Dawn to Dusk

On Friday after work I took the train from Manhattan to Greenport, last stop on the North Fork. Rich was waiting for me at the station and we walked back to his apartment. Because he is wonderful he had already picked up pizza and put a beer in the fridge for dinner. Just as I was finishing my last bite of kale and bacon pizza I decided to take a "short nap," and ended up going to bed at 8PM on a Friday. That my friends is a perfect Friday night in the country because you won't miss a moment of Saturday.
I woke up just before 6 in the morning for a sunrise bike ride.
If you look closely, you can see the osprey in her nest.
After a quick breakfast and stop in town for coffee and Rich surprised me by taking me to a lavender farm (more on that later!).
Stopped at a farm stand across the road to get supplies for lunch and to admire the sunflowers.
After whipping up sandwiches and a cucumber-tomato salad (which I ate all of before leaving the house) we went to the beach and sat away from the crowd. Over on our own secluded peninsula and spent the afternoon watching the fish jump and swapping restaurant suggestions with a nice couple we met while swimming by the shore.
Once the sunburn started to set in we went home to have cold drinks and watch the goldfinches in the yard.
We walked into town to go to Bruce's Cheese Emporium for dinner.
We recommend the cheeseburger and the fish and chips. I was excited that the fish was Long Island porgie.
After dinner Meghan and Rich met us at the apartment to hang out for the night. We had cider and went to the bar and then came back to drink wine, but my camera had already gone to bed.

  5. Kallie, this post was absolutely beautiful! I loved it! First off, your Friday night happens to me often haha.  I will go to my boyfriends and go in to "read" for a bit and be out by 10 haha while he is up until 2.  Then I am of course up at 7 ready to go while he wants to sleep in... oh well! Sometimes weekend mornings are really nice just by yourself!
    The food, bike ride, and lavender farm (oh, and wine), sound like pretty much the perfect way to spend a day!
