After Labor Day

Going to the beach after Labor Day in the Northeast is a privilege and/or a gamble. This year, Long Island has had temperatures in the low to mid-70s, with low humidity and a fresh breeze. Not beach weather for most people! The life guards have gone, and swimming is discouraged if not forbidden on many ocean beaches. But wet-suited surfers wait off shore for a good wave; some people still sit on the sand and grab some rays, but more families now walk the beaches than sit on them…

Summer Sunday at the Beach

Mid-July, 85 degrees, Sunday afternoon. What better than a trip to the beach! Long Island offers 50+ miles of Atlantic ocean beaches, and for those who like quieter water, Long Island Sound on the Island’s north shore.
