Insects and more at WPR

We drove two friends to Ward Pond Ridge, Westchester County, New York yesterday. It was too hot to walk much. We enjoyed a picnic by Cross River. There were butterflies, dragonflies, other insects, and one snake up a tree. It was resting after having just shed its skin.


Floyd Bennett

We drove to Floyd Bennett field for me to have a practice session driving the car on the almost empty old runways. We had a picnic lunch by the community gardens there.

Greenbrook

Our first outing to Greenbrook Nature Sanctuary, Bergen Co., NJ, in our new VW Jetta “James.”

Jamaica Bay

We have a new car, a 2019 VW Jetta. I named it James in honor of my mother (her maiden name). We plan to look for a less expensive place to live in a more rural area, or find a summer place, and need a car to do so.

Meanwhile, we are having fun going to places we have trouble visiting. This trip was to Jamaica Bay in Brooklyn, NY.
