Ok I’m realizing my blog is becoming about the constantly changing temperatures here but COME ON! We’ve gone from snow storm to sudden 70 degree spring day so it’s definitely worth mentioning, right? When I look at my previous post and see all that snow, and then realize that I’m about to post some “trips to the beach images”, I’m reminded of how crazy this Feb weather really has been.
But more importantly: we’ve found a new beach. We drove to the Fire Island Lighthouse after a friend recommended this hike to the shore via the more inland parking lot area. And what a nice surprise this all was! We spotted deer who lingered just 10 feet from the path, and learned that our new rescue dog (who hails from Nebraska) is as in love with the sea as we are! The only downside: we were NOT the only ones with this brilliant idea – the beach was backed with other beach combers in late Feb! Go figure..
