From West Milford, NJ to Milford, PA

On Sunday we took a drive in Mia to Milford, PA. Milford is a quaint little town right on the Delaware River. We took twisty-turny back roads the whole way there and it was a lovely drive even though the day was quite hot. I love that about where we live: you can take back roads to just about anywhere if you so choose to do so. 

We walked around a little, talking in the historic buildings and quaint shops but it was just too hot and stifling to do much.

We headed to lunch at the historic WaterWheel Cafe where it seemed everyone else in town was also eating there. We waited for about 15 minutes or so before we could be seated but I really didn't mind since we got to stand right in front of the air conditioning unit. Ahhh, cool bliss! Our little table was right by the window looking into the mill and we could see the wheel turning round and round. The food was good.

All in all, it was a beautiful drive and a great way to spend the day with a little convertible car.


Milford, PA was recently named one of the top small towns in America to retire in wink

One of the things I liked most about New Jersey was the network of smaller roads that, as you say, you could take almost anywhere. All the highways in Florida have been widened and streamlined to the point of ridiculousness, but New Jersey has really preserved the small-town vibe of narrow, twisty forested roadways.

Steve, people have the wrong kind of idea about New Jersey, don’t they? They only think of what they’ve seen depicted on shows like the Sopranos. When our friends from Colorado visited us last year (and CO is also the Queen of crazily wide streets and multiple lane highways) they were blown away by all the two lane roads we have.
