ed and i escaped to amagansett a few weeks ago (just like last year) to stretch our country legs and get knocked down by pre-hurricane waves. ok, mostly just myself and small children were taken down by the waves but just go with it.
we shared a beach house with friends complete with cool breezes, an outdoor shower, and a sandy path leading directly to the beach.
the food scene in the hamptons is ever changing (and mostly fantastic) but i'm certain that grilling fresh fish in the backyard and beach picnics surpass all restaurant establishments.
and real-estate snooping! admiring gorgeous hamptons homes from afar is half the fun.
