The City with a Big Heart

Milford HarborI’m a recent graduate, and in-between working full-time, exploring and yes, figuring IT out. I am functionless without coffee. I frequently carry a writing journal with me, and have a passion for traveling, art, nature, and semi-sweet white wines. While I attended university, I double majored in Art History and Asian Studies, with a minor in English. I intend to use this blog for topics related to travel – experiences of where I have been, and where I want to be in the future.

Ever since my family returned to Milford when I was 3 years old, I’ve branded it my home. I live only a few steps away from the beach. Granted its Long Island Sound, but it’s a great place to lay down a towel and relax in the summer sun.

Milford thrives with nature!

First and foremost – Charles Island. It’s an island connected to the main land by a sand bar that appears during low tides, otherwise known as a tombolo. It can be found right off the coastline of Silver Sands State Park. The tombolo was initially created from the glaciers shifting during the ice age. This island is infamous for  Captain Kidd’s buried treasure. Annually locals and tourists explore the island to find his treasure, but allegedly it has yet to be discovered. Beyond the island is the visible stretch of Long Island.

Second – we also protect the nests of Piping Plovers, Herons, Egrets and the United States National Bird – the Bald Eagle.

Third – at the finality of every summer is the Oyster Festival. Due to the increase in popularity over the years, vendors and visitors come from neighboring states. But for those that were born and raised, or presently reside in Milford, this is a great time to see nearly everyone you know, while enjoying the craft fair, local shoppes, festivities, bands, drinks, and of course – the oysters. However, after every Oyster Fest, one of the best things to look forward to is the most celebrated season in the North East – autumn.
