Photos: nature and family time over Labor Day weekend

This weekend, Ian and I did some family sharing/babysitting time. We had a great time. One of our adventures took us to a tour sponsored by Atlantis Marine World and Blue Ocean Institute. The Atlantis Explorer Tour Boat is located in Riverhead. It takes you on a one-and-a-half hour educational tour of the Peconic River and Flanders Bay. Here are some photos. Notice the beautiful, aesthetically pleasing windmill. Ian and I hope to see more windmills generating power in Long Island.

On the way to Riverhead:

Saw this interesting scene on the way to Riverhead. Trying to figure out what it is all about. Since I graduated from Sachem High School, I am uniquely interested in finding out the back story!
