elcome to the Waterviews website and thank you for visiting. I am very excited about this new book, my first foray into non-fiction. As an author, this project has given me the opportunity to combine several of my passions; a love for the outdoors, kayaking, photography, and writing—all of which come together in many interesting and creative ways.

I especially liked being able to write about local Long Island history, much of which was uncovered during the research phase of this project. It makes for a richer experience while paddling. The same can be said for learning more about the wildlife that frequent the wetlands and shores of Long Island waters.

One important facet of getting to know the waters along the surface, is understanding the environmental impact on the fresh water below—our drinking water. If this isn’t one of your concerns, it should be.

So, take a look around the website and explore the images of these wonderful places within Waterviews.
