The first full week of summer has flown by and the North Fork is all abuzz. So stop and take time to look around at what summer has to offer in between the sounds of sizzling barbecue grills and the jingle of the Mister Softee truck coming down the block.

I took some time this week to take in the scenery before this busy holiday weekend started. I suggest you do the same and smile!
