Enjoyed greeting the new day at Jones Beach with my dear dad.
These are images from a recent road trip back to New York. We (my wife and I) made the trip to attend a memorial service and decided to head back to visit the area where we lived during our college days. We visited Briarcliff Manor, Tarrytown and Ossining, NY, and thoroughly enjoyed our trip down memory lane.
Regarding the images: ‘GW Bridge’ is short for the George Washington Bridge, connecting New Jersey and Manhattan. We take the Whitestone Bridge to go from the Bronx to Long Island. We enjoyed lunch at Horsefeathers, and the view of the amazing Tappan Zee Bridge, which connects Tarrytown, NY to Nyack, NY. The homes in Tarrytown and Ossining were 2 of the places we lived in after we were married while in college. It was fun taking in the sights of these old, beautiful towns!
Soul distancing: the practice of separating your soul from the day to day rush the deadline driven exhaustion the anxiety saturated social media the identity robbing expense of living for someone's approval the heart hardening fallout of unforgiveness the countless heart deadening diversions and instead connecting to whatever it is that helps you to s l o w d o w n a walk on the shore... a hike... sitting in stillness... prayer... coffee and a good book... you may discover what you are really living for and decide to change course you may discover what you really worship and decide to reach higher in the affections of your heart and mind you may discover an ocean of tears that were held back by your hardness becasue you need to be right or you won't let it go or you refuse to forgive or because you know you need to confess and make it right you may discover in the stillness the voice of God
It’s wonderful to see the Jones Beach boardwalk come to life as New York slowly exits out of pandemic social restrictions.
I really should stop in and eat here some time instead of just taking exterior photos! 🙂 Thanks for stopping by!
Enjoying the view at Jones Beach.
New York officially “opens” today, so, this water element at the beach will soon be filled with kids, and….. water! Thanks for stopping by!
The first of a few posts during my trip back to my home town in New York, which always means time spent enjoying walks at Jones Beach State Park in New York. Thanks for stopping by.
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!
Back to my recent trip to New York for the next few posts. Just love the wind, the clouds, the endless waves and the distant edge of the sea...
