Hurricane Bill at Robert Moses

Filed under: Photo's,Sand, Sea & Sky by Bill @ 7:17 am

I love a good storm, so as soon as the beaches were open I drove down to Robert Moses State Park to see what the surf was doing and if there was any damage to the beach.

I wanted to climb the Fire Island Lighthouse for a bird’s eye view, but unfortunately that part of the beach was still closed. I ended up at field 2.

It was apparent that the surf came all the way up to the dunes. I am not familiar with this part of the beach so I couldn’t really tell how much sand was lost.

Here are some pictures.











  1. beautiful pictures…
    I am new here and always looking at pictures and reading about the Island from someone who really knows lot about it.

    I also did some pictures yesterday, in the afternoon.
    Impressive how few wind for such strong waves…
