About Today’s Photo:
Some dear friends of ours are renting a little cottage on the west side of Grand Isle, and we were over there last evening with some other Huntington friends for an evening of camaraderie and sunset watching. As the sky was mostly clear, there wasn’t much in the way of sunset pyrotechnics (as there have been the past couple of days), but it was easy to catch the moment the ball of our local star touched the horizon limning the wind turbines over Jerchico, NY against the orange.
