THE SPLENDOR OF SUMMER

My goodness, seems like just yesterday I left for vacation. Where did the time go? I'm happy to report, from what I can remember, a very good time was had by all! It was great to get away from everything I'll say. It was a lovely relaxing time, filled with maximum minimum debauchery.  I only recall stripping once at a party, and losing two pairs of square cuts....god only knows. And then there was an unexplained can of Redi Whip in bed one morning?!? But anywho.....it was off to  a Gay Island super close to New York City where lots of gay guys go every summer to wiggle around like Mexican Jumping Beans. It’s were I went for a second stay , after enjoying it so much last summer, and that place is Fire Island.... and it truly is quite a magical island. Yes, it will make everyone want to punch you hard in the mouth, but it’s kind of hard not call this place magical. It’s a tiny little island with nothing else around it and it’s kind of a miracle that it exists. It’s only 1 mile wide, so it literally could blow away in the next hurricane. And NO CARS ALLOWED!  My advice is to get there as soon as you can, ogle some merry Homosexuals, and try your hardest to understand the strange, amazing, and delightfully relaxing place that is Fire Island. Some of the reasons I love this little spigot of land???? Besides goofing off for the camera.....
Finding a place to stay in Fire Island is probably the most difficult thing in the world, since their aren't many hotels. This is because it’s an island full of privately owned homes that landlords sublet to people all summer. Those subletters then sublet them to other subletters who in turn sublet them a few more times until you have no idea who is the owner and who is the hobo that lives underneath the hot tub!!! Luckily one of the clan has a friend who has a home there, so we lucked out and only had to put out once each. just kidding, Just wanted to see if you were paying attention.  The place even had an outdoor shower, which I'll miss immensely!!!
 
Our host's lovely home
A view from the rooftop, and a short walk to the beach.
 They have tons of tea parties all the time, but no one drinks tea ever. At Fire Island there are about 16 tea dances every day. There’s Tea, Low Tea, High Tea, Middle Tea, Junior Tea, Senior Tea, etc. But there’s never any tea. “Tea” is just code for cock-a-tail time 4 PM. You go to at least two of these parties before you eat dinner and then you’re supposed to go to one or more after. Here on the island, there is always time for another cock-a-tail!
just one of the "small" tea dances!
 
There were so amazing houses on that island. I guess when you take the population of Manhattan and squeeze them onto a tiny island they make cool buildings. Because I love to see houses and design and architecture. I had no idea when I started taking this picture that a naked dude was staring through his window at me taking the picture.
This is the pavilion where all the “tea parties” happen. This building is brand new because the previous tea party space burnt to the ground a couple years back....pretty amazing design for a club.
I also found myself obsessing, yet again, with the glamorous system of boardwalks that connects the entire island. The boardwalks allow you to walk around the island without getting gross and disgusting dirt all over brightly colored flip-flops you matched to your outfit of course. And then there are the very tame deer, who are all over the place.
yours truly resting a spell......
Oh yeah, and there’s beaches there.......
 
I don't know who these guys are, but felt as though I needed too......excuse me a moment....
I used to believe that, because of the mega pollution, California has the best sunsets. That being said, these weren’t too shabby, a very close first, I mean, look at that flamingo pink sky.......
 
This is the last sunset I’ll ever see in Fire Island this summer.
 If any of you get the chance to go...TAKE IT!!!! I suggest you go though, if only for the anthropological and gay mating habits of lessons you’ll learn from going there. And the fact that you get to drink “tea” all day and no one will judge you for it. There's always time for a cock-a-tail!!!! Thanks to the clan for some of the pictures!

  2. First off WELCOME BACK....FINALLY! Your trip looks truly spectacular. You have brought back fond memories of when William and I used to go up with a couple we knew, two swell guys. Nice to see it doesn't appear to have changed much. I did always love the deer there, so odd to see them in sand and surf isn't it? And I can't imagine a more beautiful setting in which to celebrate summer. That house you stayed is truly stunning in the most classy, restrained way possible, just like you im guessing?

  10. Hi Mistress. Welcome back....I can understand why you'd want to go back. Interesting post and perspective. Nice photos. Honestly, it hadn’t even occurred to me that there are people, particularly gay men, that don’t know about Fire Island.

    I’ve vacationed in Cherry Grove over the past several times. And, yes, it was always MAGICAL! Like.. MAGICAL. But I never stayed in a private house, only at the Belvedere Guest House, and it's clothing optional. And I have to say, I prefer an ALL male guest house. We did stumble upon a late night “tea” party and that was fun. I danced. But there are plenty of teas, that's for sure.

    If I go back, or should I say WHEN I go back, I will most definitely stay in Cherry Grove. My boyfriend doesn’t like the Belvedere but we stayed at place called the Dunes, which wasn’t luxurious but it was convenient and charming.

    You sure do know how to live summer.

    1. Very nice. I never stayed at the Belvedere, but last year we spent a day there basking nude in the sun. Very decadent interior if I recall.

  12. This post is awesome, and i wish i was a gay guy who could date you forevermore. But I’m a gal, who is totally obsessed with the beach, interiors and architecture too, so that will have to be enough. And those boys are too many things!

  18. as a str8 girl, I guess my chances of going to fire island are zero. BUT were I to go, I would spend my days there drunk and staring at all the...nature...yeah, that's it, natural beauty. ;-)

  19. Oh, I just knew you'd have sparkly gold balls!

    I have never been to Fire Island! Grew up on Long Island and Brooklyn, too, and my aunt and uncle (my wild aunt and uncle) even had a summer home there. And then when I was an adult I had friends with house there, but I had left New York by then.

    I doubt I'll ever get there now, but I also have a feeling I'd just feel old and invisible anyway.

    But I'm so glad you get to enjoy it. And thanks for sharing the beautiful photos.

  20. Fire Island is not only beautiful and unique...its unreal-in a transcendent sense. The homes in the Pines are so simple, most matchstick wood, but what design navels. I'd been hard pressed to even leave that roof top Mistress. I could lay there naked all day....with you boys. Looks like a heavenly trip.

  24. Loving that brick number...and those three built like brick houses! A naked dude in the window, and you didn't use the zoom??? LOL. Had a friend who used to summer there every year. She loved the view; so many naked guys at that time - or so she said. Sadly, she's passed...the woman was a hoot!

    But, my, oh, my, you are the sweetest thing in the universe - I certainly missed your comments, but I am happy you had such a great time!

  25. I've enjoyed gay holidays from the tip-o-the Cape all the way to the Southernmost point and have yet to make it out to Fire Island. At this point when I do make it I think Senior Tea will be where I fit in. Oh well ...the goal in life to have as much fun as possible doesn't mean do all the fun possible. However I might try....

  26. I loved this post! I had no idea Fire Island was so beautiful looking. The beach shots are stunning, as are those boys. My only experience with Fire Island was a 80's smut paperback about a guy who becomes sexually involved with a gay couple, that I read over and over and over. Its probably the closest I'll get to the place. Your lucky to have the experience and memories no doubt.

  27. Welcome back, Mistress! Ms Moorecock was holding the fort (manfully?) for you, but it's never quite the same when you're not here.

    Now about this gay island. Are woman allowed there? I would have thought a few women might be useful as mediators or umpires on an island full of gay men.
