Bleached sandy beaches, temperate salt water and breezes cooling us during backyard barbecues under blue skies are all the reasons I love Long Island. (pub in 50 +Lifestyles August 2016 issue)
This prose poem does express my feelings on this beautiful place that I call home. These are only a few of the reasons I like living here. Today is the first day of fall and I am still going to the beach every day this month. So calm and serene. I love the feel of sand under my feet and the salt water lapping up my legs as I stand in the bay. The quiet draws me in each time even if it is a few hours.
