Well, today's post is not about her, but it is about a Marion and a happy day. Her name is East Marion, and she resides on the eastern upper fork tip of Long Island, NY. She is a quaint and sleepy little village sandwiched between the Long Island Sound, Great Peconic Bay, and the Atlantic Ocean. She's a must to visit place, whether driving out to, or ferrying over to from Connecticut. It's a lazy days of summer sweet spot.
I had the pleasure of driving out there a few days ago to enjoy a very special birthday gift I received from my sister earlier in the year. I scheduled this blissful day at the very tail end of my winter slumber. My hectic gardening season has arrived, and I won't be stealing any pampering moments for quite some time.

This Inn is "quaintessential" as well. Sylvia gave me a sneak peak at the grounds, though at this time of year they have not yet awaken from winter hibernation. I can't imagine how lovely the garden beds must look in the summer - a perfect wedding day setting, perhaps?
So, if you happen to be traveling in this direction one day, or if you local folks need a little "staycation", be sure to say "hello" to East Marion. And, Sylvia, too.
