September at the Beach

Labor Day...The ending of summer, but not the end of the beach....
September is a wonderful time to visit the beach, and although you may not think it is warm enough to swim, you certainly can enjoy the ocean air and sunshine.
The weather for this Labor Day weekend does not look promising but there are better days to come. September is wonderful for beach walking or watching the birds.
The most favorite time at the beach, for many people, is after the summer rush has gone and the beaches are cooler.
The warmer ocean water temperatures on Fire Island actually make the beach air warmer than the Long Island mainland. Many people are surprised at the difference!
Take a ride, as soon as the rain stops that is, and see a September beach day for yourself.
You will love it!
