The temperature in Riverhead hit a balmy — and rather unusual for mid-February — 52 degrees on Monday.
The sunset over Long Island Sound was clear with no wind as more than a dozen local beachlovers in search of something to lift their spirits flocked to Reeves Beach. Some came with cameras, some with their dogs and children and even some high school athletes were there to unwind after a school workout in the gym.
The cliffs that abut the beach offer breathtaking sunset views and in the distance there are the remains of two shipwrecks also called the Reeves Beach Barges. The boats ran aground during a winter storm decades ago and during the season are great for exploring at low tide. You might find starfish, minnows and other aquatic life.
