Anytime the sea is mentioned, thoughts land on Fire Island, where I have spent many weeks and long weekends since infancy.
The dunes there are of particular importance given recent storms like Sandy, Irene, and unnamed Nor’ Easters. Every year, this Fire Islander takes part in the community effort to install a dune fence over Memorial Day weekend. The first shot captures just a little bit of this past May’s fence. Finger crossed that this barrier helps to keep the sea at bay during the next storm season.
