Mini-Vacation




We were in Sag Harbor for two nights last week (see previous post and here). Anyway, it is the most delightful town with a  very old 5c & 10c store.


The horse is enchanting.


Personally I'm not mad keen on boats --except to take pictures of!


But there are lots in Sag Harbor.


The beach, as everyone points out, is extra sweet in September.


What a nice sea-washed stone.


The season for fruit stands with grapes


and peaches 


and apples


and, sad but true, the first pumpkins.


This wonderful duck is a gift shop. You can read about it here. Since we were tourists we went in and bought stuff for the children.

  5. Hello Elizabeth:
    Such a very 'delicious' post with, above all else, the superb images of so much wonderful looking food, particularly the fruit.

    The sea, and everything to do with it, we absolutely love, but only as observers. We look forward to spending some time in Brighton in October where we can, happily, lie in bed and see the sea, empty we suspect so late in the year of all the summer trippers.

  7. Oh Elizabeth, your photos show a place that would refresh anyone's spirit. A place so, so different from The City That Never Sleeps!

    Who could resist that Duck!

  8. Lovely photographs as always Elizabeth, I was so surprised at how sad I felt when it was evident the lovely horse had a leg broken off.
