    Playing Croquet Can be So Gay

    Playing Croquet at Fire Island Pines, June 2011

    “So they left the subject and played croquet, which is a very good game for people who are annoyed with one another, giving many opportunities for venting rancor.”
    ― Rose Macaulay (1881-1958, English writer)

    I have never seen anyone play this game of croquet on this small, artificial lawn, which is part of an ocean-front house in The Pines.

    I do believe that the equipment is decorative only. It is an amusing affectation. This is the only suburban-styled lawn in The Pines.

    Equipment: A lawn and a croquet set.

    Kiting on the beach, Fire Island Pines, 08/2011

    “Let’s go fly a kite
    Up to the highest height!
    Let’s go fly a kite and send it soaring
    Up through the atmosphere
    Up where the air is clear
    Oh, let’s go fly a kite!”
    — from “Mary Poppins” Written by Robert B. Sherman

    Kite flying needs more strength and skill than one might think.

    When the wind is blowing right, mostly from the southwest, it is the best condition for kite flying.

    The beach, without obstacles, is perfect for kite flying.

    Fire Island Pines, Beach Ball Toss, June 2011

    Because most of the visitors to The Pines “throw like a girl,” it took a straight father and his son to show all on-lookers how it is done.

    Equipment: A baseball and gloves.
