Hi Donna,

Great job showcasing Momauguin, I just love little beach communnities like this. So many of ours in SoCal have grown so much I miss places that look like this. Love the playground on the sand in your video. I'd bet the kids love this.

Hi Lynda! - While Momauguin is the only beach community in East Haven, there are others in neighborhing towns.  I love them too.  What's so nice is that you have the beauty of the beach within walking distance of almost anywhere you live in the area and a close-knit community connection.

Donna, You indeed live in a beautiful part of the country! I know where I'd be on a day like today! Great post!

Wanda - I consider myself very fortunate to live in an area where communities like Momauguin are so close by.  I can either walk or jump in my car and be at a beach in less than 5 minutes.  It's heaven!!

George - Let me know when you'd like to go so we can do lunch!

Jennifer - It's a great combination in my book!  You're making me hungry just thinking about it. :)

Andrea - You are in for such a plesant surprise when you see how great it is! :)

Will - It is definitely both.  While I live in New Haven now, Momauguin is about 5 minutes from me and just a great place to visit.

Donna, this is a great presentation of Momauguin. It has the essence of a small beach community and those are the most charming. Florida is quickly losing them, although in recent years towns have awakened and protested and put a stop to some of the development by limiting height of buildings.

Sharon - It not only has the feel of a small beach community but a great affordability level especially for first time homebuyers.
