We arrived at our sweet rental home late in the afternoon ....after a day of shopping and browsing the middle of Long Island. Although we visited this house and its owners on my fall trip out here....I was surprised how pretty and serene the place felt as soon as we opened the door.
In a few hours of residence we already made a simple dinner....downed a bottle of wonderful Merlot from South Africa while listening to Klezmer music....traditional Eastern European Jewish folk music. We decided to bring only world music to our house to listen to this week....so I brought Salsa and African music....hub brought Klezmer, Australian and Celtic music. I tell you with a bottle of wine in me....I was ready to stomp around on these hundred year old wooden floors and dance!!!
But instead we hit the beach.....which was hard work since the beach is composed of zillions of smooth pebbles. The waves sound lazy and slow here...almost sloppy..and after they hit the beach...thousands of small pebbles roll back with the waves creating a high pitched tinkling after sound. Because your feet sink into the pebbles....it takes a lot of work to walk on the beach and halfway back home we cheated and hit the road....so we could return before midnight...lol
I can't wait for the morning....I'm planning to get up at sunrise.....and walk into town and around the ponds which are scattered about and occupied by snow white egrets.
