The Close of a Saturday

Today was beautiful with temperatures in the 70s. It was so busy with traffic and tourists on the North Fork one would have thought we were in high season already. Left turns were nearly impossible. Greenport sidewalks were filled with strolling families walking slowly looking at everything. I saw no empty tables where there was outdoor cafe seating. Faces tilted to the sun after a particularly long, cold, snowy winter. Sand was warm underfoot as we explored the Greenport Harbor breakwater. Late afternoon steamed clams and seafood chowder went well with a brisk white from the Lenz winery on our back deck. At evening I drove up Depot Lane to the Sound just to look and found a quiet sunset.
