Long Island visit

I grew up on the beaches of Long Island New York thinking that all those shorebirds were just Seagulls…yeah I know they had different colors and were different sizes, but I just figured they were old or young, not fully grown etc. I go back to LI every summer to visit my kids, my childhood friend and THE BEACH! This is my first trip back since discovering my fascination with birds, learning about them and identifying them….who knew there were all kinds of gulls 🙂
Monday morning I drove to Robert Moses State Park to watch the sunrise and work on decompressing…if this doesn’t relax you, nothing will!

There will be more to come, I’ll close today with the Fire Island Light house. Happy to see all the repairs are completed from Hurricane Sandy.
