One of the sad things about living a city life for me is not owning a car. I love the freedom of roaming around on mini road trips. Thankfully, the issue is quickly remedied by renting a Zipcar from a parking lot close by. My friend and I explored Stanwich, Greenwich, and New Haven Connecticut in quick succession on a day trip out of NYC. We stuck our toes in the sand as the ocean lapped up against our feet, drank coffee on Yale's beautiful campus, and watched the remainder of the sunset on a concrete dock with some fishermen. It's easy for my camera to take over the day and to forget to be in the moment, enjoying the sounds and smells of the place I am in. Driving helps me to remember to be present...well because I have to! All in all it was quite a lovely day. Click on the photo below to see more pictures from the day.
