Combine ocean breezes, warm sun, waterfront dining, charming “beach-y” shops, and ten friends and you have our latest Tuesday Adventure. This month we took advantage of Long Island’s natural resources and took the ferry from Bayshore to Ocean Beach in Fire Island.
The boat docks in the heart of a charming three block town that showcases everything from boogie boards and bikinis to refreshing ice cream, fun home decorations, and real live baby deers. Ocean Beach is very casual and the homes are variations on a bungalow; some are very simple and others are million dollar mini-mansions. The streets are narrow walkways and the only transportation allowed is bicycles and the occasional golf cart for town officials.
We walked across the island to the ocean which was rather rough, but gorgeous. All that activity made us hungry so we dined at the Island Mermaid Seafood Restaurant. Everything always tastes better under an umbrella seasoned with the salt air. Our magical day was like a vacation away from all the stress of the mainland and we will definitely return soon.
EISENHOWER PARK - MUSIC UNDER THE STARS
On Friday evening, July 10, members of the Long Island Chapter of TTN were treated to an excellent concert at Eisenhower Park. The music was "Neil Berg's 100 Years of Broadway." the music was most enjoyable and the performers were great. We enjoyed each other's company on a beautiful summer night. Many remarked that TTN/LI should repeat this event.

These vibrant posters are works of beauty that were created after the Russian Revolution by the foremost Russian artists of the time to convert the masses to the ideology of Lenin and Trotsky. They were instrumental in changing history in the 20th century. We will be treated to the "back stories" of these and other 20th century avant garde artists.
