Beach day…Earth Day

I knew I was going to be swamped today – Earth Day – so I tried to take a walk on the beach with my DH on Monday, but the weather was against us… it started raining hard when we got to the park, and I had neglected to bring my gore tex jacket along. Anyway, I managed to snap a few photos anyway. There was a lovely cherry tree about to bloom & some geese served as our welcoming committee.



I’ve written before about the Gateway National Recreation Area here in NYC. Someone had the great foresight to set aside some of the few remaining natural areas on the shores of NYC & preserve them. These photos were taken in Jamaica Bay in Queens. It was a hot, cloudy day with the threat of rain hanging in the air. Despite the large buildings in the distance, the only sounds were of chirping birds, honking geese, and the breeze making the brush dance before the coming storm.
