We roamed the streets and made our way to Gantry Plaza. I expected brick and buildings, but what I saw instead were hammocks swinging in between make shift ‘tree’ poles and large wooden lounge chairs scattered by the waters edge for neighbors to soak up the sun or the view. Couples played chess at small tables, and an ice cream truck sat along the curb, while a summer concert was being held right in the main square.
It was the type of place that you could ‘people watch’ for hours. The sights, and sounds added such personality and character to this perfect little ‘corner’ of Long Island.
I have lived in NY all of my life, and have never seen NYC the way I did that day. I think it might have had a bit to do with the company I had. Lea and Mike’s laid back, easy going dispositions fit the surrounding vibe perfectly.
Here’s hoping that location really isn’t everything, and that perhaps the good company you keep is.
I adore the moment before a kiss…
A quick snuggle…
I needed to find me a tree!! You know how I love my trees…
I like the paradox here.
Look at those baby blues…
Smack dab in the middle…of it all.
A little bit of hazy amber light…
In my world holding hands is one of the coolest things in life.
The skyline had a new addition for the evening…
Thanks Lea and Mike for such a fabulous tour. It brightened up my week being in your company and your new home town.
The ‘big’ day is so close now. SO excited for October!
