A quick boat ride on the Great South Bay to watch the sunset. It's still a little cool on the water but summer is not too far away! It was just nice to be out there!

Weather, originally uploaded by Alida's Photos.

Think of the storm roaming the sky uneasily
like a dog looking for a place to sleep in,
listen to it growling.

-Elizabeth Bishop (1911-1979), U.S. poet

Living on the river keeps me connected to the changes in weather. A minor drop in temperature, a sudden appearance of clouds, an increase of wind is always obvious and can't be ignored.

I rarely listen to a weather report. All I have to do is step outside, feel, smell, and experience the air .

Beautiful sunset on the Great South Bay.
Now if the rain will only stop, we can all get back on the water!

It's so wonderful to see these large birds coming back to Long Island. It seems that every town has their osprey family nesting high on the tree tops.
