Clinton, CT is a small sea coast town in the northeast of the US. It is halfway between Boston and NY, but is far away from any feeling of being near a big city. There are several small towns surrounding Clinton. It is popular in the summer, but not overcrowded like so many other coastal areas. It has a relaxed atmosphere. This picture is at the waterfront, where there is an excellent lobster shack. I’ve heard people come all the way from Maine (!) to eat this lobster.
