Long Island Traveling & Wee Care Gowns

Before we set off on another trip (this one to Long Island to spend with our daughter, son-in-law and his family during Christmas) I whipped up two Wee Care gowns and one bonnet to smock on the flights. I can accomplish so much when zipping through the air, or sitting around waiting for the next flight. Here they are:
We had a wonderful time in Long Island visiting with our son-in-law's family. We toured two wineries on the north end of the island. Beautiful agricultural area and pretty houses. Then we toured the William Vanderbilt's Eagles Nest Mansion and Museum in Centerport, Long Island.
It was beautiful and very interesting. William basically traveled the world collecting all sorts of specimens. They are housed in several areas and buildings of the museum. My husband is reading information about William's famous ship 'The Alma' and admiring the model of it in one of those rooms.
The outside courtyard gate is reminiscent of a Spanish or Italian villa.
And the gate where you enter is also unique. You can see the Long Island Sound on the left: there are beautiful water views from several of the rooms in the house. 
It was a wonderful trip seeing Tim's family again, and seeing interesting sites and towns of Long Island!
