Who needs Provence? Walk the fields during peak summertime bloom at Lavender by the Bay in East Marion and — thanks to a heady breeze blowing off the water — you’ll be transported across the pond. It’s the Island’s only farm dedicated to growing the sweet-smelling plants. Pick a bunch ($8) to take home (they’ll give you a wicker basket and a sickle) or choose from more than a dozen varieties of potted wonders so you can cultivate your own slice of France. $8 entry fee during bloom time is applied to purchase.
