A Ford Woodie; Rita's Rest, West Sayville


Scene at the Sayville parking lot on a summer evening where everyone stops by to take a look at the Great South Bay.
Hot night, hazy sky and some after-dinner "hanging out" with friends.

This old car (plate says 1948) is a Ford "woodie" station wagon.
It also has a plate that says, "Rita's Rest" from West Sayville, NY, but I could not find anything searching google with that reference.

Oliver and the Camera

Little Oliver just loves the camera.
He likes to look through the lens and to see his reflection....and he likes to put his little fingers on the glass. Ugh!
Here is the scene as seen from my husband's point of here!

Deer on Fire Island at the Fire Island National Seashore


No picnic on Fire Island is complete without a visit from the deer.

As soon as the crowds leave and the sun gets lower in the sky, the deer "hunt" for food at the picnic tables.

Don't touch!

Their ears are covered with deer tick!
