It's sad to see that the lab was closed. Although I never used them, I have driven by their place many times while on vacation in Mystic. I've been there 6 times in the last 10 years. It's a great town.
I'm glad to learn that they are a supporter of the community and festival. I'm a firm believer in supporting the community businesses when financially practical.
I got to experience the festival for the first time this year. There were just so many great photos. In fact, for the first time ever, I purchases a print to hang in my living room. I just had a blast walking around.
Here's a little funny anectdote. Unfortunately I had to cut the browsing short. My daughter accidently dropped her sandal into the river off of the drawbridge. Of all the days for her to do that. I had to carry her from the bridge all the way back to Mystic Pizza (opposite ends of downtown). It's all good for a family laugh now. :-)
I'll have to lookup ABC Photo Lab when I'm back there again. It would be great to get your prints done the same day you take them while on vacation.
