East Hampton veterans, volunteer firefighters and ambulance personnel, and the East Hampton High School marching band took part in a Memorial Day parade Monday on Main Street under a cloudless blue sky.
The parade drew a strong turnout of flag-waving observers along its route from near Guild Hall to the Hook Mill green.
Sunday afternoon, after having kept the kids cooped up in the house for the preceding 24 hours or more, it was time to get them out for some air. Lisa took our eldest off in one direction, and I loaded the other two into my truck for the drive from our house in Amagansett to Montauk.
Our destination was the Montauk School playground, which is probably the best one around. A thick layer of ground-up tires covers the ground and provides an appropriate cushion for Ellis, our 3-year-old, who knows little in the way of physical fear.
The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation has until Jan. 1 to adopt a regulation establishing a prodecure to make official sea-level rise projections, and the D.E.C. will hold a series of meetings to hear public comments on the project over the coming week.
