Last weekend my husband and I took a ride out East to Sag Harbor. It is a very quaint old town with a beautiful harbor that is rich in history.
This is the Sag Harbor - North Haven Bridge. You drive over this bridge to get in and out of the area.
Once you get over the bridge you can either go left to the harbor or right into the town. We decided togo into the town first. This monument was in town and was in honor of some civil upsets at this harbor. So I looked the info up on line and this is some of the history of the town.
The Village has also contributed to the history of the various wars that were fought on American soil and abroad. The Revolutionary War saw the British set up strong garrisons and naval blockades preventing the Port of Sag Harbor from sending supplies to the American Army. Many of the residents had fled to Connecticut and those that remained suffered tremendous losses as they were robbed, plundered and forced to feed and house the soldiers of the Crown. On May 21, 1777, Colonel Return Jonathan Meigs, under the command of General Parsons, set off to surprise the British troops in Sag Harbor by making a swift attach and destroying the supplies held by them. This was accomplished in just 25 hours without any casualties to his men. After the close of the war, the majority of those living in exile returned home to pick up the pieces of their shattered lives.
A Gallery, I loved the way this looked

Walking down towards the harbor.
Some great antique chairs.
Down at the harbor we saw the Intuition 11. This is the personal vessel of the owner of the Sag Harbor Yacht club.
Right next to this harbor is a great fish restaurant, we stopped for a shrimp lunch and took our food outside to some benches while we enjoyed looking at the yachts.
An old windmill which was the entrance to the beach area.
Before heading back to the car, I just had to get some shots of this cool Bistro. It was hard to tell if they were just closed that day or if they were out of business. But I loved the look of the place.
It is a wonderful place to spend a summer afternoon.
That is my tour of this part of Sag Harbor, Long Island, New York. Thank you for viewing.
