A slow start was in order after our 20+ hours of travel from Australia to New York.
Our hotel is just great. https://www.sagharborinn.com
Beautiful beds and large rooms overlooking the marina it is peaceful this time of year.
We sat in the comfortable breakfast lounge and planned the day.
It was raining but if it didn’t put off the runners passing our hotel in a fun run it shouldn’t worry us!
Our view from the bedroom!
We decided to go to Main Street for coffee then head off for the half-hour drive to Montauk to visit the Lighthouse.
The Main Street is a mixture of pretty businesses and shops. The flowers have been planted for Spring but the weather’s still cool and rainy.
The marinas are still empty waiting for the season to start, so the town is quiet which suits us.
We got back into the van and headed off through East Hampton to Montauk.
We visited the lighthouse which was shrouded in fog, taking the rocky path near the water to get the best views.
Moving on we went to the Marina which must be so lovely in season but is super quiet now.
Feeling thirsty we stopped at the Montauk Brewery. This was most crowded place we’ve been so far.
The beer is good and their marketing spot on.
I had the watermelon ale. A touch of sweetness to take away the bitter taste. A great aperitif for lunch to follow.
Driving through the still foggy streets I loved seeing the washed grey shingled houses. And the lobster shacks like the one featured in the TV series The Affair
The signs were catchy…..
And the beaches quiet and dreamy.
Back in Sag Harbour I couldn’t help think how different it would be in Summer.
Back to our hotel for a little R&R before dinner. The jet lag has just about gone.

Well you covered some territory today Fran! How fabulous to have the travel group to share the adventures.
What beautiful photos Fran – and I’m very impressed how quickly you slipped into tourist mode. A perfect way to start – with family and friends.
Love the photos, Fran… esp all the funny signs. What a grey day, good that you still got out and about. Bx🤩
Great photos Frances. And I love the atmosphere of the drizzly day and the uncrowded streets and marinas. x
Great photos of your family Fran and of the interesting street signs and art !
What an action packed day at the start of your journey.
Hi Fran…we love the photos, seeing things we don’t even notice living and working in Sag Harbor. It was lovely meeting you and your family and hope you to see you again at the Sag Harbor Inn!
