life in and around NYC is insane

yesterday's adventure

I still have those @#$%& stitches in my arm, so no yoga class for me last night.

The weather was decent, so I went here:







Yes, Sunken Meadow State Park, my second favorite place to walk.

Jones Beach is a barrier beach island.  Sunken Meadow is a big green park with a small but interesting beach. It's on Long Island's north shore, on Long Island Sound.  The boardwalk is 3/4 mile from end to end.  I usually park at the main bathhouse, which is in the middle of the boardwalk, then walk to one end of the boardwalk, turn and walk to the other end, and return to the middle -- a total of 1 1/2 miles.  If I feel ambitious, I will repeat the circuit.

It's a pretty beach.



Nice view.



Look across the water and you can see Connecticut.


The patterns in the sand were caused by waves, the tide must have come all the way up to the boardwalk.





The jetty seems to be wearing down, there are more gaps in the stones this year than I remember.




I was there just before sunset.


Trees and plants along the boardwalk.






A tern.



And yes, I bought the parking pass.

Walks are better when the scenery is good.
