About This Walk
Welcome to our walk through beautiful Port Washington/Baxter Estates/North Port Washington! We will gather at 3 pm for a group photo by the flag pole at Baxter’s Pond, then begin our walk promptly at 3:15. Please be sure to check back in case weather changes our start time. Our walk will cover the waterfront areas of these communities and some of lovely Main Street in Port Washington. People are also free to take photos anywhere they like either with our group or on their own. Only photos taken within the covered area and during the two hour period of our walk will be eligible to compete in the free, optional contest on the Scott Kelby site.
Details to follow on the walk route. Stay tuned!
Your walk leaders will be:
- Ilene Schuss, who has led walks for many years and runs the Long Island Photowalkers group on Facebook
- Roy Schneider, an award winning, published photographer with a great portfolio of photos of this area and other places on Long Island. Our cover photo was done by him at the Port Washington Docks at sunset.
