A walk after Thanksgiving

After an hour of tennis, I walked a little in the park.

Caumsett Park, again

The temperature reached 75º and not a cloud in the sky. We stopped at Powles marinaLloyd Harbor before Caumsett Park, the second time in less than a week, and took in the sunset at West Neck Beach. A little on the rock yoga

The farm group and winter cottage


The horses and the Master’s Garage – bathrooms.



We took RT from the main house, then PL2 to the beach to picnic. There are many bikers with fat wheels.


There are as many horse riders

We walked on the beach to the tip



The Lloyd Point. The water is crystal clear … unfortunately, no swimming allowed.

We returned via fisherman’s parking lot – permit only.


… We stopped by the West Neck beach and took in the sunset.

Sunset @ West Neck Beach

The little beach is on the Lloyd Harbor Road, right before the Caumsett Park. The sunset is beautiful.

Cold Harbor Spring State Park

The survivor tree.

Not sure this little patch of green is part of the Cold Harbor Spring State Park. It locates north of Powles marina and southwest of the Lloyd Harbor main street. Two white swans swim leisurely in  the water as well with a few geese(?).

Fresh Pond on PL2

We started our hike from Pedestrian Loop PL1 @ Caumsett Park, and went down hill from the main house to the Fresh Pond.

A couple of beautiful white swans

… then the geese … As the result of the 2020 election is still being processed or counted, I thought the noise of the birds is just like the quarreling Des and GOP, between friends who voted for the different candidates, are having right now … and where did they end up at.

PL1 @ Caumsett Park

25 Lloyd Harbor Road
Huntington, NY 11743

We walked equally but my phone recorded only 5.8 while my husband’s 6.7 miles (16,453 steps). This isn’t the first time I noticed the discrepancy.

Revisiting this park preserve brings back many memories … One of the reasons that I went there is due to the book I’m reading at the moment: Madam Secretary by Madeleine Albright, published in 2013. The link was from her husband’s side:

In 1921 Marshall Field III purchased 1750 acres of Lloyd Neck to create one large estate. He named the land after its Matinecock Indian name, Caumsett, which means “place by a sharp rock.” Field created a self-sufficient English-style estate as a combination country club, hunting preserve, and home, complete with its own water and electrical supply. When the estate was finished, it had facilities for every sport except golf.

The barn at the main parking lot, perhaps, was crimson but painted white lately. Following Pedestrian Loop One (PL1) which is 2.7 miles, we passed the Winter Cottage, Polo Stables (Stallion, Boarding and Indoor Riding Rink). Dinham Cottage, Mster’s Garage (bathrooms!) and the Main House. On the way up, there was a Lloyd Harbor police car screaming by – hope all is well. We went to the beach from the Main House – PL2 passing by the Fresh Pond.

The white barn – the Farm Group – by the main parking lot. It has a small cafe and bathrooms.
