So what do you think of when you hear about taking a trip to New York? Visiting the sites in Manhattan, seeing a show on Broadway, the hustle and bustle of New York City? Well as fun as all of those things are this trip to New York was far from any of those events. Even though I wasn’t far from New York City in miles I felt like I was in a different state all together. I went to visit my daughter who is in Long Island, NY and we drove all the way out on the island for a weekend getaway. There was countryside, wineries, small towns and the beach. Perfect for a little rest and relaxation.
And of course I had my sketchbook with me and couldn’t resist creating a couple of scenes from the Bed & Breakfast we were staying at. A Walk in the Woods, Bed & Breakfast was a darling Great Gatsby dutch colonial home located on the North Fork of Long Island in Southold, NY. It was tucked away in the woods, so quiet and serene, yet so close to the local beaches. What a perfect setting.
I had to capture that front door ( you know my obsession with doorways!) and here is one from the porch where there were several areas where you could sit and read and relax!
We finished the weekend up visiting my parents and aunt, having a wonderful Sunday family dinner. It was a great weekend to get re-charged!
