Another Sunny Day for Hiking

Today was another gorgeous day!  After lunch, we headed out to Dam Pond Maritime Preserve, in East Marion, NY.  Known as a popular birding location, it has a couple of fairly short hiking/walking trails where one can see a variety of vegetation.

Upon entering the trail, we saw a lot of beautiful blooming Forsythia bushes.  At one point, I could hear one of my most favorite sounds - the haunting sound of wind blowing through pine tree needles.  Whenever I hear this distinct sound, I always feel Mom is saying hello to me.
Other sights in this preserve included a view of the salt pond, the Orient Causeway and an Osprey nest.  After this, we went on to Orient Point State Park at the very end of the North Fork of Long Island.  It was a great day!
