Dune restoration at Robert Moses State Park, NY.
Fire Island National Seashore, NY. The National Park has several miles of elevated boardwalks winding through the coastal lowlands and around the dune and beach shrubs. From the boardwalks the coastal ecology can be observed and provides a great escape from the suburbs of Long Island. Hurricane Sandy either damaged or completely washed away all the boardwalks. The final section from Burma Road to the Lens House was completed and opened earlier this month.
Thank you tumblr! I have been posting pictures and the occasional comment about living on Long Island’s south shore and my local area for about 3 years. I am very grateful for any notes that I get on my posts and appreciate my followers interest. For me, any interest in the double digets is big, and I’m talking about 10. To think a picture of mine would get 604 notes is huge! This picture was taken at Gilgo Beach and has been one of my favorite spots to surf and run. Thanks to my followers and rebloggers for my first post to be seen by so many.
