Since I spent my summers here as a child, we’ve come back to see how much things have changed. The good news, like most of Eastern Long Island, is that much is the same. Cutchogue Harbor, a narrow cut off Little Peconic Bay, features a small marina, now owned by the New Suffolk Shipyard nearby. Clean, neat and cozy, it has a fuel dock, laundry, restrooms and showers. I can still remember swimming off the docks as a kid and am delighted to see that my grandfather’s home across the street looks as good as it did in the 50s. We meet a local couple and ask them if the Cutchogue Diner, two miles from here, still exists, and they offer us a ride there in the morning for breakfast. After a hearty morning meal the next day, we take a stroll along Main Road and return to the marina to continue our exploration of Eastern Long Island.
