Earlier this January we hopped in the car on a very cold but sunny day to see if hurricane Sandy had done any damage to Goldsmith's Inlet Park and to the inlet itself. Though there was considerable damage in many places on the north shore of the Long Island Sound this nearly pristine spot was unscathed, the timeless tide gently flowing to the sea. Late Spring finds fly fishermen casting on the outgoing tide for striped bass and blue fish. During the summer months the park is busy. Many families with young children come to picnic and splash about in the safe, shallow waters

The fog comes
on little cat feet
It sits looking
over harbor and city
on silent haunches
and then moves on.
Not long ago I awoke to one of the softest mornings I can recall. Fog had come in during the night so thick that I couldn't see where my backyard meets the orchard. In fact, I really couldn't see much of anything at all. The thought occurred to me, now is the time to take some photographs! By the time I reached the Cutchogue Harbor Marina it was beginning to slowly lift, muting sound, wrapping me in it's warm blanket.
This marks the fourth anniversary of
From The North Fork.

Last week during one of our exploratory drives we came upon Northville Beach on the Shore of Long Island Sound between Hallocks Pond and Jacobs Point. Pier Avenue runs straight to Luce Landing from Rt. 48, Sound Avenue, ending at water's edge. It was deserted being the last week of the year and quite cold but beautiful in the light of the lowering golden sun, the daylight slightly longer than the day before as the shadows lengthened.
With these photos I bid you a Happy and Peaceful New Year.
