The North Fork

"In two weeks it'll be the longest day in the year... Do you always watch for the longest day of the year and then miss it? I always watch for the longest day in the year and then miss it."
- F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby

They say it's the land of Gatsby. "West Egg" and "East Egg" were fictionalized versions of the real North Shore villages of Kings Point and Sands Point. My mom and I recently took a day trip to the area and she had to all but drag me back to the city kicking and screaming. That water was so very blue!

However, I am more than happy to kiss summer goodbye. I'm ready for mittens and evergreen, and for my life to slow down thankyouverymuch. In the meantime, I'm going to enjoy this upcoming fall weekend in, well, The Great Gatsby's college town. I mean it! Gatsby and I attended the same college, I swear to you. Um Ya Ya.
