Sad to see this weekend that this week’s extremely windy storms really did a number on the beach. we weren’t doing so great to begin with, then we had some 4-6′ surf from TS Leslie hundreds of miles offshore. All in all, it was a quiet summer for waves, but this is scary for no big storms and so early in the winter storm season.
- “Second Beach” looking west . That’s the high tide line up the middle with the high wave line up almost to the fence at the dune(right). The fence in the distance, just put up last week, already fell down in the high water.
Keep in mind-these pictures were taken about 1-1/2 hours before high tide.

Second Beach, Point Lookout NY Looking east. easier to see 1 week old fence already fallen.
Looking East from Point Lookout Town beach, the beach is gone, dug out by the waves last week.
yesterday all signs pointed to an impromptu get-together….
greeting us at the beach hut, a sign of things to come.
a couple of guys, some classic tunes, a beautiful day… and one really long extension cord.

Pedestrian walkway “Bridging mourning to hope”, featuring steel beams from the world trade center.
Tomorrow’s memorial will begin at 7:30am and all are welcome.
A big wave crashes right at the shore
Some pretty rough waters out there. a few die-hards were out at the TOH beach in 6 ft swells. a little calmer than yesterday when i got to see first-hand ambulances and multiple emergency room attendees at Long Beach Hospital yesterday (don’t ask!)
The sets rolling in looking west towards Lido Beach, NY
point lookout through my eyes and voice.
i’m not new in town, but i’m still a bit of a stranger here – i guess that’s my being too busy, but i’m working on it!
our great little town seems to be lacking an online presence, a report on the goings-on.
