We had such a great time that we decided to return on the weekend.  So glad we did.. the good weather and fun wouldn’t stop:

Once again we tripped off to Bridgehampton Barn – and right in the middle of the hurricane week.  Somehow shockingly we got a day of sun and strange misty, foggy weather.  We love going to this beach – where we married – to toss bread crumbs or do ‘tashlich‘ for the High Holidays.  I wrote about tashlich for my synagogue’s newsletter this year, because it’s a special tradition that me and the family like to do on Rosh Hashanah.  It’s especially nice to do it at the beach – a pensive place when all the tourists are away, as they tend to be gone when September comes around.   This 2 day break was really restorative!

Ezra pulled this bench to this spot, and felt inspired to draw!

I’m kind of overwhelmed with how quickly the kids are growing.  I don’t know if I’ve ever written that before – but especially now that Ezra approaches age 12 in August: there seems to be so much more responsibility coming around the bend.  He’s already talking about High Schools to apply to, and we are running into his friends moving around on their own on the NYC subway system.  (I am close to letting him get to Time’s Square for camp each day on his own, but just cannot bring myself to it yet.  It’s great to have theater camp there, but it’s also a known fact that all the strangest New Yorkers are walking around that area of town – in case you are ever acting as tourist there and wondering about this..)

When we went to the beach on 4th July, the kids made dinner for us, and then cleaned up the house before we left.  I’m shocked to see that even all the ‘toddlers on the lake’ in Cornwall are suddenly seeming like teenagers !

Even Zoe moves around on her own lately.  We gave her a few dollars for the Cornwall rummage sale and let her roam freely to shop for a few hours with a friend.  She found a very excellent twin version of Louie for just a dollar!

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 packed with other beach combers in late Feb!  Go figure..

Believe it or not I found these oldies but goodies in my phone. Proof that it had at one point been nice and warm (and that I need to upload pix more often) – and then POOF the season passed and we were back to big, warm coats and fires in the fireplace. This was our last excursion to the beach in late September, back at the place where we were married and where we now like to take the kids – to keep it in our life and memories more long term. We had a chance to book some space there again for this upcoming summer and – how can we resist? The tradition keeps on.

These days the weather really seems to be warming up… maybe an early spring after all?

So instead of writing up a storm about all our goings on, packing up for a new move, watching the leaves change color … I’m going to post as many photos as I can and get back to working on that packing. So much packing. Meanwhile here are some pix from our High Holidays dinner out at the beach, and back at this lovely place where me and my husband were married. (thanks Loren Bevans for the last 2 pix!) IMG_3947 IMG_3948 IMG_3949 IMG_3957 IMG_3967 IMG_3971 IMG_3976 IMG_3981 IMG_3984 IMG_0080 IMG_0112

Remember this from last summer? This year the kids are tall enough to try more rides.
Here are some Coney Island pictures to enjoy – before the summer is over (how DID it go by so fast?!):
