Autumn Is In The Air

One of the more interesting Fire Island bay front homes that we marvel at when we walk West from Cherry Grove is this house in Seaview, which is located just East of the incorporated town on Ocean Beach. As you can see, the owners really jacked this house up on pilings. It's good exercise just getting to the front door! When you think of storm damage out here on the barrier beach, you might assume that the ocean front houses are most at risk. However, recent storms, especially "Nor'easters" have done a lot of damage to houses on the bay. This owner decided to give himself a little extra protection from flooding.

Last evening Dan and I and our good friend Ed Mallon saw the Pines Arts Project's production of "The Best Little Whorehouse In Texas." It was this first time we saw a show in "Whyte Hall," the beautiful new Pines Community Center. Most of the cast are Equity members and the FIPAP usually mounts a pretty good show. The actors and dancers were excellent. However, I didn't much care for the book or the music. I wish they had selected some other show, e.g., something by Kern, to do as an inaugural for the new house.

It's definitely feeling at lot like autumn out here on the island these days. The blanket is back on the bed and sleeping is great, or at least it will be after the local bars turn down the thumpa-thumpa that goes on all night when they have their weekend mega-parties.
