Just checking in as I haven't worked on any new posts since the beginning of the year.
Yesterday afternoon I wanted to do something genealogy-related but I wasn't feeling focused enough to do any serious research or writing, so I scanned a couple dozen slides instead. These photos are from the summer of 1981 on Shelter Island, NY.
Shelter Island is a town and an island that sits between the forks at the east end of Long Island. It contains large areas of protected land and is a beautiful, tranquil place to spend vacation time. My father had rented a cottage there for the month of August. He chose well; this was the view from the backyard.
Summer is not my favorite season but with our first snow in the forecast for tomorrow, this looks like heaven!
