Fire Island Sunrise – September 21, 2014

Learn about Fire Island at Amazon.com

Good morning readers,

We attended a family wedding in September of 2014 at Fire Island in New York. It was a great affair, but I was especially taken with the beauty of the landscape. I would awake to watch the sun rise over the Atlantic. Wonderful place.

Abigail was my mother’s cat. A beautiful Siamese with blue eyes

There are few creatures that are odd as the jellyfish

I snapped this shot while watching this sunrise on Fire Island, NY

Pre-dawn time on Fire Island
Maybe this was the wrong shot for #SunriseSaturday because the sun is still below the horizon.
However it was such a great place to wait and watch.

Classic gravestone carving at the Bridge Street Cemetery at Eastham, Cape Cod.
I don’t often see skull and crossbones. The most common theme seems to be either an urn or willow tree
Graves of children might have a winged skull.

One can not help but pity this young girl. This is not the typical epitaph.

“Long was her sickness, and painfull her sores:
which she bore with wonderful patience, and resignation.”
