1. Down the hill and across the road from my brother-in-law's backyard is Long Island Sound. Amid the tall grasses of a tidal river is a myriad of wildlife. Walking down sandy paths, we came to the sound itself. A fishing class for children lined the banks. They were pulling in Robin Fish and then throwing them back. These banks are pebbly and my pockets became filled with pretty stones and shells.
2. We saw Blue Herons, White Egrets, an Osprey's nest, tiny Hermit Crabs and the prehistoric shell of a giant Horseshoe Crab.
3. The cousins made play everywhere we went. They are a happy bunch.
