This is probably the best place I've been all summer. The Howling Woods Farm is an animal sanctuary for wolfdogs, aka hybrid between a wolf and a dog. They are bred as exotic pets, only to be dumped when people don't realize how much training, space, and time they need to provide to these gorgeous creatures. If you have a bit of spare time, it is ABSOLUTELY worth a visit to check them out. It had been a couple years since I had last been, and it was nice to see some familiar furry faces and some new ones around.

I've been trying to get a bit more out and about this summer, to varies degrees. I hadn't been to this area of Trenton before, but I recalled reading a lot about it in one of my guilty pleasure series by Janet Evanovich. Mostly the Stephanie Plum, bounty hunter, series takes place in Trenton with occasionally forays into neighboring towns. The New Jersey capital does not really have the greatest reputation, but this area is really quite lovely and far from actual downtown area.

This is probably one of the cooler places I've been this summer. I am a bit of a sucker for bookstores, especially ones that include cool lofts and do happy hour! Housingworks Bookstore currently has both. Managed to snag some really fun books reminiscent of childhood and definitely want to pop back here again in the not too distant future!

Despite having lived near and worked in New York City for a while, I've never actually taken the Staten Island Ferry from New York City to Staten Island (and back, of course!) It was definitely a lot of fun. I see the Statue of Liberty regularly when on my way to work, but it was nice to see her up close. I definitely was one of those tourists, taking pictures of her and the boat. Definitely a fun, free activity to take part in if you have a bit of time and want to get out to, what natives to Staten Island call, "The Forgotten Boro."
