How to Celebrate while Social Distancing
Take a walk, hike, or bike ride outside
One of the best things about living on the East End is how many amazing places there are to explore! With all of the time we are currently spending at home, this is a great opportunity to get out of the house and stretch your legs for a bit. (Pro Tip: go early in the morning or at dusk to avoid the crowds)
A few great North Fork hikes to explore are the Hallock State Park Preserve, Laurel Lake Preserve, Downs Farm Preserve, Inlet Pond County Park, and one of the most popular destination hiking spots, Mashomack Preserve on Shelter Island.
Go on a family picnic
Looking to make this Mother's Day a little extra memorable? With the beautiful Spring weather here to stay why not pack up a few of your favorite brunch foods or pickup takeout , grab a bottle of wine, and take Mom on a family picnic! Head over to the beach, the backyard, or your favorite quiet spot for a memorable Mother's Day picnic!
Don't forget the adult beverages! A picnic is nothing without a beverage, so pickup a bottle or one of our new canned wine 4-packs for easy packing and cleanup.
Plant Mom a Garden
With the temperatures rising and the beautiful weather here to stay, one of our annual Mother's Day traditions is planting the garden! This is a great way to enjoy the sunshine and get something productive done that you will all be able to enjoy in the months ahead! Pickup a few herbs and vegetable plants from a local nursery and get your hands dirty! Whether you're planting an outdoor garden in the backyard or potting a few herbs into a windowsill herb garden, this is a gift Mom is sure to appreciate!
Spend the day on the water
With the temperatures rising and the summer just around the corner why not spend your day on or by the water?
Lucky enough to have a boat? Spend the day sailing, paddling or cruising about the sound!
Looking to stay a little closer to home and entertain the kiddos? Grab a shovel, a blanket, and some snacks and head down to the beach to soak up a little Vitamin D and relax the day away!
No matter how you celebrate, we're wishing a very happy Mother's Day to all of the wonderful women, mothers, and mother figures out there—cheers to you!
