My husband, Rob, and I took a day trip out to Lavender By the Bay for our anniversary last month. I haven’t had as many opportunities as I would like to take photos recently but I think this one is fairly pretty. If you are ever out on the east end of Long Island, you should definitely check out Lavender By the Bay. The smell of the lavender fields is heavenly and you can go out and pick your own bouquet of lavender.
I had a lot of fun photographing the lavender but at the same time I didn’t want to stay too long. In addition to their lavender fields, Lavender by the Bay has some beehives, populated by bees making lavender honey and I am massively allergic to bees. I have never had a problem – the bees seem so drunk on all the lavender pollen that they barely seem to notice you are there – but I get nervous just the same.
