Cross the causeway across the Great South Bay
heading directly south.
A huge amount of work was done over the winter, rebuilding the dunes that were battered by Hurricane Sandy almost two years ago. The newly planted dunes look rather unnatural and a sort of lagoon has been formed.
This divides the main beach from the ocean. The water in the lagoon bit was warm but a bit scummy. Needs flushing by the tides.
When the tide came in, kids on skim boards (in the middle) slid from the ocean to the puddle.
A helicopter doing important things - actually just routine, I think.
By midday the beach has filled up, the sky is a brilliant blue - and we headed home
to eat cherries and peaches.
