But on my first trip to Suffolk County I discovered the beauties of the North Shore in the charming village of Seatucket, which has some distinguished architecture.
A post office that is both dignified and domestic.
And Frank Melville Memorial Park – a tranquil private park in the village center.
The park has beautiful expanses of paths, trees, and ponds
A refreshing bamboo forest
And sunning turtles
The north shore’s beauty cannot be eradicated by the tacky houses, and it is enhanced by Frank Melville’s legacy.
