We spent a few days upstate with our one-time neighbors. The buns were on the lawn outside of our motel. On the way home, we stopped at our new (and only) Welcome Center on the Long Island Expressway. It features a replica of the Montauk Lighthouse and a whale out front. Inside, it offers local products and foods of Long Island, with a café. There's also an inlaid map of the Island, with well-known sites highlighted with golden hearts and golden letters. (If these pics come out upside down again, I don't know why and I don't know how to fix them).
My brother has friends in WA state who have a cabin way up in a National Park (grandfathered in). They have electricity, running water (always running, coming from a pipe fed into a stream on the hill); they heat it by running it through a pipe in the wood stove. It's very peaceful and can be handed down to their children some day. We cooked planked salmon over a bed of wet alder leaves that we picked ourselves.
