Clearwater FL

This is a shot of the Florida beach town of Clearwater taken from Honeymoon Island State Park. This is a long exposure that I took from a breakwater that jetted out into the gulf.  Normally when you are in Clearwater there is a lot going on, so much to see and do. But from here, a distance of about eight miles, everything seemed so peaceful and calm.

Push To Rename Trump State Park Gathers Force

A Long Island Democrat will introduce legislation in the New York State Assembly to strip the name of Donald J. Trump State Park, moving the measure a step closer to reality.

Assemblyman Charles Lavine of Long Island said in a letter to Governor Andrew Cuomo he thought the park should be renamed for Muslim Revolutionary War veteran named Peter Salem.

“It is time the State of New York sends a message to Donald Trump that his hate speech is not welcome in our great state,” said Lavine in a statement on Thursday. “I am confident that the governor will take our letters into consideration. If he is unable to act, then we are prepared to move forward with this legislation.”
