Re: Contest/Game - Identify this picture

Geoff's got it--and pretty quickly! I was hoping you'd make the connection to the Visitor Center, which is the gateway to the Fire Island National Seashore here.

The national seashore extends for 26 of the 30 mile extent of Fire Island. Or at least what used to be a 30 mile barrier island: TS Sandy opened up 2 breaches, so that Fire Island became "Fire Islands." I had visited this site in 1995 by boat, when there had been a breach from winter storms (further to the east) that was being filled by dredges. I'm not sure what the national seashore will do: let nature take its course?

Your turn, Geoff.
