my best fox sighting: morning after we got a foot of snow in Poquott, i left the compound to take in the views at the beach on Port Jeff Harbor. it was bright sun on fresh white snow, and between me and the water, a red fox came trotting through. we couldn't have been ten feet apart. he stopped briefly to stare me down, then trotted off. his fur against the fresh powder was just gorgeous.

port jefferson is the town I grew up in. Small world.. I'm sure we crossed paths driving through the area! 

 

I wonder if it's possible a Vibe Guide can take out the 2012 from the thread... and we can just keep it as the official west meadow thread...

 

We need to start this up again this year...That would be nice.  I don't think we met up ONCE last year... Thats just silly.

i only went once, last year. and I suck at leaving work early, when there's still work to be done. extracted myself from the office, but not looking like I'll beat the sunset out east. yay, daylight savings. A raincheck for next saturday or sunday would be grand.

if i drive 3 minutes out of my way on my 4-minute commute  to and/or from work, i end up at West Meadow Beach.  i think i've caught about 20 sunsets this calendar year, in various stages of nautical twilight, sunset itself, and now as the sun drops later, that glorious moment of fire in the clouds shortly before dusk proper.

don't get me wrong - this is no fun time to be hanging out on the beach - but it's worth the excursion on my drive home, even in the single-digit temps and negative wind chills we've experienced this winter.

so if any of you are headed down for a sunset in the near future, please holler at me via bookface and/or text.  i'm not always on the boards, and i'd like to be kept in the loop.  most of you have my pertinents and such (say it in the Geico pig's voice), so see you down by the beach...boyeeee.

:gop:

I was wondering if you did that... 

 

Colin, I love that beach in the winter!!!  I think snow on the sand is wicked pretty.... Do they have the gates locked?  Maybe u can be a scout.  They dont always plow the parkign lot from the snow, and then there is that big Lake sized puddle before you get to the entrance... lol.

Sarah, PM sent.

Nikki, during the first serious snowstorm of the yeah, somebody drove through the entrance gate, dislodging it and smashing the plate glass at the entry booth.  so West Meadow has been open 24/7 since December.  :lol:

i'm sure they'll replace everything now that the weather is getting warmer.

i'll drop by there tonight on my way home from work, in fact - see how things are coming along.

no, they should lock it at night.  that's why we can have nice things.

you can always walk up there and enjoy the beach at night , anyway. park on a side street in Stony Brook and walk up Quaker Path to West Meadow Road.  nothing illegal about walking.

lol.  omg, I kinda disagree.. but Its not like I suddenly want graffiti on the bathhouse or anything... Just my dumb idealistic view of people... which.. yea, will fuck it up. 

 

And, heck, if you can' figure out a way to sneak in, then your ot worthy of hanging out there at night anyway.. lol.  We used to sneak in by the beach club and hang on the porches of the bungalos....  

 

I don't think you can park along quaker path.. or well.. anywhere in olf field.

those little beach shacks are property of the residents of Old Field.  if you don't live in Old Field, you may not have a beach shack.

to my knowledge, no boardie has ever lived in Old Field.  if that situation should change, i'll let you know.
