So, I had not been to the Hamptons since 1993! I don’t know that a whole lot has changed in the past 15 years, other than the advent of the internet and cell phones!! The Hamptons are easy to love for their:
- Wonderful accommodations – wendy g and jorge’s Bridgehampton home was so perfect for our gang! If I didn’t love you guys so much, I might be jealous that your 2nd home is nicer than our 1st home!! Social time by the pool was a perfect pre-amble (and post-amble) to our fun-filled nights of wedding events. Plus, they count Howard Stern as one of their neighbors! And no, I did not do anything stalkish but was excited to see the “road that leads to Howard’s house”.
- Great company – We could have fun with wendy g, jorge, coots, and Karl Uber crammed into a room at the motel 6. But there ain’t no such thing as motel 6 in the Hamptons! Kimmers’ dispatches from Hampton Bays added lots of comic relief too!
- Gorgeous weather – the sky was so blue it was almost purple. Even storms are pretty in the Hamptons.
- Lush and green - landscaping must be one of the top industries in the Hamptons. Every inch of every yard was immaculate. And for privacy, people have walls of trees or bushes – privets are way more aesthetically pleasing than brick or stone walls but provide the same amount of privacy.
- Meatloaf sandwiches – I am still reminiscing about that meatloaf sammich on Saturday. There are lots of cute little country markets with tasty treats. Sunday’s shrimp salad for my “brunch” kicked ass too!
The one thing that sucks about the Hamptons is the traffic. But it is not hard to understand why everyone and their brother wants to be there! And traffic, no matter how dense, is somehow less annoying when it is made up of exotic cars, each one finer than the last! The last time I saw such a parade of fancy rides was when I was in the golden triangle in Milan. Or maybe at the Crab Carnival in West point.
