Long Island, New York
Carol & Gary started forking from Greenwich Village to Amagansett & Montauk while dating. 1981 – 1982.
After Ben left for NYC, C&G returned to forking around from Northampton. 2010 – 2015.
Always before or after the “season”.
Continuing the annual foray from the Upper West Side in 2016.
Checked out Aqua Beach Club in Aquebogue. A basic dated motel with a little beach on Peconic Bay. In Mattituck, stopped at Harbes large farm where kids were apple picking. We grabbed our favorite cider donuts and some apples. Tasted sauvignon blancs at Macari Vineyards and bought a bottle.
Meandered along Peconic Bay to the ferry in Greenport. Crossed Shelter Island to the second ferry to North Haven. Stopped for lunch at Lulu Kitchen in Sag Harbor. A mediocre bistro on Main Street.
Landed at our perennial ocean front paradise. East of Amagansett. West of Montauk.
The off-season ever-empty beach
From our porch we spy that lonely umbrella
This year it’s blue.
Across the street, as always, the Clam Bar. Fried flounder. Light and fresh. Sweet littlest necks.
Back to the porch
A strange sight on the horizon
What are those stacks on that ship
And one it tow
Burning some gas it seems
Gary on the porch catches Carol on a beach stroll
So comes down to find her on a shell search
Gosman’s Dock for dinner
Lobster Roll / Lunch was closed
Gotta get that lobster right outta the sea
Explored the historic area of Springs
One morning a magical surprise. Sitting on the porch having coffee.
Luckily Gary had his telephoto at the ready.
At first we thought we saw shark fin
But no! They were jumping
Dolphins this far north? Such an unexpected treat
Heading home. Two ferries back to the North Fork to stock up on end of summer riches. Heirlooms, cukes, squash, lettuce, peppers, sweet corn.
