Fire Island National Seashore

Watch Hill Panorama

The Watch Hill, Fire Island National Seashore

Just take the ferry from Patchogue. Free Parking!

If you haven't come here this summer, it's time to fit it in your schedule before the school days arrive.
There are walking trails, the beach, and the marina to explore. 
Spend the day and see what Long Island has to offer right in our own backyard!

Deer on Fire Island

Deer in the Dunes

Too many deer on Fire Island, they say.
 I saw family of deer everyday this past month.
They roamed through the towns and dunes. Some people are seen feeding them!
They were covered with ticks!
Don't feed the deer!

Rainy Days, Long Island

umbrella in Quito

When was the last time we had rain like this?
I can't even remember, but my trees are happy!
The dry summer had some of the trees looking wilted and brown.
I hope this perks them up and prepares them for the winter ahead.

Summer at the Beach

Swim Flags

I really think Long Island has the BEST beaches!
Where can you find such beautiful white, soft sand and no crowds?

Bryan's Bridge is finished!

Bryan's Bridge

It has taken a long time, but the bridge construction is finally finished.
The photo above is the old bridge. The area was flooding, the road was uneven.
Cement was crumbling and water was eroding the supporting structure.
There was debris under the bridge too, as many kayak and canoe users found out.

After almost two years, the work is done. The bridge was raised, drainage was added.
A new road surface is now in place. It was a big job involving cranes and heavy machinery.
Living in the area, it became inconvenient to drive that way, but it's over and done!
I hope the people who decorated the bridge (Sayville Garden Club?) each December, do so again.
