summer at the beach

East Hampton Main Beach

Some snapshots from our recent trip to East Hampton. No glitz - there never is as we're very low key.
No celebrity sightings thank goodness. No pink chests or other stuff to lug home. Lots of great weather, grub and relaxation. And, stay tuned as the best is yet to come next week in Polaroid. Have a lovely weekend!

Oh how FUN?! :)

ambika said...

The vintage cars are too neat. I can't decide which I like best of the old Impala, Jag or Mercedes.

Jessie Cacciola said...

wow, i love old cars!! there's one for sale a few blocks down from my house -- like really old (like no windows-big steering wheel-old). but what would I do with it?

thanks for sharing these finds and thank scott for being so patient (us readers really appreciate it). xo

yep, the vintage cars out there totally rock! we're always oohing and aahing them. as far as new cars, we saw over a dozen new maseratis at $200k a pop. guess the downturn in the economy/fuel prices hasn't been a problem for some people ;)?

krissy, the beetle looked to be completely original and was a beauty.

amber, all of the above works for us.

jessie, scott says no problem!

I can't believe there will be *better* photos to come...these are amazing! Love the vintage dressers and shots of the cars. Sounds like you're having a great summer :)

These are all dreamy. A vintage convertible "beatle" is my absolute dream car!!! Can't wait to see your polaroids you lucky girl you!

Elizabeth said...

Great images!!! Felt like I took a trip with you guys :)
Thanks for the comment on the Cold Play post. We had very good seats and I used the zoom on the camera. My daughter and I did scoop up some of the tissue butterflies :)

quaint handmade said...

i also love the beetle, but scott would go with the impala because it's an ss, whatever that means.

the lil bee - i hope the polaroids are better - they're just so dreamy like memories.

ricky - your photos are absolutely amazing.

elizabeth - i would have saved some of those butterflies, too.
