did we just dream the flights? are we in denmark? the Hamptons are quite spectacular, and resemble the Danish West Coast. Estuaries, sand dunes, ocean breeze, moisture with salt in the air – a place where one just cannot get around falling into a deep state of relaxation.
OK, the houses look a little different, particularly in size. Our first day was spent in true style, in a hideaway paradise in West Hampton, with our friends evelyn and bart. I tried stand-up paddleboarding for the first time and quite enjoyed it, today my body tells me that it was a new experience with a nice dose of “Muskelkater”. The camera survived its waterproof test in the pool yesterday. Robinson is now master of a smooth 360 on the trampoline. I lost in ping pong to Spencer in an exciting match that did not quite live up to the drama of Federer vs. Roddick.
The mix of big city life and relaxed ocean living here in NYC / Long Island seems quite appealing. Not sure if the recession has made this living model more realistic than before, but the size of the houses here suggests that one needs a large inheritance or have sold a risky startup to google. Heading East today, to Montauk, the little town furthest East on this pleasant island.
sand makes us all happy…
