To the Water

After weeks of quarantine, we have started taking short car trips to the beaches nearby, simply sitting by the water in our car and enjoying the sun and the sea! What a refreshing experience! Long Island’s north and south shores have seen a lot of visitors recently, as we all await the lifting of restrictions on gathering on beaches or in parks. Meanwhile it’s good to breathe in cool ocean air!

North shore: Iron Pier Beach, Northville

South Shore: Blue Point Fishing Pier, Great South Bay

 

 

The Bays

Moriches Bay on LI’s South Shore, eastern neighbor of the Great South Bay, protected by Fire Island. Part of the lagoon and barrier island coast that stretches from Cape Cod to Florida.

40 years ago, LI Bays provided half the US clam harvest and work for thousands of people. Not now.
