Browns River, looking south to the Great South Bay. This is considered a watershed area and protected by the DEC. There is still areas of Long Island that are relatively undeveloped and natural to protect our water supply. Thank the environmentalists and government agencies for protecting our watershed areas and keeping things natural for our enjoyment!

Fire Island, bayside

This is the bayside of Fire Island, at the Sunken Forest.

September and October are the best months on Fire Island, in my opinion, because the summer crowds are gone and the weather still beautiful. It is quiet except for the sound of the ocean waves and birds, long gone are the many boats heading to the beach. An occassional plane or helicopter passes overhead. It is warm between the dunes and a long walk is the perfect way to spend the day!

Went to visit family in Wisconsin.
Didn't know the Great Lakes could look like the ocean. New information for me! This is Lake Michigan on a mildly windy day. Waves, rocks, driftwood...It looked just like the Atlantic Ocean!
