Saturday in Long Island
We had a very busy Saturday this past weekend. Tracy and I drove up to Kings Point to visit with Lucas for the day. He needed us to take some of his gear home since he will be off campus until November. We left at 4 am and got there at 7:30. Lucas had a final exam that day so we couldn't meet up with him until 11. Tracy and I explored Jones Beach that morning and we arrived at the campus just as Lucas finished his test. After a lunch we drove to Sagamore Hill, Teddy Roosevelt's home which is about 20 minutes East of the academy.
What a wonderful house! It is filled with Teddy's stuff and our tour guide did a great job explaining the history behind everything. Teddy knew how to live! The water shots are taken at his private beach behind his house.
After the house tour we drove to a theater to watch the new Batman movie, then back to Great Neck for a sushi dinner. We dropped Lucas off at 10:30 and hit the road for home. Nothing like driving through bumper to bumper traffic on the Long Island expressway at 11:30 pm going 70 mph!
