Beachcombing Long Island

Welcome to discovering Long Island, "One Beach at a Time" where we cherish our local beaches.

While summer is prime time for any beachgoer, winter is “prime time” for beachcombing as winter storms are known to turn up hidden treasures.

My husband introduced me to the beaches of Long Island many years ago.  We have continued our beach exploring tradition and hope you enjoy our snapshot of Long Island Beaches, one beach at a time. 

On a bright sunny day in January, I convinced my husband, Kyle to go to a local estate sale in Southampton.  After failing to score any estate finds, we decided to not waste a sunny day (I think it was in the low 30’s) and check out Flying Point Beach in Watermill. Kyle discovered this beach during his work day delivering equipment to a local beach club. 

Luckily, this Long Island Beach doesn’t require a permit from October to April, so we could park and wander the beach, in search of undiscovered treasures. It had been a quiet weather week so the beach was mostly sand with just few trails of shell lines. I did score this perfectly polished piece of white sea glass.

We were a bit chilly and decided to check out one of our local vineyards to warm up.

This was our first time at:  Duck Walk Hamptons Water Mill, NY 11976. We enjoyed a bottle of their 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserved and the wonderful ambiance of their tasting room that features vibrant Gatsby inspired art work that is also used on their wine labels.

Last minute day trips are always a treat. There is always an unexpected gem to be found on Long Island.
