Yesterday I went down to check the dock in Bellport, and there was a lot more damage than there seemed to be in Sayville. I don't know how the dock furthest out is still standing when the inner sections are really in ruins. Some of the trees are uprooted, one gazebo was knocked down and the water line went really far past the first street. The Bellport Yacht Club is still standing, but I can't imagine what it is like inside. You can see Fire Island off in the distance. That area got really hit hard and there were two breeches where the ocean met the bay.
We are expecting strong winds and heavy rain today as the Nor'Easter heads our way. I hope it doesn't undo all the work the crews have done to the power and phone lines. Stay safe everyone!


  1. Oh this is so good, Joan -- sad, but a wonderfully done memory of this terrible time ... Overcast here ---

  2. As despairing as the storm damage is, you've still captured the beauty of this scene, Joan. I really love the blues and grays of this piece.

  3. Lin - Thanks. Now we have snow over everything!

    Sherry - Thanks so much. They are working already to rebuild the docks.
