Bicycles on Fire Island. No, I didn’t shoot it today. I would love to say I did, but no, this is a photo from early October. A beautiful day in October. We walked along the beach in jackets and bare feet. No swimming, no shorts, but a warm fall sun and good friends and bicycles for transportation.
I wonder how people get around on Fire Island in snow, on its icey paths?
No cars allowed for the every day inhabitants. Could I live on that island in wintertime? No, too isolated.
But this photo takes me back to a day walking , with Tuvia, with Don and Marie France who own a lovely home on island. And on our walk around the island, Don stopped here, to get his bicycle repaired for summer 2009, but first there will be many more photos of winter to come.
Summer 2009 feels far away.
