"Amazing", "Breathtaking","Unique"and "Just Wonderful" are just a few words that have been used to describe a visit to The Baiting Hollow Hummingbird Sanctuary.
Sandy, Helen and I were fortunate enough to be invited as guests by Mr. Paul Adams to what we would describe as an implicitly beautiful and serene piece of heaven in Riverhead on the north fork of Long Island, N.Y.
Panorama overlooking L.I. Sound
Looking over the Long Island Sound perched on a bluff several hundred feet up, you get the feeling you are in some far away European island overlooking the Mediterranean.
The foliage planted is designed to attract hummingbirds and trust me you are in for a real treat as you take your seat or walk the paths of this sanctuary while silently waiting for these beautiful little birds to sneak up on you.
They come as quickly as they go and keep on coming as long as they have the plants they feed on and that blossom in the peak months of summer.
Thank you Mr. Paul Adams for your fine reception and keep up the good work that you do for your community. They should be grateful to have you and your sanctuary. Keep on sharing!
The Lobster Roll Restaurant "Northside"
For dessert, and almost directly across the street on Sound Avenue, you can stop by the "Northside" location of The Lobster Roll Restaurant for their famous lobster rolls.
On the day we visited, we just happened to be greeted by Christina Vargas, the General Manager. We had that "I can't wait to have your your lobster roll" look in our eyes and no more than 10 minutes later Kristin came out with 3 beautiful rolls filled to the brim with some pretty, pretty, pretty chunks of Maine lobster.
There you go folks...A social success for sure!
Thank you Christina and staff for a pretty, pretty, pretty fine dessert...ie your famous lobster roll!
