Long Island North Fork Harvest
FALL ON THE NORTH FORK
Its fall the leaves are changing slowly because the weather is so wet. It has been raining for what seems like every other day. Its causing the winemakers a lot of pain At this time of year what they want is SUN, sun for ripening the grapes. So at this point they are praying and hoping.
The farm stands are busy selling their harvest: apples, pears and pumpkins and many have corn mazes.
The day-trippers are out in full force and Route 48 has become slower than usual. Not to worry, this is all winding down now that November is here.

NFBBA HOLIDAY HOUSE TOUR
The North Fork Bed & Breakfast Association is having their annual Holiday House Tour on December 5th, 2009. There are nine B&Bs chosen to be part of the tour. They are divided into two groups, the Champagne Tour and the Merlot Tour and the prices will be $75 and $25 respectively. The irony here is that Arbor View House whose rooms the tour groups are named after was chosen to be on the Merlot Tour. No mind next year we will be on the Champagne Tour and visitors will see the suite the tour is named after. Full details can be found at the Arbor View House website.
