Tonight, we’ll be boarding the ferry to Fire Island to celebrate the fourth of July with our close friends. This will be the third year in a row we will spend the long weekend here on this lovely island, an oceanfront oasis away from all the hustle and bustle in our neck of the woods. Fire Island is a unique and magical community where people still leave their doors unlocked , get around by foot or bicycle and come back year after year to see familiar faces and enjoy summer traditions. I love the low key, laid back vibe that embraces you the moment you exit the ferry. We plan on hitting the beach, firing up the grill, and relaxing with good friends (and lots of wine). Here’s a look at some photos I’ve taken over the past few fourth of July weekends. The sunsets are especially breathtaking, wouldn’t you say? I hope you have a wonderful weekend filled with family, friends and of course, plenty of delicious food!
