I Never Get Tired of This Place

I never get tired of this place. Lived here 20 years and this is my place of solace. In any season. Driving, walking, running (years ago), biking, kayaking, following a trail and climbing narrow stone steps up to the Tod Mansion site, the gardens kept so beautifully by a local club, views across the Sound, the Manhattan skyline, Long Island, mysterious stone walls with little windows cut out of them (a fort?), the birds, the beachgoers, beachcombers, beach bums, strollers, dog walkers (in wintertime), wind surfers, kite surfers, athletes of every type and age, picnickers, bird watchers, people watchers. Even dulled on a foggy quiet day, the autumn colors at Tod’s Point, I never get tired of this place.
