This is the last Fire Island post. Promise!
After the first day on the island, I walked over to my friend Joanna and asked, "So. We've played at the beach and the bay. Just curious. What else is there to do?"
She responded with a slight panic in her voice, "Hmm. We could take a water taxi somewhere, but this is pretty much it."
I was surprisingly thrilled with her answer. The island forced me to simplify my life and calm down. Once I realized I didn't have to squeeze in a million activities and subway/bus rides, I could finally relax for the first time since summer started. While my kids played in the water, I sat under a beach umbrella and read a book. It was nice that the water was really shallow, there was always a life guard, and my kids are pretty much swimmers. My life is finally getting easier . . . for now!
Here's some of my favorite pictures of the bay and the beach that we took with our iphones. FYI: We stayed in Dunewood! Loved it.

|No cars on the island, just wagons and bikes. It's hard for the little ones to keep up. We cheered him on.|
Go Toby! Go Toby!
