Last weekend we visited family in Belle Harbor, New York. It is a beautiful, tight-knit community of great people who have all weathered a lot of tragedy together (The crash of American Airlines, Hurricane Sandy, 9/11), which makes them stronger. But when you sit there on the beautiful beach it is so hard to imagine it being anything but peaceful and beautiful. This is the entrance of the beach on 132nd street, where we spent two beautiful days on the beach. Our family owns a great store, the Blue Bungalow, in nearby Rockaway Beach. Stop in if you get a chance!
