I love my Smithtown Bay even when it’s feeling dull, rainy and lethargic, like today. There was not a soul on the beach today because let’s face - most people and critters are fair weather friends! But I’m here. I still love this bay, come rain or come shine! Today, however, it was just me and the ducks. I sat on a wet bench and had my moment of Zen, and enjoyed watching the drizzle on the flat, mirror-like surface of the water. I think that bodies of water are very fickle. Last week that bay was so angry and churned up. Today…ah…just chillin’. I took some photos of the beautiful red sand that runs along the shore line. I think this sand makes for a perfect backdrop for the shells and rocks. Who needs an art gallery when Mother Nature gives it to you for free??
