" There's a reason why artists and writers, movie stars and moguls, musicians and composers, fashion designers and decorators, architects and craftsmen, fishermen and farmers have flocked to the Hamptons for all these years. They are drawn by the glorious landscape, the extraordinary light, and the promise of pleasure. One can be social or solitary; active or indolent; walk on the beach or lie in a hammock; rise at dawn or dance the night away. There are precious few places on the planet where there really is something for everyone. The Hamptons have it all. " Pamela Fiori
A trip to the Hamptons has been on my wishlist for as long as I can remember and it seemed the perfect opportunity to visit while our son is living in Manhattan and could hop the train and join us for a long weekend at our rented airbnb Fisherman's cottage in The Springs.
We arrived early on a Wednesday morning via a redeye flight from Oakland. Our timing couldn't have been better as we easily maneuvered our way through a rather empty JFK.
No lines for our rent a car and very light almost non existent traffic to Southampton where we arrived early enough to witness this idyllic hamlet coming to life.
It was the perfect start to a wonderful week.
After grabbing a cup of coffee at The Golden Pear we drove around town completely intoxicated with the beauty that was unfolding around us.
