Well! July was a hot month!
We welcome the cooler temperatures of August, but we recall our happy July meanderings in the charming village of Southport, Ct., very nearby Osprey House.

Feeling hungry? We highly recommend Southport's Artisan Restaurant, Tavern, and Garden — it's the perfect setting for lunch or dinner al fresco. The menu at Artisan encourages you to "eat well and experience cuisine influenced by the rhythm of New England’s seasons and farmstead offerings."

|Planters filled with fresh herbs|
|Comfortable outdoor seating|
|Luscious lobster Risotto!|

After lunch, take another drive. Southport Beach offers utterly relaxing vistas.
