Video: My Weekend Trip To The Hamptons

My husband wants to buy a vacation house out in the Hamptons. No – not the mansions you hear about that celebrities own. I’m talking a very small cottage somewhere deep in the woods of a very quiet town. That’s really what the Hamptons is all about. It’s not all glitz and glam and drunken rides on the Jitney. Well, for SOME people I suppose that’s what it’s all about.

However if you live like a local it’s really just about fresh vegetables, slowing down and soaking in that old American feel.

Here’s a pretty long video (sorry) showing our recent extended weekend trip. We really had a great time – hitting up Montauk’s lighthouse and town fair (where I saw Julianne Moore and Nina Garcia fitting in with the very low key crowd), sipping sparkling grape juice at Wolffer’s Vineyard and walking on the beach after breakfast. It was slow paced and exactly what this family was looking for.
