Nothing like a day at the beach to blow away the fumes of the city.
Robert Moses is the continuation of Jones Beach and stretches for mile upon mile just off the south shore of Long Island.
On Tuesday the waves were pretty wild and most people had fun splashing on the shore.
Only rather hardy, brave souls actually swam.
In view of all the depressing news about childhood obesity in the US, I recommend parents take take their children to the beach and let them run around to their hearts' content.
Much better than mouldering in front of the TV/computer.......but that's just me.
The requisite artsy photo of the fence that keeps the dunes in check.
The seagulls are beach- appropriate but very greedy.
Always on the lookout for the stray bit of sandwich.......
But here they are trying to behave, and are are noting the warning sign and not going swimming.
A voracious seagull once snatched R's hamburger right out of his hand as it was on its way to his mouth.
Here they decorate the top of the snack bar awaiting their next victim.
Here's hoping all of you get to the beach very soon.
I have been lucky enough to be given awards by both M.Kate at La Vie est Belle and
Willow from Willow Manor.
I am very touched and grateful that people have fun reading my blog.
I enjoy visiting lots of different blogs for all sorts of reasons and think there are many , many fascinating, kind and talented people out there.
Hard to single people out.
I like to travel round the globe on the internet........(when I'm meant to be writing or doing laundry and other important stuff).
So to everyone on my sidebar and everyone else out there who enriches my life
keep on blogging.
And to M.Kate and Willow special thanks today.
