Cherry Grove and the Fire Island Pines

The unofficial start of summer remains roughly two months away, but a few intrepid Fire Islanders have already begun to find their way back to the beach after a long and cold winter. I spent most of the day in Cherry Grove and the Fire Island Pines. The dreaded spring sea breeze did not kick in until late in the afternoon, Island Breeze in the Grove was open for burgers and cocktails, the replenished beach is broad and I even have a bit more color on my face courtesy of the strong April sun. A great day indeed!

Great to see images of the Grove and Pines. Maybe I will make it out there at some point this summer. The change of seasons is dramatic and makes the summer there so much more delicious.
