Now and then: NORMAN ROCKWELL's "Closing a summer beach house" (1957) depicts A FAMILY PACKING UP AT THEIR SHINGLEd COTTAGE ON DUNE ROAD. TODAY, THE ranch REMAINS, AND HAS BEEN RESTORED BY ITS CURRENT OWNERS. JUST AS CHARMING. 

the perfect transitional outfit: a flowy floral print silk crepe dress PAIRED WITH COMFORTABLE CANVAS KICKS AND a spritz of "Waterlily sun".  

QUOGUE CLUB HAS BEEN THE TOWN'S MAINSTAY SINCE 1828.
