Quogue

Joining Alphabe-Thursday, letter Q

Visited Long Island this past year and enjoyed scurrying around the small community of East Quogue, NY (pronounced kwog).
The Long Island Exchange site gives a short background of the original inhabitants:

The Native Indian name of Quaguanantuck was shortened and changed to Quogue soon after the lands that form the town of today, changed hands and became European settler territory. Western civilization has never looked back since in this town that upholds sturdy values and the charm of colonized estates.

Took a photo of an isolated beach and played around with my phone apps….
can imagine the life led before the settlers came to stay.
