Today we drove out to the eastern end of Long Island. Traffic was slow through the Hamptons, but that gave us more time to admire the Dutch windmills and sing along to Johnny Cash. (The kids' favorite is either Ring of Fire or A Boy Named Sue.)
We finally got out to Montauk Point. We didn't go up in the lighthouse
(children small enough to be carried are not allowed), but we did walk along the beach and through the nature trails.
Clint and I think the Surfcaster in charge of spell checking must feel like a dope.
Claire collected shells.
Jacob found fish.
Isaac loved playing with sticks, throwing rocks and digging in the sand.
Clint liked watch the cormorants out on the ocean.
I enjoyed the rocks. The glacial till has everything in it.
It was a great day.
