This week a nor'easter hit the Mastic Shirley peninsula with predictions of high winds and flooding. I started my day just before dawn, which coincided with high tide in Mastic Beach. Since Superstorm Sandy, many houses down here have been raised up. Good thing, because the bay was taking over many of the streets.
The Section One Marina was overflowing.
Next, I headed over the Smith Point Bridge to Fire Island National Seashore. It wasn't quite high tide here, but the damage from last night's high tide was visible.
The tide was still rising when I left. Stay tuned! Happy winter from the Mastic Shirley peninsula!
