Awesome - I can't wait. I've had a Fire Island story in my head for a few years and this would be the perfect illustration.

Heee, it's a very good photoshop job, definitely better than the WC pics in the show, LOL...

I'm sure I'll find a good pic to transplant Neal's head :P

YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!! More Wonder(ful) Years!

I spent some time every summer on Fire Island into my mid-teens. My Aunt and Uncle had a house there. Actually, they had two, a tradition house and then later they build the first pre-fab round house on the island.

I may tap you for local knowledge - though somehow I don't think you were a frequent visitor to Orchard Beach or The Pines

Not so much on Orchard Beach or The Pines.

What I remember most are my senses of the place. The painfully hot sand under my feet on the paved sidewalks. The salty scent to the air, even indoors. The cold of the water on the outdoor shower. The feeling that you can never escape the sand, it was in everything and everywhere. The thrill of riding on the ferry and the extra jolt of a thrill as we pulled up to the dock (knowing I was getting off for an adventure). The taste of the fresh grilled swordfish my Uncle would catch on his boat and we would eat on the breezeway at the wooden table long enough to fit my whole family.

If it will help, I can describe somewhat the places I used to go to there, though I can't remember any of the names anymore.

Woohoo! It's going to be awesome when put Matty's head in this pic. Can't wait to see it.

Also can't wait to read the fic Elr writes to go with.
