First Friday Walk

After getting skunked by inclement weather for 3 consecutive months, lets have a go at it for April, May, and June. The walk meets at the Story By the Sea trail. Park behind the Food Lion at Great Neck and Shore Drive. We gather at 10 and set out by 10:15 for a leisurely walk along the trail or in the neighborhood. And we\'ve crossed to the Bay. There is lots to see. Dogs are optional but Judy and I will bring our Greyhounds Crash, Missy, and Nick.
