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.
