Coffeeneuring Ride 4: Salem, Relaxed

We've been lucky with the temperatures this fall... sort of? The mild weather has been amazing in many respects, and today's ride through Beverly and Salem was a stellar one. The leaves are just past peak and those that didn't fall during last week's nor'easter are now drifting to the ground like snowflakes. So pretty.

Being the weekend after Halloween, Salem was still quite lively, but far less crowded and frenetic. I had a fun afternoon looping around the small streets by the wharf; stopping into Circle of Stitches where I splurged on some super soft yarn for the loom; and next over to Washington Street for coffee at Gulu Gulu Cafe -- a Creme Brûlée Latte and grilled banana bread. 

It's a day for splurges.
