Last week, Rob and I spent a few days at the North Fork of Long Island, NY. We didn’t venture far from the ferry dock at Orient Point before a “restaurant” sign led us to the Orient General Store, where we had some tasty sandwiches.
I took a ton of photos, mostly of houses in the area, which I’ve divided into categories, this one focusing on porches. I’ll be showing others in the next few posts.
Some were well kept …
and others were more ramshackle, which I like, too.
The rooster and convertible drew me to this one, along with the color combination.
I walked around this neighborhood early in the morning.
The air was still and sleepy.
just love those old houses with the front porches.
Glad my porch wasn’t posted as “ramshackle”……better go out and check on the condition of our porch (actually….we don’t have a front porch…..just joking!) Fun to see porches with comfortable chairs….makes me remember a wonderful trip up the coast of Maine and seeing quaint front porches like these.
Glad you are enjoying your trip. Also a belated Happy 30th Anniversary to you both…my husband and I celebrate the same milestone in July. Many congratulations!
The only thing I remember about Orient Point was the ferry landing. We stayed in Amagansett with my grandmother, so spent the summer on that area, since a lot of relatives lived there.
So lovely! Looking forward to seeing more!
Very lovely pictures:) I look forward to more. All of those porches were lovely. I wish I had one like that but alas not.
So glad you were able to get away for a few days. Looks like a lovely village. Happy Anniversary 🙂
Love the pictures. Porches were once a gathering place on warm summer evenings before air conditioning and computers. People knew their neighbors and life was simpler no texting, talking was the way to communicate. 🙂
Oh, so cozy!!! What fun to see…thank you!
Sweet porches! Great ideas for finishing the outside of a dollhouse!
