Sunset at the pier

 So, this was taken from inside the "Tea" on the Fire Island Pier.  For those of you not familiar with the terminology - or only the British terminology, "Tea" is usually paired with "Dance" as in "Tea Dance", meaning one that begins at a reasonable hour for grown-ups - in the afternoon.  As opposed to other "Dances", which seem to start sometime after 1 AM so as to provide proof you are now old enough to stay up late.  Whoop dee doh.
Anyways, with the modifier "Dance", "Tea" refers to drinks in the afternoon - best done where boy ogling is possible and outside.  Fire Island, with it's procession of men coming back from the beach is perfect.
In Rio, by the by, this is done every day without the need for the notation "Tea" :-).
PS - The young man in this picture was / is not the focus.  It was hard to get a picture of the sunset without someone strolling through it.  I mean my mother reads this for goodness sake!

OK...whatever you say, Scooter. That's your story and you're stickin' to it.

By-th-by...this brings a whole new definition to "Tea Partier" - I wonder if Michelle Bachmann and her hubby were are Fire Island. My guess is they were no-shows.
