Hello, my friends. I’m finally home and I’ve missed you, but I sure had a wonderful time away. It’s late as I write this and I wanted to check in before I hit the hay.
I don’t know how many places I’ve stayed where free high-speed internet was touted, yet it doesn’t work. The internet was down the entire time at the hotel, but the weather was incredibly beautiful, so who cares. I’ve just returned from the North Fork on Long Island, NY. All I can say is WOW. What a beautiful place this is.
Back in September, I was invited by a friend to take a trip to help celebrate her birthday. Her husband’s family is from the North Fork area, and she thought a tour of the vineyards out there would be a fun thing to do.
We stayed at The Soundview Inn, outside of Greenport. This was our beach. Our hotel room was more like an apartment, with two bedrooms, two baths, a nice sized living room and dining room and a full kitchen. Good price, too.
We shopped in Greenport where I shot this photo. I liked the sign and wanted to eat lunch there but was still full from breakfast. Ha!
We rode an old-fashioned carousel and I actually managed to grab the brass ring. What fun and what memories it brought back!
We laughed, we marveled at the scenery, we dined at some great eateries, we visited wineries . . .
This one is Peconic Bay Winery, where we listened to some great music and watched the sun go down.
I had such a wonderful time with these friends I’ve known for over 30 years. Their family is like my second family. That’s me on the far left, then Jo, Sherrie, and Peg. Jo and Peg are sisters and Sherrie is married to their brother who my husband and I have known since high school. Happy Birthday, Peg!
Have a great Monday, all ~ and thanks for stopping by.
