One of the many expansive views from the grounds of Harkness Memorial State Park I visited Sunday. There are more than 200 acres all leading to the Long Island Sound. You can see the water in the background and in the far reaches of the horizon, you'll notice a long, thin slightly darker island. That's part of Long Island, New York, only about 15-20 miles away as the crow flies. That's a kite in the sky, not a UFO or a spot on the lens... There were several kites being flown all afternoon.
