Still moving its old bones

Let's see, that's a .... um... um .... Couldn't be a pre-war Studebaker, could it? We had a '38 or '39 Studie Commander when I was a child; it had 3 windows along the side and a divided rear window.

Shortest day of the year

And a cloudy, drizzly one it was.

St. James General Store

I paid a visit to the St. James General Store yesterday, a wonderful place to browse, especially at this season. It's been there since 1857. I advise you to take home some of their famous chocolate chip cookies, the best I've ever tasted.
The St. James General Store, located on Moriches Road, is said to be the oldest continuously operating general store in the United States. It and a number of other historic structures were added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1973 as Saint James District.(Wikipedia)

Can't wait

Just a few more days and the visual clutter will be gone. Was anyone's vote ever won by posting a sign along a road? Doubt it. Waste of money.

Montauk daisies

This lavish bed of Montauk daisies stopped me in my tracks the other day at Suffolk Community College in Selden. The plant is hardy, doesn't mind sea spray, and seems to love our mild fall weather.

Stone art at the beach

Intriguing creations.
 Held together by glue or magic?

Who's eating the yew berries?

Chickadee? Mockingbird? Squirrel? Maybe that yellow warbler I saw one morning recently. At any rate, there were a lot more red berries here last week.

A permanent part of the view?

I certainly hope not. Work seems to be stalled at Stony Brook Harbor.
