– Wolffer Estate, Sagaponack
But first. The North Fork. Paumanok Vineyard in Aquebogue for a few bottles of their citrusy sauvignon blanc.
Must-stop at Harbes farmstand. Apple Cider Donuts.
This year added a visit to niece Hadley’s new home in the middle of a vineyard in Cutchogue. She was working on a photo shoot there for Country Living magazine. On to Southold to catch her daughter Grey eating lunch mush with berries at Giddy & Grandpa’s place.
Greenport ferry to Shelter Island. Another to Sag Harbor. On to East Hampton to stock up on snacks at Citarella.
Montauk Highway past Lunch.
Early check-in for another edition of beach feet overlooking the empty plage.
A little afternoon cocktail delight on a perfect afternoon at the water’s edge. No one else in sight.
Requisite dozen little necks fix across the highway at our Clam Bar. This year with a lobster-roll chaser.
Back to the beach porch for a gibbous moon view.
Then another private beach day.
After enough sun, looked at real estate in The Springs and Southampton and lunch at Bobby Van’s in Bridgehampton. Grilled calamari salad. Yum.
Then a side trek to Wolffer Estate in Sagaponack.
Back to the beach porch where we had a surprised visitor.
Another sun sets off the back porch. Until next time…
