SoNo Again

I had no plans for the weekend but when I heard the weather was going to be spectacular I decided to jump on my bike for an unplanned trip to SoNo. I discovered this place last year and was eager to return.

SoNo is what cool kids call South Norwalk, an old coastal town in Connecticut. It successfully re-invented itself as a hipster heaven. There are chic boutiques, trendy restaurants and fun things to do.

I said hi to aquatic friends, ate delicious seafood risotto and drank craft beer. I visited an old railway museum where I learned how train-track switches work which is fascinating: their logic is still used in computer programs.

Summer is made for fun. What have you been doing?


  1. Hey Ally! I know it's been a million years and I've mostly abandoned blogging, but I'd love to send you a Halloween card. If you'd like that, would you send me your address at viciousandrotten (at) -Mouse

  2. We went north to a friend's cottage in Muskoka. It's beautiful up there! I think you'd really like it.

    I'm glad you got out to enjoy summer. It won't last much longer.


  3. It has been a while since I have been to Norwalk but it has long been a cute little town.

  4. Weekends without any definite plans often work out to be the best! Sounds like a wonderful place to visit, and how cute is that seal? We went and chilled out in my brother's fabulously wild garden. xxx

  5. Oh fun! Summer has been kind of weird for me. I've done a lot of fun things, like going to baseball games, pool parties with my nephew, and going to the zoo. But I also had to admit that the job I wanted isn't what I thought it would be, and I've been struggling with workplace bullying.

    I'm so glad you had a good weekend. Hard to believe the summer is ending.

  6. It seems to be a nice place for a weekend visit! Its wonderful that you get out to explore so many places on your trips!

  7. I do like those times without plans!!! So No sounds great and I love that black and white picture of you- so arty!!

  8. SoNo sounds like a fun little town! How cute is that seal!
