We always wandered into town and what a town it is. Greenport is found just a couple of towns from the end of Long Island on the North Fork.
The drive out to Greenport is so picturesque that there are numerous published books dedicated to the beauty of Long Island's North Fork. Along the lovely drive you'll find beautiful farmlands and their charming farmstands offering their fresh crops for sale; long stretches of land belonging to nurseries containing greenhouses full of the most beautiful flowers and plants for sale; and possibly the most popular and well known would be the endless wineries. Winery after winery offering tours and tastings makes for a wonderful day "out east" as the locals would say.
On this particular day my Mom and I stopped at a lovely place called Lavendar By the Bay. This beautiful place offers all things lavender, from fresh and dried bunches of lavender, to sachets, to soaps and oils. You can also cut your own which was such a unique experience. For $7 a bunch you get a sickle and a basket and you're free to cut one of twenty varieties of lavender.
