For the month of July, I played a little game that I called Adventure by Fate, where each week I partook in a different adventure – decided by the roll of a wooden block. For my fourth and final week, the block landed on “Explore a new town” – so that’s just what I did.
I grew up on Long Island, which is filled with plenty of really adorable towns on the water. I’ve been to many of them in my life, but there’s one I’d never had a chance to explore, so I took this chance to do exactly that. My sister and I drove out to Greenport, which is a village in eastern Long Island, almost on the tip of the island’s north fork. Located on a harbor, Greenport was once a large part of the fishing and whaling industry. These days the village is becoming a hotspot on the island – Girls even shot an episode there recently, as we found out from one of the shop owners we met while we were there!
We had such a fun day, walking around, exploring all of the incredible shops. There was so much décor inspiration to be found at every corner! The people were so lovely. Everyone seemed to move at a relaxed pace and there were friendly faces wherever we went. It started to rain, but we didn’t care. We bought ourselves some Mexican blankets, threw them over ourselves and danced around! If you’re ever out in Eastern Long Island, you should definitely take a trip to Greenport. We will certainly be back soon.
See all of my other adventures!
