Gilgo beach is such a quiet place and so close to the craziness of Fire Island (which I only go to in the winter). Long Island beaches are so beautiful but it can get crazy in the summer. If you want to really experience the beauty of Long Island and Fire Island beaches then go there in the winter. This picture is a hard to find little marshy area down a little side road that "dead ends". I took my son there to show to show him the beauty of the world and here's one of my photographs of our adventure. I hope you like it.
