Bailey Arboretum

After lunch at Glen Cove by the water we went to Bailey Arboretum, Long Island. A nice little woodsy place with a pond. Not many flowers though.

Planting Fields

It was a lovely day after a hard rain in the morning which helped cool things off. Marc, Paula and I had a leisurely walk through the grounds of Planting Fields Arboretum admiring the flowers and trees.

Cloudy Long Island Beaches

It rained on and off during the morning while we there at Gilgo, Captree, Jones and Robert Moses. I didn’t see many shorebirds. It was fun watching the terns fish and squabble. It’s been ages since I went to the shore and we enjoyed the trip and picnic.

The clouds add atmosphere. I love processing the RAW images in Lightroom to reveal what I saw that the camera could not capture. It’s like magic. The last two are by Marc.
