Today is a blustery day. If you look out the window one minute it’s sunny, the next there’s a heavy shower. So my thoughts have returned to our summer 2008 trip across the country, from the Pacific coast to the Atlantic.
After a wonderful visit with two of my husband’s brothers in North Carolina during our cross-country adventure, we sprinted up the East Coast in order to reach the third brother on Long Island by the Fourth of July. Here I am, getting my feet wet for the first time in the Atlantic Ocean at Fire Island, on the southern edge of Long Island, New York.
