Tell us about your favorite summertime destination in Ridgefield

I venture into town quite often to take a walk as part of my morning exercise routine. Walking through this scenic town is such a relaxing experience and I always pass by people offering a friendly hello which puts a smile on my face. I also enjoy taking late afternoon walks in town with my daughter. During our walks we have a great time catching up and spending time together. And on occasion we’ll make a quick stop at Deborah Ann’s for some chocolate and a bag of M&Ms. That really makes me smile!

What community event do you look forward to attending? How does it make you feel?

My favorite summer event is the weekend of the Art Walk.  I have been a participant for the last few years and have enjoyed talking about art with the people that stop by the location where I’m exhibiting.  I also enjoy walking around town and meeting the other artists and seeing their beautiful artwork. It’s a great community event that brings together many people who love supporting the Guild of Artists and the many creative people that exhibit their work. 

What summer activity in Ridgefield makes you crack a smile?

There are many things in this town that put a smile on my face.  However, I’d have to say the thing that makes me the happiest is the fact that within a few minutes' driving distance there are many open space trails in Ridgefield where I can go for a hike with my camera. During the summer months, the open spaces are filled with opportunities to photograph wildflowers, fields, beautiful trees, farm animals and a variety of wildlife.  There are so many fun things to do in this town but spending time in nature for me is the best.
