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. I went last sunday and as I drove around I noticed many people walking from their homes into their town. I know, a novel idea right? that's how it used to be though before there were malls. when the malls started being built I don't know if anyone realized what that would do to small towns but that is the reason why there are so very few small towns left. 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.
