Chris and Evey's Sunday Getaway

Today Chris and I decided to go for a drive somewhere new and enjoy the beautiful day. The one thing I love about living here is that you can drive an hour and be somewhere amazing on the water and feel like you are a million miles from home. I love it. Anyways.....Today we decided to go to New Bedford, which is in southern Massachusetts about an hours drive from our place. We left a little later in the day and got out there around 3:30 pm. We decided to find some cute little place to have a late lunch. We found a place called Davy's Locker right on the water over looking Buzzards Bay and we sat outside on the patio. We both had a garden salad and a turkey club for lunch and it was very good and cheap which is always a bonus. It was so nice to sit outside and enjoy our lunch while watching all the sailboats and yachts go by.

After lunch we drove up the road a little bit to Fort Taber State Park. We took lots of pictures and had fun walking all over and exploring. I love the ocean and I love just sitting out on the rocks and watching and listening to the water and waves, I find it to be so peaceful and relaxing.

We decided to leave to go and get some ice cream and then come back in time to watch the sunset over the water. When we got to the ice cream place we found out they only took cash and we didn't have any. We set out to find an ATM, which we did but decided to put the ice cream off for a little while and instead headed to the "historic district" of New Bedford. It was kinda weird because being a Sunday night and all most things were closed and there was no one around. All the streets in the historic district are cobblestone which looked really neat. After walking around there for a while and taking some more pictures we decided to head back to Fort Taber to watch and get some pictures of the sunset.

The sunset was beautiful tonight and Chris got some good pictures of it. After walking around and doing some more exploring we went back and sat on the rocks for a while. We hit up the ice cream stand on the way out of town and boy was it good. Perfect end to a wonderful day.

Blogger for some reason doesn't want to upload any of my pics right now so I will just go ahead and load some through Hello under this post.....enjoy!!
