To wrap up my third day in Bellport, I will say how friendly everyone has been and how good it felt to feel the sand between my toes at picturesque Ho-Hum Beach earlier.

All thanks to Bellport couple Bonny Clark and Mike Ferrigno for taking me out on their boat to check out the village beach and take pictures of homes overlooking the bay.

And what a beautiful day it was. I stopped in at Gallery 125 and talked to chief curator Thomas Schultz about the artistic side of Bellport and can’t wait to show you what I’ve found. You can find my photos from today in the Storify below and look for a story on the village’s vibrant music and art scene on Thursday.

Also on Thursday, I’m stopping by Gateway Playhouse, a professional summer theater in operation since 1950, for a tour. Later on I'm heading to the Wertheim National Wildlife Refuge in Shirley to ask about a pair of eagles found nesting along Little Neck Run.

Check out our live coverage of my third day in Bellport below and follow along again on Thursday.
