It’s hard to believe our Hamptons vacation is half over. The last few days have flown by. Mom and Dad have kept me very busy and I’ve been having a ball! We have done a variety of things so I am getting an exposure to everything the Hamptons has to offer. Sunday we went to the Atlantis Aquarium since the weather was less than stellar but by Monday morning the sun was shining and the heat was on the rise. We started the day off with a walk to the dock and then swimming in our pool. Dad wanted to bbq a feast for us so we picked up some great food at the gourmet meat shoppe around the corner, fresh corn and veggies at the farmer’s market a mile down the road and an array of shellfish from the local fish market. Mom said it was a culinary delight. I just liked looking at all the big shells from the clams!
Tuesday after a morning dip in the pool we drove to East Hampton for a walk around town. We strolled Main Street browsing the high-end shop windows while cooling off with some delicious homemade ice cream from Scoop du Jour. Mom and Dad took me to see the big houses near the water and then they introduced me to Two Mile Beach. Wow….that was spectacular! I was captivated by the ocean and the breeze. Mommy put me down so I could feel the water and the sand between my toes. I liked the water but not the sand so Mom and Dad lucked out that they didn’t have to deal with me attempting to eat it. Not this time anyway. After a taste of the beach, we ventured to Sagaponack for dinner at Townline BBQ. BBQ is not quite my taste yet but Mom and Dad loved it. They chowed down on bbq brisket, pulled pork and ribs while I happily played with my straw and munched on a few veggie sticks. The restaurant was the perfect choice because of the ultra casual setting. There were tons of other kids and the noise level allowed me to talk all I wanted although I was pretty busy with my straw!
Today the weather was cloudy and cool so we decided to make it vineyard day. After lining their stomachs at the Hampton Bays Diner, Mom & Dad took me to the north fork to explore the wineries. We had many great destinations to choose from thanks to all the recommendations that poured in from friends and family but in the end we stopped at Duckwalk North and Osprey’s Dominion Winery. I sat comfortably in my stroller while Mom & Dad sampled an array of chardonnays, reislings and cabernets. After each tasting we sat outside on the deck enjoying some tranquility. I was mesmerized by all there was to look at so I was a good little boy. Came evening we headed further into Westhampton for a great italian dinner at Baby Moon Cafe and then a drive along Dune Road. The rain started up just as we arrived home, luckily. What a great day! I can’t wait to see what they have in store for me tomorrow….
