Shadow Shot Sunday 2 arrives in this summer season (north of the equator that is). Naturally family vacations are remembered, by child and parent alike, today it is the summer of 1999. The family ambled up the Connecticut coast to Groton and Mystic, about an hour away from home...there may be plenty of attractions in the area, yet what the bigger attractions for the kids is the motel - and the pool that we don't have at home...
Vacation visits included the Submarine Force Museum in Groton.The museum and sub history is great, look at the building detail that looks like a tower from a sub.
The USS Nautilus is moored here. This was the first nuclear sub, commissioned in 1954 and pulled from service in 1979.
I couldn't go inside the ship, but Patti and the children toured inside. In the shadowy photo, Allegra (10) and Cam (8) stand aside a sub's prop
