Sound Shore at Depot Lane

A low sun at seven thirty last Friday cast a golden glow on a sand dune with it's weathered trees to the west and on the flat sandy beach to the east, the start of a beautiful, quiet evening.

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.

Northville Beach, Riverhead

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.
