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!

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!

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.

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.

The Bayport Heritage Association and the Suffolk County Department of Parks invite the public to their annual Christmas at Meadow Croft event.
Meadow Croft is the 1891 estate of John E. Roosevelt and family. The house will be decorated in a Victorian/Edwardian motif with beautiful wreathes, poinsettias and greenery, magnificently reminiscent of a hundred years ago.
Reflecting the theme of “The Music of Christmas” musical selections will be played on the original Roosevelt grand piano filling the house with seasonal music.
· Hot chocolate and cookies will add to the coziness of the occasion.
· St. Nicholas, the Dutch version of Santa Claus, will be there to look up individual children’s names in his ledger. He’ll check to see who’s been ‘naughty and nice’ in 2014.
· All decorations will be raffled off.
