Lobster roll at the Clam Shack

Labor Day Sunday in Montauk

Yesterday, we took our very first ride to the Hamptons to visit Montauk at the tip of Long Island. The sky was moody and the air chilly, but it never rained as the forecast had predicted. We sat at the beach for an hour watching the choppy gray waves as people sat around us bundled up in long-sleeved tops and sweatshirts. We then took a drive around the entire peninsula, stopping at several overlooks, the Montauk Point Lighthouse, Lake Montauk and a Native American cemetery, a quiet stretch of green next to someone’s driveway. We ended the day strolling the main strip and eating fish at the Clam Shack on the way out of town. By that time, the sun was finally out to make its final appearance before summer unofficially ended.

    I love San Antonio! It’s a great city. Off topic, but I saw your posts about Maine — I am dying to go there now that I’m back in the U.S. as I’ve never been. Your road trip sounds amazing.

    The man in the chair, and the lobster roll photos win my thumbs-up. Having never been to Long Island, it was fun to look up the places you write about on a map and add them to my ‘treasures map’. Melbourne’s Docklands waterfront and St.Kilda beach were my choice for a very sunny Labor Day weekend.

    Thanks Iliana! You know, I never went to St. Kilda while in Oz, will need to visit someday. Sounds lovely.
