Fire Island, Long Island 2009

A few friends and I made our way out to Robert Moses Beach in Fire Island a few weeks ago, and it was by far one of the most enjoyable moments of my summer. I think of all the amazing things we saw, and the new friends we made, the most memorable thing was the Michael Jackson sand sculpture with the "J" written backwards. Sweeettt!

West Hampton 2009

I was fortunate enough to go to visit my friend's family in West Hampton. I saw some incredible beach homes, a beautiful country club and private beach, which totally beats the local beaches, and the crisp blue Atlantic Ocean. I noticed that the tides rose higher and come out further, and the waves are so rhythmic that they appear to be dancing and swaying with the wind. Even in their moments of violent splashing and thrashing, there's something about the waves that make me feel closer to God. Its one of the most beautiful things in existence on this side of heaven.
