Todd and Howard on the Ferry

During high season, the ferries to the various Fire Island communities leave almost hourly during the day.

On Thursday and Friday nights, a night ferry leaves Sayville to go to The Pines.

Since cars are prohibited, The Pines has boardwalks rather than roads.

The beach at The Pines is beautiful, but slowly being eroded away by storms.

The house is surrounded by the forest and we have a beautiful pool. The lighting on the trees around the deck is new this year and is quite beautiful at night.

Everyone enjoys sitting around the pool, reading or dozing. Todd enjoys the pool almost as much as the ocean.

Since we've been coming to Fire Island for a number of years, we have lots of friends and acquaintances in The Pines and the neighboring community, Cherry Grove. In the afternoon, we often go with friends to Low Tea (outside, in the early afternoon) or High Tea (in The Pavilion building on the deck upstairs, later).

Ascension Party on the beach   

The Ascension Party is a big party on the beach. It's amazing the amount of work and how elaborate the facilities are for an afternoon dance.
