- It is wonderful to see corn! We have had rain drowning the midwest this year, so, it is so good to finally see cornfields…. with corn!
- It is wonderful to ride!
- Wind farms are so cool!
The farmers in our area have had a really tough time this spring/summer. We have received unprecedented amounts of rain over the past 4 months! They have not been able to plant, and the yield this year is going to be very light. Normally, these fields are filled with tall corn, and beautiful, deep green, soybean plants. Still, love the beauty of the Midwest, and love riding!
This was taken near the end of my walk around the Montauk Point Lighthouse. Along the right edge of the image you can make out the “road” that was made when these giant boulders were laid along the shore to protect it from erosion.
What I didn’t expect to see at the end of my walk were these stone markers along the edge of the sea. Suddenly I felt like I was in some kind of sacred space where each of these represented a story or some kind of memorial.
I was alone in this field of small stone towers…
I wonder if there are any still living who possess the creativity, artistry, and craftsmanship represented by these Fresnel lenses. They are truly magnificent!
Next post (I promise): we start climbing!

Let’s bring back Art Deco! Part of the charm and beauty of Jones Beach is the beautiful buildings and bath houses in the Art Deco style. The Landing is a restaurant at Jones Beach.
