    A summer afternoon in SoNo

    One of Connecticut's best examples of city renewal and revitalization is South Norwalk. 30 miles down the coast from us, SoNo (the historic district) is home to lots of little shops and some fantastic restaurants. Washington Street cuts through the heart of SoNo and is usually hopping à la Newbury Street.

    If you ever find yourself here, definitely check out Caffeine at the marina end of Washington Street. Caffeine is a coffee and chocolate lounge with an incredibly relaxing, eclectic atmosphere.

    I wish I was listening to Yo La Tengo's The Sounds of the Sounds of Science while visiting the Maritime Aquarium. The instrumental score that Yo La Tengo created for French filmmaker Jean Painleve's underwater documentaries would've been a great soundtrack to making friends with the sea lions, sharks, sea turtles, seahorses, and *yowsers!* jellyfish.
