A Day In Montauk

Can you believe it?! Saturday was 50 degrees on Long Island and we had to take advantage. We took a day trip about an hour and a half east to Montauk, or "the end" as we Long Islanders call it. It's a major tourist destination with the fourth oldest lighthouse in the United States. I have visited frequently since I have been a little girl and this small fishing and beach town always makes me happy.

We decided to go visit the lighthouse first. We couldn't climb the lighthouse because it was out of season but we walked along the beach and took advantage of a few photo ops.

After walking for a while on the beach by the lighthouse we decided to go into town and get a quick bite to eat and check out some of the shops. The only thing is that since it was off season more than half the shops and restaurants were closed for the season. We managed to find somewhere to eat and there were a few shops open for us to browse.

We head home after that and it even felt good just to ride through Montauk and  the Hamptons with the windows down and not be freezing. It was refreshing and much needed. I am looking forward to having another day trip to Montauk when it's a little warmer and in season but this was the perfect day to help me get out of my winter rut.
