I have retyped this first sentence no less than six times because I still feel like it’s not right to just….go on with life. I wanted to say that I really enjoyed this week’s resolution, but I feel guilty for enjoying any part of this past week. When is that going to go away? Anyone else having trouble finding a balance between living, obsessing, questioning, and remembering?
Well. I did enjoy my Sunday, and it actually was a nice break from the constant refreshing of news feeds. Dan and I spent the day checking out a new (to us) restaurant and a park we had never been to. The restaurant is in Salem and I can still honestly say that I have never had a bad meal anywhere in Salem. I’m starting to suspect that there really ARE witches and warlocks practicing magic in Salem, but they’re all doing it in the kitchen. And it’s delicious.
We had heard about Howling Wolf a while ago, but never had the chance to stop in. I think because Orange Leaf is right next door and someone always gets distracted. This place was excellent competition however, if Mexican can in any way compete with frozen yogurt?
Why are all my posts about food?!
The place itself has a really great atmosphere. And by atmosphere, I mean these:
I had the tofu burrito and it was INCREDIBLE. It had avocados in it, some pineapple-mango salsa, and achiote-soaked tofu. I had to look that up, too. Here. It wasn’t spicy at all (I don’t like anything that is) and it was enough for me to fill up on and still have leftovers.
After lunch we drove up to Maudslay State Park in Newburyport. My aunt had given us an annual parks pass a few months ago and we’ve been (im)patiently waiting for it to get warm enough to be able to visit some of these places.
You guys. This place? It’s like it was made for photographing. I felt like I was in a slightly more rustic version of The Secret Garden. We can’t wait to go back in a month or two and see what it looks like when everything is in full bloom! It’s just…I mean…there are no words. So I’ll use pictures.
If I ever go missing for an entire day, there is a good chance you will find me under that tree by the water with a book in my hands.
This is officially my new favorite outdoor spot. Where are yours?
