Floyd Bennett Field Sunset

We stopped briefly at Floyd Bennett Field, in Brooklyn so I could photograph the sunset.


We went to check out the the new stone for our plots that I purchased. The black granite looks good. Our plots are in Southampton Cemetery, Long Island, New York look and looks nice in the shade of a tree by Henry Road. We plan to have green burials when the time comes. After that we drove to the North Fork of Long Island and ate lunch at the charming little town of Greenport. After lunch we took two ferries to and from Shelter Island and drove back towards home to Manhattan via the South Fork. While visiting the Elizabeth Morton NWR I was not happy to see that during the last couple of years people have taking it upon themselves to hand feed the wildlife. It is not natural for them to eat strange foods and could harm them. Many birds, including the turkeys came up to us expecting food. People don’t feed the Ospreys. The young are almost fledged and the parents were calling to them to fly off the nest.
