You canot see it from this pic, but on the horizon are Brooklyn and Coney Island. Behind them is the Empire State Building and Manhattan. Closer still is a Weapons Station with military ships docked and to the left is Sandy Hook Lighthouse and Fort Hancock. Last night on our walk we saw the 1st Lightning Bug of the year and tonight, here at the marina, I can hear the 1st crickets of the year! One of the NY Harbor channel marker fog horns is sounding off - storms are coming later this evening and tomorrow. This area we live in has become my home! Kinda snuck up on me!
