Jones Beach State Park

So I've been getting more actively lately, I've been doing some walking. 

One afternoon last week I headed over to Jones Beach.

Yes, the world-famous Jones Beach, the jewel in the crown of state parks on Long Island.

I'm usually at the park on summer evenings, when I've got ticket for a concert at the Jones Beach theater.  And I'm there for the annual breast cancer awareness walk in October.

But it's been a long  time since I visited in the off season, when there weren't throngs of beachgoers around.  I can to walk the Boardwalk, but found myself admiring the scenery.  The beaches, the dunes, the art deco buildings dating from the park's founding ...

The amazing architecture of the bathhouses:

I think the shack is where you rented the beach umbrellas from.

Either that, or a lifeguard shack.
