JD and I had grand plans for our Saturday.
All week I had been dreaming of taking a nice leisurely drive out to the North Fork,
stopping at Briermere to pick up one of their delicious pies, 
and visiting a winery or two for a tasting. 
Apparently, everyone else had the same idea.

We got a late start, made a few pit stops and sat in traffic on a one lane
road from Riverhead to Mattituck, which sadly resulted in a lack of pies.
We made the best of it, drove straight to Greenport and had a lovely little lunch outside
at Bruce's Cheese Emporium, a place we've discussed needing to try for years.
I had the most delicious sandwich, goat cheese, sun dried tomatoes, and grilled chicken. 
If you ever find yourself i the area, I highly recommend it. 
JD and I were kicking ourselves for not doing so sooner.

After lunch we walked around the town.
I've only really been to Greenport in the Winter so it was nice to see
all of the boats in and people walking around and most of the shops open.
Since by this point it had gotten too late for the wineries,
JD and I decided to try another place we've never made it into before,
the Greenport Harbor Brewing Co. We loved it. 
My goat cheese, sundried tomato, and grilled chicken sandwich.
JD's steak sandwich with cucumber.
I guess no one wanted to be the "bad egg".
Pretty window display.
On our drive home we pulled into a little parking area with a 
small rocky beach in Southold to take in this beautiful sunset.
