Stopping to Smell the Ocean...

I do these posts every so often when I step outside my normal routine and realize how refreshing it is to stop and smell the ocean (yes, even in the winter). Brian and I had such a nice Sunday driving around and stopping off at the water to just take a breather and enjoy where we live. We toured Southport, CT yesterday and I fell in love. Just twenty minutes away, I had never seen the gorgeous homes and lovely scenery...

he's really good at taking our photo, so we don't have to bother anyone around us to stop and take a pic

we even got in some nice shelling

isn't the sky so pretty, it's like reflecting off the waves of the water

Being a bit stalker-ish I had to snap some pics of these homes, are they not to die for?
A stone's throw from the beach...
I wonder what the people would think if they saw me ...

this is outside the Pequot Yacht Club, where there was a sunfish race going on

loving my ring, and being engaged!!
