Sunday Driving

My original plans were to check out the Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum in Ridgefield, CT with my friend Mindy.  But somehow or another we missed the exit, and ended up taking a 200 mile road trip through New York and the Litchfield County instead.   It was a fun, relaxing, destination-less drive. We passed a few abandoned insane asylums, discussed the feasibility of the vegetarian lifestyle, blasted a few Beatles albums, and passed a few apple-eating deer.

As we were heading back we stopped for a quick bite to eat at the Yankee Pedlar Inn in downtown Torrington.  It’s worth a visit if you’ve never been to a 19th century style tavern, but I’d recommend checking it out on a Friday or a Saturday night when there might be more people around.  While we both enjoyed the food, the lack of other patrons and the dead silence that resulted made it feel a bit creepy.
