Needs a date
Heckscher State Pkwy, East Islip, NY
Long drive but a great spot to do a full day trip: stand up paddling in the morning and windsurfing in the afternoon since
during summer months thermal winds from S and SW kick in around 2 pm and continue until 6 pm. Mornings are usually low or no winds as in the picture. The park has a biking path so it might be a good place to bring a relative who does not paddle or windsurf. A field next to Field 7 has picnic tables, grills and playground as well.
