Wineries, Golf, and Sun :)

Hey y'all! I hope everyone had a great Father's Day. I know I did.  

Last week I had a somewhat eventful weekend compared to my the rest of my days since I returned from across the pond.

My days at home have consisted of One Tree Hill and job searching. I don't have any money so I don't even like to go out and waste gas until I get a job. My family thinks I've been a lazy a** and don't understand my method of preserving the few dollars I still have to my name. I've had a bunch of interviews this past week so fingers crossed that something comes my way soon cause I could use some fun adventures. 

Sorry about my tangent, back to the original point of this post. Last weekend my dad did some fun things so I took advantage of this to tag along. My sister had to go out east (for you non Long Islanders, out east means the east end of Long Island and usually the north fork) for her summer camp orientation and the rest of us decided to spend a gorgeous day driving around the beautiful north fork.

We saw a bunch of dream houses and went antiquing in Greenport. Boy wouldn't I love a house out there on the water. I'll just buy one with my next pay check, nbd. We stopped for some clams and wine at Claudio's, a Greenport favorite. After we went to one of the many wineries in the area for some live music and good wine :)

Before we picked my sister back up we stopped at a goat farm to pick up some fresh goat cheese. The farm had an unofficial petting zoo. We made friends with all of the baby goats and a pony. They also let the public watch the goats getting milked. This was no one person sitting on a bucket slowing milking each goat. They had an efficient system going and only need one farmer to milk EIGHT goats at a time! Pretty impressive. I really have no idea why I was so interested in the goat milking...weird, I know.

By then Kiersten's orientation was over and we headed back west to pick up my grandma and get sushi for dinner. 

The next day we lucked out with another beautiful day. We spent Sunday washing all the cars and then headed to the driving range. I knew I didn't golf for a reason. I was not very good at it.

All in all it was a great weekend with great people and a nice break from Netflix and job hunting.
