A trip to Quogue, Long Island






I went to visit Joanne in Quogue, Long Island last weekend.
It was so great to see her and her daughter, Yasu again!
The weather was gorgeous, so we spent most of the time at the beach.
I loved the smell of the ocean. It remained me of my hometown..

I went for a walk in the early morning. I saw a baby deer.. There were beautiful trees and wild flowers all over... It's so nice to get out of the city!

Joanne and Yasu are leaving for Japan tomorrow. It will be a long flight.
Hope they have a safe trip to Japan!

So happy you had a nice vacation with your friends! I love the way you add your drawings to your photos. My favorite is the one with the seaweed and the "natsumi" anemones!

I love your additions to photographs shared, and am in complete agreement about the smell of the ocean. I miss no longer living by the sea. All that blue and all that space. Ah!

Hi Natsumi,
I love your LI post and it's so fun to see your 'view' and how everything you experience becomes so Natsumi-rashii, beautiful photos and drawings and I like the handwriting, would be a great Quogue postcard (to sell or display at the Quogue store!!)...
It was great to see you, thank you so much for taking the trip out...
We had a good trip back to Japan.
Oita though is the HOTTEST city (the temperature) in Japan for several days in a row, so we are finally feeling the heat of summer.
Enjoy last summer days in NY.
THanks for visiting my Tomare blog too,glad you liked my first movie attempt:))
