Dust, Oysters and Venus

Filed under: Food & Drink,Sand, Sea & Sky,Summer by Bill @ 7:22 am

After a long day slaving away at the computer I went out for some dinner at Kingston’s Clam Bar. It was very windy yesterday and along the way I encountered this dust blowing across a soccer field.

There was so much dust in the air my eyes were burning.

For dinner I had clams and oysters on the half shell followed by a plate of fried calamari, and all washed down with a couple of pints of Paulaner hefe-weizen, a summertime favorite beer.  (Sorry no pictures of dinner.)

After dinner I noticed the planet Venus shining brilliantly in the western sky. The picture just doesn’t do the scene justice, but I hope you get the idea of how beautiful it was.

Venus is the very bright “star” in the picture above. You can see the yellow glow of Kingston’s dining room to the right.


  1. Beautiful photography, as always. I’m coming to LI for vacation in July and I think I’ll give Kingston’s a try!

  2. Well, if you’re in the area you might as well visit the Long Island Maritime Museum which is right next door to Kingston’s.

    The Snapper Inn which is 5 minutes further west is also a worthwhile destination.

  3. The top photo is stunning.

    Clams, oysters and calamari for dinner just as stunning.

    Such moments are not to be missed.
