Independence Day

Pin It Independence Day means different things to different people. First and foremost, we need to all be grateful for the liberties afforded us in this (still) wonderful country. However, I'm not a political person and don't wish to use this as a format for political things, so let's get on to the fun stuff. :-)

Hubby and I took a little mini vacation this week to our favorite place...the beach! We have a little place we rent out for the summer, but only managed to get August rented so we were lucky enough to use it ourselves this summer for the 1st time. As an added bonus, there were fireworks across the bay last night. We sat on our deck and watched the light show despite the clouds.

This morning, we woke up to a beautiful, sunny day. We went exploring to the North Fork of Long Island. Had a lovely breakfast at Love Lane Kitchen in Mattituck. We then went to Catapano Dairy Farm hoping to bring bring home some of their delicious freshly made goat cheese. But we forgot to bring a cooler & couldn't chance keeping the cheese in the car for the ride home in this heat. We enjoyed visiting the goats & their lovely grounds. Will have to go back another time to purchase some delicious cheese.

 Our next stop was to our favorite Long Island Winery, Laurel Lakes. Had a little wine tasting and of course made a purchase to bring home. Very nice folks and delicious wines.

Hmmm.....what will tomorrow bring? I'm guessing a relaxing day at the beach is in store.
