It was just a perfect day for a walk the other day. There wasn't a cloud in the sky and the temperatures were in the mid 70s. It was just the tiniest bit hazy on the water, which softened the horizon to the point that it blended with the sky. On really clear days, New York's Long Island can be seen, and on really, really clear days, the beige sand dunes can be differentiated from the darker flora above them. I love walking along our Long Island Sound no matter what the day is like.
This area's pale pink granite can be seen along the bottom of these photos. My family's granite quarry in Leete's Island, in the next town over, Guilford, furnished the stone for the base of the Statue of Liberty and several other well-known buildings and bridges in New York and New England.
It was just past low tide this day. These rocks are usually just about covered over at high tide.
