first beach trip


please click on photo to see more interesting detail


here on long island many people think of memorial day as the "official" start of the summer season. some celebrate the long weekend with a barbecue or a trip to the beach while others are busy working. sunday I visited one of my favorite beaches in southampton. it was too cold to go swimming & I was too lazy to go for a walk so I opted for a nap on the beach instead. I don't often take naps during the day so it was a nice treat for me. if you'd like to see what is happening in other parts of the world, please visit the meme, "that's my world" here, thanks to klaus and his team, sandy, wren, fishing guy, ivar and louise.

It's a lovely beach.
I love snow fences, and the shadows and the drifting sand.

Looks like a beautiful beach, not too crowded, with long expanses of sand for a trek.

Is that Jones Beach? I have such good childhood memeories of trips I took there off season with my siblings and my Dad. We loved to beach comb in the spring and fall, off season.
