Paddling







It was a beautiful fall weekend here on Long Island. I have been talking about buying some fresh eggs on one of the eastern Long Island farms. My husband, being the gallant soul that he is, volunteered to drive to the North Fork. We could get eggs, pumpkins, produce, and wine. Ah but there was a catch-the canoe came along.





Every other person in the tri state area must have had the same idea-except for the canoe. Some of you may know that the Long Island Expressway is often refered to as the nation's longest parking lot, well this past weekend the back country roads-one lane each way won that title. A cornacopia of gas guzzling autos were inching their way east, carrying crying children, distraught parents-all in search of the perfect pumpkin and corn maze. I only hope they had better luck than I had.

Pictures are from farm web sites.


I opted to visit a winery-
Laurel Lake Winery
Oh and hubby did get to catch a fish. Next weekend no canoes!

What a pleasant weekend. I'm so glad you were able to do "your" thing. I'll bet the winery was fun.

Also, you are now one my blog roll! See you soon!

I love the North Fork! My husband grew up vacationing there as a child. We have gone back for family things and it is so beautiful. We have been to a few wineries out there too. Did you know they used to be potato fields??

I love visiting the North Fork! I love visiting when someone else is driving even better so I can taste my way through :)

Beautiful pictures!
