Art in the Park this Saturday…

If you are in the Northport Area on Saturday, come down to the park and say hello. I'll be setting up a booth at the Northport Arts Coalition Saturday in the Park. It is my only show of this type this summer. Hope to see you. Linda

Worldwide Photo Walk—Northport Version…

Yesterday was the World Wide Photo Walk, and over thirty photography enthusiasts spent the late morning hours in the Village of Northport, taking photos, exchanging ideas, and generally having a great time. I am really glad I decided to volunteer to lead a walk in Northport. The photographers who signed up couldn't have been nicer, the weather was perfect, and everyone had the opportunity to shoot some really good photogaphs.

We met at the gazebo in the park and before heading out we posed for a group photo. Thanks to Leon for suggesting the vantage point for the photograph!

The stroller at the top right of the photograph belongs to Hunter, our youngest PhotoWalker.
First stop, Northport Harbor, the docks, and the Saturday morning, Farmers' Market. Here Anthony gets up close and personal with the harbor.

The owners of Seymour's Boat Yard, a Northport Landmark, were gracious enough to allow PhotoWalkers to enter their property and document Northport's maritime roots.
The walk continued along Bayview Avenue and included a stop at the home of friends of mine who were kind enough to offer their beautiful garden and harbor view to the PhotoWalkers. More than a few photographers did not want to leave the beauty of the backyard.
Next to last stop on PhotoWalk was Main street.
After meandering up and down Main Street, we met at Copenhagen Bakery for a bit of relaxation and lunch. When Fleming Hansen, the owner of Copenhagen, heard about the PhotoWalk, he immediately offered a discount to group members who stopped for lunch after the walk. Thanks so much, Fleming. Everyone loved the food!
Thanks to everyone who participated for a wonderful day. We have started a Flickr group — to view photos taken by some of the other PhotoWalkers, visit

How to get to Northpot…

Did you know that the original name for Northport Village was Cow Harbor?

Above is a map showing the layout of Nothport Village. For directions, use the map below, which links to Google Maps. Click on the A in the marker and use the link to find directions, or click on the words VIEW LARGER MAP underneath the map. The link will take you directly to Google Maps. Entering your starting point will give you directions to the harbor area of Northport Village (I used the address for Hengstenberg's Florist, which is the Main Street store closest to the Park).

Northport PhotoWalk Saturday…

This Saturday, July 18, is the WorldWide Photo Walk, and I am thrilled to be leading a walk in Northport Village. I thought I'd share a few Northport photos to set the mood.

The Northport PhotoWalk participants are meeting at the Gazebo at 9:30 A.M.
