A Week on Fire Island


(click on photos to enlarge)
TD and I had a wonderful vacation last week in Fire Island Pines as the guest of our close friend Philip. You may remember we visited Philip last Labor Day in his beautifully restored modernist house designed by architect Andrew Geller in 1961. Philip had two other friends visiting, Tom and Jim, and the weather all week was superb. Aren't we lucky?
My favorite walk is always a walk
to a beach.

I took refuge from the hot sun under an umbrella. The clouds glowed in the clear blue sky.

I just love the colors of the beach: blue, white, green, khaki sand. Those are the colors that I wear.

I could watch the colors change all day. It's so relaxing.

5:00: cocktail hour under the shade of the umbrella.

Philip's modernist house is very chic indeed

and carefully edited.

Here is the pool in the morning,

and Jim making dinner at night.

Up on the roof is a fantastic deck for viewing the ocean and the bay.

Yours truly.

The sun set slowly over the Great Bay

sinking down below the horizon

until it slipped away.

Heaven on earth.

Lovely house. I leave for a week in Ptown on Saturday and can't wait. I've never been to Fire Island yet but my best friend has a share there. Maybe next year.

Great house, looks like it is a
"just right size", nothing like the
colors of the sea and sand.
I enjoyed your post,
