I went flying today!
Yes! Just to take photos.
Here is Fire Island, looking west toward New York City. You can see the Robert Moses Bridge and Causeway as well as the Great South Bay and Captree Island.

This photo was taken last year on this date. I remember the day. We had very similar weather here on Long Island. The air is crisp and the sky is clear....a beautiful early autumn day!

Trish and Oliver
The last boating days are here as we enter the month of October.
The days are colder and daylight hours, shorter.
Today, Sunday, it is raining here on Long Island. :-(
Of course there will still be fishing days this month and next, which is a totally different "ball game" all together.
On social boating days like the photo above, you cruise out into the bay, eat some snacks, feel the warm sunshine on your face and socialize.
You can smell the fresh air and watch a few boats go by.
Sometimes when boating we would cruise over to Fire Island, just three miles across the Great South Bay.
There, we can get off the boat and take a walk along the sandy ocean shore.
But on "fishing days" which are possible even in cold weather, you wear warm clothing and jackets and hats, and fish!
...and you hope you catch something.
While you are fishing, you watch other boats to see if they are catching anything!
So, these are two entirely different experiences.
With both you enjoy the fresh air and sea breezes. You get away from the house and the chores and have a pleasant day.
Me? I like both.
I like being on the water and enjoying the fresh air and sunshine, whether I'm socializing or fishing, whether it's cold or hot or in-between.
It just is a great way to spend a day!
Hmm, I don't like boating in the rain though, which is why I'm home on the computer writing this right now!
Hope you have a great day today, whatever you do!
