Happy 7th of July!
I hope you all had a fun weekend. I just came back from the Hamptons for the first time, and it was fabulous.
Ashley, Bo and I left bright and early on Thursday morning for our adventure to the end of the state.
We drove out to Montauk and climbed the lighthouse. (I love lighthouses.)(And lamp.)
Please don’t move. Thanks. And thanks for letting me steal your photo.
Apparently it was the first lighthouse in the state of New York and George Washington approved its building!
Why yes, I am in my happy place.
We built up an appetite with our lighthouse-climbing WOD, so we stopped for lobster rolls at Clam Bar.
Okay, now it’s summer, now that I’ve had my first lobster roll of the season. The roadside ambiance was fun, and the Blue Point was tasty…but I kinda like Luke’s better.
Lighthouses, lobsters and libations all in one day? YES PLEASE.
We did the “Summer in a Bottle” tasting, and I basically died of happiness. There was a bubbly, a rose and a sauvignon blanc. I drink bubbly and sauvignon blanc year-round, so it’s always summer in my glass.
And we did all of this by 3pm! It felt like a few days in one, but it was a great start to our trip before we headed to Blake’s parents’ place, our home base for the weekend. (And a fabulous one, at that.)
I’ll stop here, before this gets too long but will be back with Part Deux.
What’d you do for the 4th? What food or drink is your equivalent of “Summer in a Bottle?”
