Re: Shark Week
It's interesting how LI is effected by big storms..the further east one goes the less barriers from the Atlantic but mostly surrounded by bays and wetlands. On the north, there are less flooding concerns but they are more buffeted by winds and snowstorms but even they don't escape high tides. Most damage is caused by winds and falling trees. Although she is further inland than I, my daughter is much more frequently inconvenienced by outages than I have been. I know there is outlet direct to the sea at Shinnecock but the lands in that area are difficult to explore. Much of it is either part of the Native American reservation or private. Dee has been spending a couple of weeks there many years directly on the beach where campers and mobile homes can be set up. I imagine it must be difficult to claim a spot since they are reserved so far advance and she has friends with their own spots for decades. She rents a mobile home that is brought in and set up, furnished with all of the basic needs one would need to be comfortable. Her family enjoys the water activities and with old friends to greet each year, it is quite nice. George and I had been going out east to the Southhampton Classics about the same time and we've had an opportunity to visit a couple of times in the past.
