Just love visiting my elderly parents in New York and, going to my happy place…
What may appear to be an unfinished project, is actually a gigantic high ropes and challenge course recently completed and opened at Jones Beach called, Wild Play. It certainly changes the look of the park, but, I can’t wait to give it a try!
We leave the east coast of Long Island for the east coast of Florida. Specifically the next few posts will be from another trip we took in May to the sunshine state. First stop, Delray Beach.
It’s hard not to make blue your favorite color in Florida.
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…
Back to Long Island and Montauk Point Lighthouse for today’s post. On the north and south side of the lighthouse you can walk down to the shore, as you can see in the image above. When I turned to take this image I noticed the large rocks in front of the lighthouse featured a shelf – like a path – in between the two sloping sections of rock. I thought to myself, “I don’t see any signs… so…”
So, I started walking around the lighthouse. It was low tide, so I was grateful to stay dry while at the same time wondering what it would be like to walk around the lighthouse at high tide!
It was a short, but beautiful walk with the mighty Atlantic Ocean filling my view. Thanks for stopping by.

This image, and the next more than a few posts, will be from my recent trip to Long Island, and time spent exploring the end of the island, known as, Montauk Point. This was taken as I walked around the perimeter of the lighthouse. More on that lighthouse soon. Thanks for stopping by.
We all need it sometimes. (Click the image for a larger view.)
