It's hot and humid and annoying again weather wise but over the weekend we actually had one nice weekend day (Saturday) where the weather was pretty perfect. Not too hot, not too cool, low humidity, no rain. By Sunday it changed to being humid again with unstable weather but hey we got one day. I will take what I can get.
The week itself was pretty busy. But then that's every week these days. Just basically putting one foot in front of the other and doing my best to get from one day to the next. Wednesday I was supposed to have my appointment to finally get the implant/crown finished but my dentist called last minute needing to cancel because a part they needed didn't come in. I need to call them back to follow up to re-schedule but just haven't found the time to do that.
Saturday was a truly great day. Tiring but great. We picked an early start and left the house a little after 6.30am. Got to Hammonasset State Park in Madison, CT around 8am and spent a little over two hours there, walked close to 6 miles. I didn't realize it is quite so big. We checked out a lot of the trails but there was one we didn't get to I think. So there's a good reason to go back. Weather was beautiful and it was fun to be out and about getting some exercise.
When we were done there we headed to Saltwater Vineyard in Saltwater Farm Vineyard in Stonington, CT - right by the RI border. Had some delicious wine and were able to sit outside enjoying the pretty scenery. Definitely a place to go back to. From there we headed back west and had lunch at Chamard Vineyard in Clinton, CT. Always a great spot. I love their French bistro and the wine is great as well. Had a nice leisurely lunch before heading back towards home. Our last stop was at Centrico in Bethel, CT. Was the perfect night to go there since they have such a beautiful outdoor area with sand, palm trees and a firepit. Was great to sit outside, have a light dinner and some yummy margaritas (papaya was their seasonal one and was absolutely amazing)
So yeah, was a tiring and busy say but definitely worth it. Sunday was more low key. We slept in later and had lunch at Rizzuto's in Westport. And eventually caught up on some more TV. Watched the first episode of the 2nd season of "Ted Lasso" and also started "Schmiggadon". And watched the season finale of Charmed which threw me for a bit of a loop. I won't post any spoilers but yeah, if you watch the show, you can always message me.
