My wife took me on a very nice vacation for my birthday.  It is beautiful in the summer along the eastern Connecticut shore line.  I highly recommend the Saybrook Point Inn and Spa in Saybrook, Connecticut. The resort area overlooks a marina on the Connecticut River which leads to Long Island Sound.  The Fresh Salt Restaurant there is top rated.  The food and the staff are excellent. We had a surprise at breakfast this morning.  When we came toward the outdoor restaurant area we noticed a camera and light set up.  It was Willis Scott taping a segment of the Today Show.  They asked us to not talk while Willis Scott did his opening with announcement of birthdays.  The program should be aired this Thursday, July 24th.  We set our DVR.

THE BACK PORCH 142 FERRY ROAD,  OLD SAYBROOK CONNECTICUT Last evening I ventured to the coast for a change of scenery and a seafood dinner.  I had heard about The Back Porch, but never had the chance to go... until last night.    I dined outside overlooking the marina. The attire was casual, and the atmosphere was relaxing.  How can you go wrong over looking the Connecticut River? The appetizer of "Lobster Bon Bons" was delicious.  I started to laugh when I ate these, because now I can say I sat around and ate bon-bons all night :)  The French Martini that accompanied these went down real well too.  For the entree I had Seared Georges Bank Scallops With Braised Littlenecks, Sweet Corn and Chorizo Broth, which I would recommend highly.  The combination of flavors in this dish was phenome...
