Long Island: Stormy Seas at Smith Point

Hot on the heels of some glorious weather last week, Long Island was hammered with driving rains and wind on Saturday night. Trees were downed, shingles were torn from roofs, anything that wasn’t secured down such as garbage cans went tumbling through the neighborhood.

With the strong winds came rough seas. On Sunday afternoon we went to Smith Point to watch the angry waves roll in. The dunes and the sandy beach were all but gone. The foamy tide relentless pounded the shore up to the retaining wall.

      The TWA memorial is very moving. Its hard to leave with a dry eye after reading some of the inscriptions on the granite stones around the memorial.
