The Websters arrived from North Babylon Friday morning. They said the parking lots were already filling up.

People were trying to make the anxiety of rain, ice and cold a distant memory, according to the Reese’s from St. James.
“It has been a horrible winter, but you know, we’re living it up. Life is good,” one woman told McLogan.

“We don’t know yet. And after we dig it, we’re going to put water in it,” one boy told McLogan.

The beach makes a great backdrop for any hobby, McLogan reported.
