I went to the beach in Hampton Bays tonight with Joe and Erin. We had a picnic with pulled pork sandwiches and homemade barbeque sauce and watermelon. It was a fitting way to spend the last day of summer. 

As night fell, we laughed and told stories and watched the shooting stars and listened to the fog horn. And Erin showed me the “sand sparkles” (you know, the algae that glow when you disturb the sand after dark) and it was just the best. I’ve gotta say, Long Island is really gorgeous. And as I was watching the crescent moon hang low and yellow in the sky on my drove home, I suddenly felt really certain that coming here was absolutely the right choice. 

My new coworkers are a total blast. Lobster dinner with good company and fun music makes for a great end to the week. (Taken with Instagram)
