please click on both photos to enlarge for greater detail.
this was taken at the top of a dune right by a path we took to the beach. it seemed like one spot was made for people to be able to stand on and use as an overlook. I was so happy running up to the top to see the view. this is probably the first time I have been on a dune since I was a kid. most people on long island will tell you that dunes are off limits in order to help preserve our beaches. when I was a kid we always played on the dunes as if we were stranded in the desert. like having a swim in the ocean, playing in the dunes was a regular part of going to the beach. this of course was before we knew all that running around all over them upset the delicate balance of things.
