Moment of truth: Beach town shopping can be a tad tacky. Gaudy prints, bathing suits galore. way over priced products and materials you know are going to disintegrate upon first wash. (even on the delicate cycle.) I must say I was happily surprised about the shopping in Greenport. It had all the couture of the Hamptons. Being just two hours ….
Life is to short to stay in a bubble. Travel. Explore. Experience. And if not you can always read about it here.
Let me first begin this with, I survived! Secondly, let me state I can never show my face in Greenport again – joking…Kinda To say it was a fun weekend, would be a huge understatement. Having never been to Greenport before, I had no idea what to expect. It is touted as the less prentenious, cheaper alternative of the Hamptons. They ….
“We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea, whether it is to sail or to watch – we are going back from whence we came.” ~ John F. Kennedy I won’t serenade you with Willie Nelson again. Actually I think Beach Boys is much more fitting anywho. Nope, I am doing what the thousands ….

Sailing teaches alertness and courage, and gives in return a joyousness and peace that but few sports afford.” ~ George Matthew Adams Two years ago, to celebrate my old age, my ….
If you live in New England, it is probably a very safe and winning bet, that you went to Storyland as a kid.

Since I tend to travel with the masses, the gaul and schnoz the some people have tends to amaze me. Many times I have to clamp down on my pedestrian rage and just shake my head. There seems to be ….
And our way Is on the road again Just can’t wait to get on the road again The life I love is makin’ music with my friends ~ Willie Nelson Willie Nelson’s song on the Road Again could be my anthem. Or maybe it should be air and tracks? I am sitting at JFK in Terminal five waiting to fly back ….
I had a friend who visited not to long ago and she asked what my favorite part of the city is. The first thing that came to mind was Bryant Park It is one of those hidden treasures that if you know where to seek, ye shall find. And if you don’t, but happen upon, it is magical. Nestled uponst skyscrapers ….
After my early morning adventure’s at World’s End, and the much needed coffee run, my brother, sister-in-law, nephews and I all headed back there for some exploration. It was also the perfect place to take photos. My Brother and his family were announcing some exciting news. And I could use more photos for my portfolio. The fog had indeed burned ….
