American Dream Fulfilled: A Week at the Shore
My blog is off to Fire Island National Seashore in New York State now, to enjoy Ocean Beach pre-Sandy. My family shared a house the third week of September. The water was great, warmer than the air. It was a little tough getting into the water because the air wasn't hot, and once in, it was tough getting out, because the wind chill made our wet bodies even colder. Then it was time for a hot outdoor shower.
The living room of the house we rented. My darling Mom was surprised by my picture-taking.
The wind scattered the first leaves of autumn on the deck.
The view toward the ocean. Only a small dune (the little bump at the end of the sidewalk) separated the houses from the ocean.
Looks pretty placid, right? I've heard that Sandy wreaked tremendous damage to the island.
A house similar to ours, near the ocean in September. Where is the house now? How about you? How many days were you without power?
