Staycation Update

IMG_20220714_173532_649Already to the middle of July. Not sure how we got here but as usual time is flying by. Busy first half of the week and IMG_20220715_153128_087 then had Thursday and Friday off for a mini staycation. Had a nice few days even though they of course flew by as well. 

Thursday we took a day trip out to Eastern Connecticut and had lunch at Chamard Vineyard in Clinton, CT (delicious French bistro) and from there headed to Stonington, CT (right at the Rhode Island border) Checked out the lighthouse and then went to Saltwater Farm Vineyard. Hung out there for a while with some more wine. Definitely a fun day. Super delicious lunch (I had Croque Madame and we shared pommes frites) and great wine. And our way home we stopped at the Quarter in Newtown and ran into our friend Patrick which was fun. 

Yesterday, Friday, we headed into NYC. Took the train to Grand Central and went to MoMa (Museum of Modern Art) to check out the new Matisse exhibit. After the museum we had lunch at the Yardhouse and eventually headed back to Grand Central and stopped at Centrico in Bethel before heading home. 

Two busy but fun days. This morning we slept in nice and late which was relaxing. Lunch at Rizzzuto's and now we are at Edison for a bit. Tomorrow I think we are going to see the new Marvel Thor movie so that should be fun. 

Not ready for the weekend to end but it's only Saturday night so there's still tomorrow to savor before it's back to the grind. :)
