I am having a wonderful time being back home in New York (specifically, East Meadow, NY) visiting my parents and family. My mom and dad still live in the house I grew up in and I love coming “home” to love on them and enjoy them. I also love the shore, especially Jones Beach. I think this is the 7th image that I have posted of the Jones Beach water tower. The next few posts will be from my time back home with my dear parents, in my childhood house on Long Island, near my favorite place to be: the shore.
Another shot from my recent trip to NY. This is the rest of the tower featured in the previous post. My dad and my son patiently waited while I walked around this tower and took a bunch of shots. It was a beautiful day to be on the shore!
Well, my last trip home to New York has resulted in a series of images of this water tower, and the beach. I have a couple more of the shore to post, but for now, the water tower wins the draw. My parents still live in the house I grew up in, so going home is always a wonderful experience. Jones Beach State Park is a big part of my growing up years, and, I will never tire of the shore and this cool structure. That’s my story and I’m sticking to it.
Here is the Jones Beach Water Tower. You can see the stone structures at the bottom that house the lights that were in my previous post. I have an abiding love and heart for the shore, and, the memories that I have of growing up around this beach. This beautiful tower (it actually is a functioning water tower) is representative of the art deco design featured throughout the bath houses and other structures of Jones Beach.
