Westhampton Beach, New York

On a very windy day in the Hamptons.  I love so many things about Westhampton Beach, it is one of the few towns that doesn’t have a highway going through the village.  Enjoy the shops, and Beach Bakery where you will find a delicious breakfast and pastries.    Everything is really close together including a must walk to the beach.  Close to sunset you will find a lot of whitetail deer out for dinner or strolling down the middle of the roads.  For a wonderful evening step into The Westhampton Beach Performing Arts Center to see special events.

Starr Boggs restaurant is open for the summer through most of the Autumn and has a variety of fresh seafood to choose from such as  Atlantic salmon, red snapper, and blackfish.  This restaurant has enjoyable outdoor music entertainment.

Take the nearby train or the Hampton Jitney for about 2 hours to New York City. 

Here’s to never giving up!
