Fire Island is very close to Erin’s apartment and we went to the only part accessible by car, Robert Moses State Park. We were lucky because in just three short days, they were going to start charging to park there.
The weather was extraordinarily nice for us. After living through numerous cold and long winters in Plattsburgh, being outdoors in late March and not freezing was heavenly. All of us went for a nice boardwalk walk. The boardwalk was raised over sand surrounded by pine trees. Our destination included a tall, red lighthouse. During the summer, people can go inside.
After viewing the beautiful lighthouse, we walked to the beach where it was incredibly windy. Although it was cold and windy, it was so nice to be next to the ocean, hearing the waves crash onto the sand.
We left to enjoy a dinner prepared by Erin and saw a phenomenal sunset on our way home.
