ZipCar Road Trip

December 30, 2012

We needed to go for a drive.

If you drive a car on a regular basis, maybe you don't have this feeling very often, but if you're like us and without a car, sometimes you just want to go for a drive. See what's around. Listen to music. Watch the scenery roll by. Not get pelted by rain, or wind, or cold. Safe in the capsule of a car with a heater, warm coffee in travel mugs, and egg sandwiches wrapped in foil.

I didn't do much planning, I didn't want to think too much about it so after poking around on google maps I picked a destination city, and a scenic route by which to get there.

Long Melford, here we come! (Or, so we went!)
My phone died as soon as we got there so there aren't too many pictures. Luckily Devo took a few snapshots just so I could post about it here!

Our Destination, 1 hour SE of Cambridge

Our first stop in a wee-little town, Stoke By Clare. I 'm pretty sure that's Mr.Burns in the middle.


Stoke By Clare Tower With Secret Message


Adorable house near the church, Stoke By Clare


Church at Stoke By Clare


Stoke By Clare was full of pink houses! Love the thatched roof on this one.


And guess what I loved about this one?! Bun-Buns on the Roof!

Beautiful cemetery at Long Melford Church

Our first, but certainly not last, Sticky Toffee Pudding!

Thanks for taking the time to read!
I hope this post inspires you to go out and explore where you live, even if it's just a new restaurant, or a walk about town. 

Happy Wednesday!
