Dawn Comes to Wickham's Creek

It was early and the birds hadn't yet risen to their song.   The long low rays of the sun began to appear over the ridge of Nassau Point to the east and painted golden edges on all before it.  A bit of breeze worked against an ebbing tide as a few leaves drifted by.  Let the day begin.  The stage is set... Act I.


And from a drive last week that took us through Aquebogue, a photo of a mobile home.

A Fine Saturday - March 20, 2010 - Spring

 -- and then one dawn the sky is clear and blue forever...  the sun is not just light but warmth.  The snow drops hang their white blossoms as if a little ashamed of their precious beauty.

As our hemisphere comes out of it's hibernation in the timelessness of it all, what is the number of this some billionth Spring that is today?   I wouldn't have wanted to miss this one.   Happy Spring, Judy, and all my friends out there.

Evening comes to the Mattituck Inlet

A low sun sets whelk shards aglow

First Picnic of the Year

We stopped at a Sound Beach in East Marion.  The sky was so clear and blue.  The sun seemed to pick out every pebble and stone and gave each one it's own place.  Across the road on Oyster Ponds the little boat house and crab shack seemed to have settled more than we'd remembered while on the calm Sound gulls gathered by the dozens in a Saturday flotilla.  Before long an SUV pulled up near us.  A mother and her five kids got out, opened up the back and pulled out everything they'd need for a picnic on the beach.  It was still cold, in the very low 40s and there was some wind to add to the chill but none of that dampened their spirits.  The picnic basket was opened and they got right to it hunkered down in a bit of low place.  Soon done they chased each other around laughing for a few minutes then loaded it back in and were gone just like that.  What a wonderful way for them to make a memory of March 6, 2010.
