Case of the Mondays? Not when you wake up to breakfast at Ruschmeyer's. It was healthy, simple and delicious and held us over that morning at the beach. That is, until we started craving lobster rolls, again.
Energized from breakfast, we packed up and headed to Ditch Plains to watch the surfers- I could do this for hours.
You can really work up an appetite watching others surf. We hopped in the car to check out the recommended seafood joint, Duryea's, if not for the food, then for the ambiance. You feel like you're in a small coastal New England town.
He's her lobster.
We drove around a bit to scope out some of Montauk's other popular spots, Navy Beach and Surf Lodge. Navy Beach is nestled on a private beach on Fort Pond Bay, a beachy setting for lunch or a great place to have drinks during sunset. I said it before but returning to Ruschmeyer's proved to always surprise us. This time, we found ourselves walking onto the set of an editorial photoshoot. With shirtless male models throwing a frisbee around, I thought the gods must be crazy. We were having a great minimoon as is. Jill and I parked ourselves at the picnic benches to check some work emails while checking out the scene in front of us. The photographer sat down across from us and snapped a shot of us happy campers.
Felt like it was time for us to call it a day. Montauk, until next time. We hit the road only to sit in Hamptons traffic and get tempted to stop at local farm stands.
Stay bitten ;)
