Today I had to get out of here. I had to stop walking the same inebriating figure 8 within the walls of this apartment. The weather had finally turned and this cooler – 60’s – weather is what my soul speaks to.

I told Aaron this morning that I felt like a caged bird. I had to get out of here. I had to fly. I wanted to run as fast I could in the opposite direction from Right Here.

So I did.

I packed up the car, bundled up my girl and we got in the minivan and sped in the opposite direction of this town.

We found ourselves in orchards, with tea, pointing inside a glass case and trying umpteen different kinds of truffles, on a carousel, a boardwalk, a beach and … a surprising Junique place (Unique Junk Antiques) …

And it kept going and going and going. After a while I didn’t even know what I was looking at half the time, but I wanted to see it.

There’s so much I didn’t really look at, so much I need to see.

A wonderful end to the day that needed to bring me far away from here. It delivered. It brought me all over the world in one acre.

  1. Amazing! What an perfectly quirky place! I have been searching for a place like this for almost a year, I am making a trip there tomorrow (thanks!)

  2. You are so welcome!! We might go back as well. It’s too fun not to! I could have spent all day there – and I would have if I found it on my way out of town 🙂
