Last bit of light before the sun dips below the horizon at the marina. I hope you enjoy.
The Fire Island Lighthouse
One would think being I have lived on Long Island for my entire life I might have been to the top of the Fire Island Lighthouse. Well I have not, but today I’m going to achieve that goal. I have been to the top of the Montauk Point Lighthouse and that one is a little claustrophobic for a portly gent like myself.
I am happy to say the spiral staircase is in great condition and there are ample handrails. This window is on the third landing and faces North toward the Great South Bay. That should be the town of Islip in the distance.
The thickness of the walls at the first floor landing were designed to be well over six feet thick. As you get higher the walls decrease in thickness and the tower gets narrower.
This window is facing south towards the Atlantic Ocean I guess you can call this the money view. It’s also the side of the building that gets hit really hard during the coastal storm and hurricane season.
This is the view from the top of the lighthouse facing West toward Robert Moses State Park and parking fields four and five. In the distance you can see the “Needle” water tower and the massive antenna to the right at the United States Coast Guard Station at Fire Island. The Atlantic Ocean is to the left and the Great South Bay to the right.
This is the view to the East and the communities seen in the distance are Kismit and Saltaire. Ocean Beach and Ocean Bay Park are a little bit further east. Beyond the lighthouse no vehicle traffic is allowed except for emergency vehicles. The Atlantic Ocean is to the right and the Great South Bay to the left.

This looks like a comfy place to sit down and take a break. Wake me up in 1/2 hour 🙂 I hope you enjoy.

This is a great little foot bridge on one of the nature trails at Bayard Cutting Arboretum. I hope you enjoy.

I Was Strolling Through The Park One Day
In the merry merry month of May, oh WOW it’s June already 🙂 I used a long lens to compress the perspective in this classic image of an “S” curve path. I hope you enjoy.

The Great South Bay is smooth as glass in the early morning but it looks like some storm clouds are moving in. It’s a shame because it’s a really clear day today and usually you can’t see the second bridge to Fire Island (Robert Moses Bridge to the right). I hope you enjoy.

There is nothing better than taking a little snooze in the afternoon and this image reminded me of drifting in and out of consciousness while lying on a lawn chair next to a lake (Laurie). I hope you enjoy.
