I caught Sunday’s Sunrise at Bellport Beach and posted some images and video Sunday night and posted that here if you missed it.   I also took a couple of drone flights, hoping to see a whale.  There was a lot of bunker in the surf line but no huge pods out where the humpback whales like to feed.

As you can see the Bellport Beach Pavilion is still precariously perched at the edge of the ocean but still standing strong and level.  The Village has been granted approval by the DEC to move the structure back away from the water, just waiting for the Piping Plover nesting season to end.  We hope to have an update on the final plan soon.  The original Pavilion was wiped out by Hurricane Sandy in 2012 and replaced in 2015.  Fire Island and Beyond has been monitoring the situation since 2016, to catch up click here.
