Big difference between a house ON the ocean and a house IN the ocean. The recent Nor'Easter caused devastating erosion along Fire Island's coastline. In Davis Park the primary ocean front dune has washed away. The sand that anchored the support pilings for many homes has gone the way of the tide.

Nor'Easter and High Tide.... Very close call at high tide as this view across the canal shows. Seems as though Long Island really lucked out this time as the brunt of the storm hit West and North of the area. Now...a little sunshine and some warmer temps would be most welcome!

April...The day before the rains came! Certainly seems as if Spring is slow getting underway. Heck, the baseball players are wearing ski masks and the trout pond has skim ice! If this 40 degree rain ever stops .....maybe just maybe, the real deal Spring will make an appearance!

Morning Promise...Ahh..the joy of those first cool and crisp April trout mornings. While hope may spring eternal, the fish aren't always interested. Only catches this day were made with a camera lens.

Overhead!...Celebrating the return of the Osprey. (The detail in the tail feathers is best in the large view) After years of abscence on Long Island, these proud birds of prey are becoming a common and welcome sight.

Mating Ospreys...A pair of Osprey have elected to nest in the chimney top of the Cutting Mansion located at the Bayard Cutting Arboretum. The arboretum is located along the Connetquot River, not a bad location for an Osprey! These two birds were not overly shy and spent time sitting in trees just above our heads prior to their little mating dance in the nest.

Flyby....Tried my luck at fishing for trout this morning and just HAD to bring the camera. The result, of course, was that I did not do either activity very well! This guy and several of his buddies flew rather close to me as I tried to pan with the camera and hold on to my fly rod at the same time...yikes! Lol
