Summer at last!

With the "unofficial start of summer" this weekend who isn't thinking about the beach?  Here on Long Island we have some of the world's best beaches (imho, not that I am biased or anything), Sandy notwithstanding.   The boardwalks in both Long Beach  and Jones Beach Boardwalk are being rebuilt.  Long Beach's boardwalk is not ready for visitors but I have read that the boardwalk in Jones Beach is.  For details on your favorite beach, see the NY Times' Survey of the Region's Battered Beaches published last week.

Have a great long weekend!
