Tuesday: Robert Moses Beach, Long Island




Morning, but the kite-flyer has got here early.


The kite....



 and the bird



And not too very many people.


The water completely delicious and not a bit cold.


For those of you from out of town, Robert Moses was a most interesting, larger than life character. He is really worth reading about. I always tend to think of characters from Ayn Rand when I think of him.

    The last one just reprising "Jaws" for me!

  4. I love your beach pictures. They make me feel very land locked here in the midwest. Sigh.

  15. Dexter and I were eating our sandwich while reading this post- Got sand in it!
    Beautiful wonderful summer shots- Dexter wanted to run away from the wet stuff- I am sure Buster did!

  17. Elizabeth, it is great that yesterday's weather was kind to your beach visit.

    Once again, I will tell you how lovely are your photos, and that they are proof of just how many words can be held in a picture.

    I very much like your cluing folks not from New York on to the multi-faceted person that was Robert Moses.

    Where, oh where, is the thunderstorm that was to grace us this afternoon? Our smogginess does need a good cleansing.

    Best wishes. xo

  20. Summer? What's that? Oooh, I could sit here all day just gazing at those lovely photographs. What a gorgeous beach for a long walk, mind empty...just soaking up the sound of the sea and the energy boosted salt-laden air.

    Hmmm, I see exactly what you mean about Robert Moses being an Ayn Rand character. Gosh it seems a 100 years ago that I was transfixed by her books.

  22. This collection of photographs have such delicious open space or "emptiness" in them. Very soothing to gaze upon. Those bird prints (tracks?) are wonderful.
