Happy Tuesday Friends! This weekend Alex and I snuck away for three days of relaxation on the North Fork of LI. We were blessed to be welcomed into the home of friends for a B&B like stay on this mini vacation. We drove out early and took our time making our way through the many towns that the North Fork has to offer. We walked and ate our way through Greenport, Southold and Mattituck and stopped at a few of the many vineyards that Long Island has to offer.
Saturday Morning we joined Captain Batkowski aboard the Miss Patty for a full morning of pulling lobster pots. Commercial fishing is no joke and a lobster pinch has a nasty grasp but we had a blast. While we did not pull in a large bounty we did catch enough for dinner!
After our morning fishing we drove around and witnesses the miles and miles of beautiful farms, fields and vines. Potatoes, corn, sunflowers, asparagus and more… We never could have imagined that the North Fork boasted so much beautiful farmland. There are also farms with alpacas, longhorns, goats and of course the bison at Tweed’s bison farm. Before heading back to the city limits we made sure to check out the local fish market and a few of the many farm stands.
It was a much needed relaxing weekend for both of us! Don’t worry Long Island – we will be back for you!
