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.

End of Summer

Sunflower Rows

This is the time of year for sunflowers, and there is always a sad feeling knowing that summer is coming to an end.

Fishing off Long Island

Jenna Lynn II

The Jenna Lynn II, out of Connecticut, is fishing off the shores of Long Island.
We took a sailing adventure to Block Island and saw this on our return.
The gulls racing over us in the sky were the first clue that something was happening ahead. 
We soon saw the Jenna Lynn II!

Ocean Buoy

buoy 10 bklyn

One of the many ocean buoys along Long Island heading west.
This one, #10, is off Brooklyn, which is technically part of our "long" island. 
This was shot before "hurricane" Sandy so this view is very different today. 
The area was flooded and many homes were washed away.

D-Day, June 6th, 1944

vic cortner 

 Do not forget the invasion of Normandy, 1944. 
The men who were there, lived with that traumatic experience their entire lives. 
They are now in their 90s, if they have not yet died of old age, but the memories of June 6th are burned in their hearts and minds and will never be forgotten.
