I love the feel of a small town. The kind where people say hello, offer a kind smile. Sometimes in the hustle and bustle of City life, smiles are only given when paid for.
Cold Spring Harbor is not of those places. It is quaint and lovely. The smell of fresh air and small shops aligned down a long stretch of road gives a feel of a town with some real history. Which it does.
This fire house was the town’s first fire house, chosen in 1896!
This lovely fire truck has a working horn and, yes I got to honk the horn!
The town’s first ‘fire truck’ used in the days before the civil war! The men used to pull this bad boy by hand. Incredible.
After our history lesson, we did what any girl would do..shop!
I purchased this lovely print after reading its beautiful quote. This is great gift for someone going through a difficult time and a great reminder to live life to its fullest.
A similar print can also be found here: ‘Living Life’
I also popped into this adorable little shop..
Had some lovely cookies..they also offer some tasty jams.
Who wouldn’t want to visit Cold Spring Harbor?
