A Couple Days On Long Island

I just got back from an extended weekend on Long Island, which included a triathlon sprint and some better than decent surf. Often times people will joke with me and ask, “Where in New Jersey did you grow up?”, and I’m quick to remind them that I grew up far from New Jersey (sort of). It seems kinda silly to make the distinction, but after the weekend on the Island that I just had it always makes me realize the importance of distinguishing Long Island from anywhere else. The lighthouses and towns are filled with history and from time to time (as witnessed in the last picture below) you’ll get some really fun waves to surf in the fall.
