I'm back now.

I spent the weekend camping with my sister and dad at Hither Hills State Park, which is in Montauk all the way at the tippy end of Long Island. The campground was great--right on the ocean. Literally, it was beach, then a dune, then our campsite. The facilities were acceptable. (We only camp in places with flush toilets and hot showers. NO exceptions. I like nature, but I don't like it THAT much.) The only problem with the campground was that almost everyone there had RVs and generators! Bunch of pansies. I hate the rumble of generators when I'm trying to enjoy some much-needed peace and quiet.

The weather was gorgeous during the day--bright and sunshiney. But it was frigid at night! Oh, I went to sleep with many, many layers on. We went hiking and saw the lighthouse at Montauk Point. And we wandered through a couple little towns in the Hamptons to see how the better half live. (I'd live there if I had a couple million $).

Twin took some very pretty pictures and made a Flicker set here.

Welcome back!

Sounds like you guys had a great time.

(I tried to look at the pics but there must be a typo in the link or something because it said "page not found".)

Can I just say that I'd probably be one of them pansies with a generator? OK I probably wouldn't be that bad. I'd just take my portable DVD and iPod. :-P

Who am I kidding? You'd never get me to leave the city in the first place! LOL

Glad you had fun and welcome back!!!!

Woohoo! You're back!

Your sister takes amazing pictures!

And I sooo don't do camping. Ever. I mean, we camped when I was young and I remember have a bladder infection and having to trapse back and forth to the bathrooms all night. Hell. On. Earth.

Oh, and I will be the one with the huge mobile home and stuff because I won't fly Bob has said when we retire we'll get a motor home and travel every where we can. Hey, I'm in!
