Lazy Girl, Season 2, Episode 1: OHS Benefit

Orient on a Perfect
Summer Night
Here we are. In the perfect Summer village on a perfect Summer day on the perfect East End of Long Island. Saturday we packed our bags, called Future Cab (our new go-to long-distance hauler) and drove to Riverhead and the Hertz rental office in the Indigo Hotel. We picked up our Toyota Camry and we were off on Route 25, past the familiar vineyards, farmstands and charming houses.

Lazy Girl was driving. She's a good driver on the two lane roads, considering that she only drives once a year. Richard acted as extra eyes and ears. I (that's me, Lazy Girl) do tend to go through stop signs.

When we arrived at our rental house, the same one that we had last year, we had hardly a moment to unpack because we were going to a party which started at 5. It was the annual Oysterponds Historical Society Summer Benefit, held in the delightful Poquatuck Park with its backdrop of ample green laws and views to Peconic Bay.

My outfit for the evening:
a fedora of my own design and
a favorite Tucker blouse.
 The Benefit affords the opportunity to
stock up on some local art works at
the silent auction.
