On April 30th I started flying my new Phantom 3 Standard model drone. It takes really nice aerial photos. This view is looking toward the East over Cherry Grove.

Beach Plum In Blossom

The beach Plum blossoms in Spring before any leaves appear, and the beautiful white blossoms sometimes look like snow on the dunes.

Cherry Grove Views From Above

I flew my drone for the first time today. A few things stand out from the photos. First, the island is really thin and fragile. Second, the community is dense but remains charming in spite of the developers and their McMansions. Third, our little cottage really is precious. We're lucky to be here. The long thin yellowish building in a couple of the photos is the new Grove Hotel, rebuilt after a devastating fire a couple of years ago.

Season Beginning On Fire Island

Katie and I had a good seasonal opening at our beach cottage on Fire Island. A nice walk through the Sunken Forest revealed many holly berries and one fallen tree. The house is warm and comfy.
