Now Summer feels like it is over...

   My oldest son goes back to college tomorrow..... After a very cool week it feels like summer has come to an end. My youngest has been at pre-season since last Monday. Since then we have tried to cram in all the things we wanted to do before it all comes to and end.  (Vacation will be another post!)

I love summer. This week my son took out the kayak for the last time here and the 2 "boys" took turns going out in it. There is a nice cove with a beach on the North Shore where I can sit and they can go out without me getting too nervous!

When he takes it up to school, I can only imagine what he does! There are beautiful lakes in CT and he says there are always lots of people out in their boats...We also went "out east" to the Hamptons and Montauk for the day. It can take about an hour and a half, but it is worth it as you feel as if you have been away! We go to Southampton to a pretty park to break up the trip...

to the many shops,
then hang on the beach in Montauk (one of the prettiest places in the world-to me),

eat a a place called "The Lobster Roll"

and finish up with ice cream in East Hampton.  
Tonight I am making the requested last meal! Tomorrow we will go to an early football scrimmage to start off the season. My youngest plays center, field goal defense and is the long snapper (I think that's right?)-don't get me on my lack of football knowledge. I finally understand the game!

"The End" (a Long Islander's inside joke)


  1. Your trip sounds like a lot of fun and of course has to be when you are with family! Thanks for sharing your pictures. I have only had glimpses of the Hamptons on Ina Gartens cooking show!

    Stop by if you get a chance, I'm having a giveaway!


  2. Sweet memories of Summer 2010! Life with the children just moves a little too fast sometimes. Thanks for sharing.

  3. What a busy time, end of summer. I clicked on your link and enjoyed reading your clam sauce recipe - different from what I'd make, so I'll have to give it a try.

  4. What a wonderful last few days of summer....I'm still getting sad that my littlest went to first grade and is away all day! :( Now it's time to cheer for the Yankees!!!! :)
