Outing To Clinton, New Jersey …

Clinton, New Jersey, a picturesque town set in Hunterdon County isn’t far from where I live and so daughter Deb and her dog Chappy and I set off to explore a bit.   Clinton is most recognized by the iconic picture of the red mill… it pops up on many NJ websites, calendars and is a favorite subject for artists and photographers.

Here we are, let’s explore…

Coffee With Chappy …

I had no intentions of doing a fourth Saturday coffee outing but Deb’s dog Chappy (my granddog) joined us and made it extra special.  He was so happy to be going out with us that he actually relaxed in the car.

We headed out to western New Jersey to Blairstown which is set in the rolling hills of Sussex County.  The sky was dotted with puffy white clouds everywhere.

As always though… coffee is first.  Deb & I have been to the coffee shop before.  This was Chappy’s first time there though and he really enjoyed sitting outside being admired by passerby’s.

Of course Chappy doesn’t drink coffee but usually we can entice him with bites of whatever we’re eating but he didn’t seem to be interested in my bagel.

My creation
Although this shot makes it look otherwise, he still refused. (This was a lucky shot, I didn’t realize until later I’d gotten his tongue at just the right moment).

Chappy’s ready now to move on to the next phase of our outing… a walk around town.

100_8207So off we went…

Wandering around town taking in the sights… (and sniffs)

I thoughtfully browsed in a store for a bit so Chappy could relax with his mom.   Dogs always look comfy no matter where they are.

If you’re looking for hope, here it is… Hope, New Jersey.. we drove thru it on our way home  🙂

Coffee And Grand Opening …

This is the third post in a row about my Saturday coffee outings with daughter Deb.  This past Saturday we went to the lovely and historic town of Morristown, New Jersey.

 Of course, coffee first.

After coffee we walked around town a little bit and took some pictures including one that was obviously a photo shoot going on.

We then headed over to the new Whole Foods that opened only days ago.
