Swan Pond

The senior cygnes have reportedly lived on Middle Pond for several decades. Their four cygnets are getting bigger and whiter every week.

Today either the Cob or the Pen paid us a visit.

Rainy Day Reality

One of the few rainy mornings on the South Fork this summer. So. Checked into reality for a bit.

Michael J. Sandel’s Column – New York Times caught my eye. That disdain for non-college-educated voters is the last acceptable prejudice. Labeling groups with condescending remarks such as “people who cling to their god and their guns” or “baskets of deplorables”.

Suggestion to media elite:

Read J.D. Vance’s Hillbilly Elegy. For the first time or again.

No Fo

Saturday on the North Fork.

Eight Hands Farm named for the couple and their two kids who bought and work the 28 acres in Cutchogue.

Alex Wagner’s locale on last week’s Showtime political show The Circus.


Then to New Suffolk. Deborah’s compound called Cottage Cove.

Family on the porchy porch.

Shinnecock Sailing School

Sailing school from Shinnecock Bay came about in Middle Pond. Some little ones were better tackers than others. A tiny guy tipped and righted the boat himself. Then there was a Crazy kids Catamaran who were whooping it up.
