We went to see The Big Duck! It is a minor tourist attraction on Long Island. You can walk inside and there is always someone there to tell you about the duck's history. There are lots of pictures and you can buy duck souvenirs there too. Around Christmastime, they have a duck lighting (around the same time as the Rockefeller Center tree lighting) and lots of people go there to see the "duck lighting". We have not ever been there for the lighting but maybe this year!
The Big Duck sign...in case you miss seeing the big duck though you won't because The Big Duck is BIG!!!
The Big Duck in all its glory!

We went to see the Riverhead Raceway Muffler Man...the big Indian. He was damaged less than a month after this picture was taken when Hurricane Sandy broke him in half at the waist. He has been fixed and he stands proudly once again.
He welcomes all to the raceway!
We listened carefully...we think he said "How"!
We stumbled across this abandoned place a few miles away with some really cool vehicles, dragons and a few oddities.
A giant bed made of Birch Trees!
A giant dragon!
Another giant dragon!
A very cool ice cream truck
We were not sure what this vehicle was supposed to be!

A giant wooden teepee located in Center Moriches. It was made in 1890.

We saw this really cool sign for a Bait & Tackle Shop while walking around Center Moriches.
The Modern Snack Bar in Aquebogue. We love the neon sign!
Another view of the sign. We did not have roast duck, flounder OR cool mint mojitos.
The Modern Snack Bar has been around since 1950
Dinner finished and both of us were full! It was a great day together!
