I spent New Year’s Day on Long Island, the large island to the east of New York City, scouting out the terrain for future bicycle trips and, of course, taking pictures. Long Island is a fascinating place. The western portion is a part of New York City and what is not is still highly urbanized. But the eastern portion is very rural and has a lot of organic farms, wineries and beaches.
There are three posts of pictures in total for Long Island—this one, and then numbers 2 and 3. (They will each be posted a few days apart.) The ‘Like’ button is turned on for this first post only. That way, if you do not want to bother with the others, you need not feel compelled to do so.
Before viewing the photographs, I would also like to invite you to visit the poetry blog, the Book of Pain. As always, special thanks to my dearest spouse Lyn, who does most of the hard part: the photo selections. Thank you for dropping by the Book of Bokeh.
