Weather permitting, we will be sketching at Gillette Park in Sayville. You can get to Gillette Park by turning onto Gillette Ave from Main Street in Sayville and heading toward the water. Right now there are crocuses blooming and there is a neat labyrinth and gazebo. Dress warm.

Weather permitting, we will sketch down on the Bellport waterfront. If you go to the end of the Bellport Lane, there is a dock where you can park and sketch.
The forecast is calling for rain, it is by the water and March is usually cold and windy by the water. Rain or shine, it's going to be cold. Dress appropriately or prepare to sketch from your car. I have done sketches from the dock from my car and you can get pretty good subjects there.
