seaport of Hickford (1709)

2nd day at East Matunuck - woke up early and went for a long walk at the beach and even on the rocky pier! It was still very foggy, as you can see!! :)






Had breakfast, then went for a short drive to visit Hickford - a beautiful historic village (300 years of history!)
Visited this beautiful old church - still has no electricity - when there is church service - they do it with candles!








Another beautiful old church - St-Paul's Church



And this I found too cute - a puppy pub!!

One of the beautiful street of this little village

Would have liked to have more time to learn about this city - full of history!

We had lunch by the water - it was beautiful and hot - and the view was wonderful!

As you can see... it was very very hot!!

Beautiful old house

Not sure why they named their house that way...

What beautiful shots!! I especially love the old churches!!

I'm guessing the name of that house came from taking out a big mortgage. I'm enjoying these vacation photos--the restaurant one is my favorite of this bunch.
