Fire Island is a barrier beach off the southern edge of L.I. and offers fine grained white sandy beaches, ideal for beach paintings. I often visit Lighthouse beach to sketch there. Many Fire Island ferries provide access to Fire Island, NY. The Fire Island ferries leave from Patchogue, Sayville and Bay Shore. From the Fire Island ferry, one can see the Fire Island Lighthouse (Lighthouse beach) in the distance. Cars are not allowed at Fire Island, so after leaving the ferry, one uses red wagon rentals to transport one’s necessities to the beach houses, often summer rentals for NYC residents.
The Long Island beaches get much use by
but many Fire Island beaches remain isolated within the Fire Island National Seashore, with access by
boat only, and long islanders love
their boats ! My
lighthouse beach paintings are enjoyable to do. While visiting lighthouse beach, I draw in my sketchbook, then later,
in my art Gallery/Studio here in Setauket, I refer to these beach sketches and finish the beach paintings. At left, you can
see me painting the
Montauk Lighthouse, at the
tip of L.I. The
Lighthouse area is also a favorite spot for
trout fishing can be found on
LI such as in the Nissequogue, and Connetquot rivers. Soon the chilly winds appear, leaves begin to display their colors,
the pumpkins begin to appear at the local farm stands, and another celebration is soon to begin!
