Images From West Neck Beach: November 7, 2009

It was high tide and sunny when I got to West Neck Beach around 2:15pm this Saturday. No swimmers in the water but there were a surprising number of cars in the parking lot. More people seemed to be staying their cars enjoying the views of Cold Spring Harbor than those who ventured out for a stroll on the beach. Maybe I just got there at the wrong time!

There were a few sailboats out and about and , I suppose, if you were properly dressed it really was a great day for sailing -- maybe not swimming, but sailing would be OK. When do most boat owners pull their boats out of the water? I guess it depends... some of our local sailors could certainly comment on this subject.

As you can tell from how the sun was hitting the water, I'm still not really used to Standard Time -- 2:15pm and the sun was already well to the west! Standard Time? I'm still stuck wishing it was summer!

If you look close in the shot above, you can see one of Yellow Buoys -- this one almost looks like it's halfway to Connecticut -- it isn't!

With a little help from Photoshop, I managed to squeeze out some Fall Colors in the picture below.
