I took my Audi R8 to Montauk this summer, and boy does this baby vrrooom fast. Summer never feels complete without a car and the open road. You just feel free, unstoppable, and more excited to explore than ever before. I was out east for a weekend work trip…but managed to squeeze in a ton of R&R. Montauk is a place I’ve been going to for years, but this time, it felt new, exciting, and special. With the usual stops, like dinner at Crow’s Nest and countless hours in the roman baths at Gurney’s, I also ventured out to Sag Harbor. We sailed away in a friend’s boat called The Kiwi in Sag Harbor out to the beautiful untouched shores of Gardiner’s Island. Some of the most peaceful beaches are out East…as are the memories.
There’s certainly a part of me that has outgrown the party scene that swarms the Hamptons each summer. Suddenly, I prefer to take early morning runs on the water, hikes on the cliffs during the day, and eat early dinners on the deck. That’s what I’ll miss most about this summer. The slow pace. The sun in my face. A healthier lifestyle…like simply being outside with the people I love. The sweetness of our hot American summers by the beach always warms my heart.
