I always wanted to check out the town of Bellport here on Long Island, so last Sunday I finally did and I'd like to report that I was abundantly impressed. Bellport reminds me of what a lot of Long Island used to be like when I was a kid. It's an actual small town surrounded by a neighborhood. As I drove around I noticed many people walking from their homes towards their town. I know, a novel idea right? Only this is how it actually used to be in the "old" days before the great proliferation of "mall shopping". This photo was taken on the boardwalk right on the Bellport Bay. The sky had a shimmery feeling to it that reminded me of summer. I'll post more about Bellport tomorrow.
