Framed Perfection

This home built in the 1920s has just come on the market. It has not been for sale in a long time. Sitting on the porch here it is hard to imagine a nicer spot to be.

Details Emerge

When this home was new last year the shingles has not yet turned the classic gray. After a year of weather the shingles have darkened and the white trim deatils are now fully expressed.

On The Move

Cruiser Bikes have been the vogue around the village this summer. Based on bike designs from the '50s & 60's these bikes tend to have a heavier frame, but I nice smooth ride.

Outdoor Alcove

Is this a second floor porch or balcony ? Maybe it is both. The gracious arch is an ellipse.

Holiday Corn

With Halloween the next decorative holiday to plan for I was impressed to see this black corn at Lynch's Garden Ctr. I turns out this plant is actually Millet. What a great look for spooky porches.

Truck Muster

This morning I heard a classic fire siren, not the modern kind that sounds more like a battle from Star Wars. The weekend after Labor Day is the time slot for the annual Southampton Truck Muster, a wonderful show of antique firetrucks and related sport competitions. 
 More great old trucks.

Please Pass the Ketchup

This summer we rented to house to a succession of families . For some reason most tenants felt they needed a fresh bottle of Heinz. Not one picked out an alternate brand. Maybe we should have a ketchup party!

Red Sky at Night

The saying- 'Red sky at night, sailor's delight' does not pertain to the setting sun. 
To see the red sky in question, one looks away from the setting sun observing the eastern sky as the sun sets in the west.

Harbor, Cove, Pond

This is Cold Spring Pond in Southampto, I guess Cold Spring Harbor was taken and it's too big to be a cove. The "pond" does open into the Peconic Bay.
