One of the antique stores had three floors, with the top floor being mostly clothing and furniture. There were so many things there that it was slightly overwhelming. I didn't end up getting anything, but it was definitely fun to look at all the neat things. It takes a lot of time to really look through everything!
One of my favorite things about summer is outdoor patio seating. I love being able to eat and drink outdoors in the warm weather. We stopped at this restaurant that had a big outdoor seating area when I noticed that they were having happy hour drink specials on sweet tea drinks. So we enjoyed some alcoholic Arnold Palmers while soaking in the warmth and sun.
There were tons of ferries and sailboats on the water, which I loved. There is a state park that used to be a fortress and it had great views of the water and the area in general. We also found the biggest dandelion EVER.

You know when a day is pretty perfect, but it's somehow hard to describe it to someone else? That's what my day in New London was like. The weather was perfect, the air smelled of the sea, and the whole general atmosphere of the place was so calming and serene. It was the middle of the day in the middle of the week, so nowhere was really crowded. It was a new place with a ton of places to explore, and everything just felt so carefree. I love places like that where you can get away and just kind of forget about everything else for a while. Traveling keeps me sane. It's good to get lost in something like that every once in a while.
