Grace and I took a drive out to eastern Long Island to visit Briermere Farms in Riverhead. They had the most delicious homemade cookies and apple cider. We bought some scones and oatmeal cookies for the road and quickly headed back into the car to hide from the wind. Despite the cloudy skies, it was really nice out for a mid-March day. Along the way out further east, we stopped by an empty off-season Patty's Berries & Bunches stand and roamed the property. We ended our trip in Riverhead with a walk across Hashamomuck Beach with its beautiful purple sand.
