OUR TRIP TO MONTAUK POINT, LONG ISLAND NEW YORK

My family lives about an hour from here. It is the home of the historic Montauk Lighthouse, built 1798. It was a beautiful day and I realized my 11 year old had never been. So we went!
  1. The Lighthouse is closed off-season but we got to see the Atlantic. Such a gorgeous day!
  2. The Lighthouse!
    It was built 300 feet from the ocean to account for erosion.
  3. Close-up.
  4. Path to the beach.
  5. The Atlantic
  6. Getting ready to climb the toe wall.
    Put in place on the bluff to prevent further erosion. The bluff lost 200 feet in 200 years.
  7. A little too close to the edge for me!
  8. But the view was so pretty.
  9. And I enjoyed the peace.
  10. Stay away from the edge!
  11. Oh, there was a playground too!
  12. It was an awesome day!
