Yesterday morning I heard a buzzing in my back yard. I was delighted to see that my neighbor to the south is clearing out some trees. Yea- more sun for my pool.

Lost Dune

A short section on road that connected Gin Lane to Meadow Lane used to be named Dune Road. With all the larger dune roads in other towns it was decided to eliminate the Southampton Village Dune Road and extend Meadow Lane.

Birch are not native to Eastern Long Island. Our winters tend to be too warm for birch to grow well here. This grove is a delight to drive by in winter.

Crash Landing

Last night my kitchen shelf came loose. At the time it was packed with dishes. As I unloaded the stacks of plates I was shocked to realize how much weight I had packed in there. An odd collection of counter top objects averted a complete disaster. There was very little breakage.

Up and Up

Many early summer cottages did not have much of a basement. This worked as the homes only got used in the short summer season. Now that these homes get used year round many home owners have been known to lift the house up and slip in a basement. Then the structure is set down onto the new foundation.
