Grateful to be back in New York spending time with my elderly parents. Equally grateful to take long walks at Jones Beach. I love the winter shore.
The third post from a recent trip to New York, when I took a long hike on the West End of Jones Beach on a cold, windy, winter day. Thanks for stopping by!
This post could also be called, “variations on a theme.” I got out by 5:00 am and enjoyed chasing the sunrise along the shore. The ocean waves were singing, the sky was just dancing… a beautiful start to the day…
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.
A Memorial Day sunrise in Lake Worth, Florida.
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.
The spring weather in Illinois and in New York has been more like a crazy mash-up of Fall with a touch of Winter: lots of cold rain and gray skies. During my recent trip to New York a beautiful, sunny, bright day made an appearance that coincided with a last minute decision to go to the end of the island. So glad I did.
Definitely too cold for a swim, and too cold for my feet! Perhaps in the summer.
We drove from Chicago to New York to surprise my parents on their 59th wedding anniversary and, to enjoy Thanksgiving with them, and, of course, to go to the shore.
