A Day at the beach.

Wild Flowers on the trail
Yesterday (Saturday August 17th) was a beautiful day.. Warning dial up users—lots of images.
Cool, crisp, the sky clear and blue, the breeze brisk, the sun shining.
After a breakfast, I headed with a friend to low key day out.
We ended up at A Garvies's Point.

I love geology—and Garvies Point is a small geological museum and a series of nature trails along Long Island North Shore—the ridges and hills of the North Hills Moraine, and the deep washed out gullies of that run off the moraine.making long deep harbors. (The south shores is the more typical flat plains that many associate with Long Island)

The walking was a bit more rugged than my still a bit sore back liked, but it was worth it. Some of the day's sights....
One feature of the park--clay outcropping on the shore
