These cool spring nights have been perfect for sleeping and the weekend was as beautiful as they come our here on the East End. Friday night I slept like a baby and didn't want to get out from under the covers when 6:30am came along. I stayed right there until a little after 7, just because I could, and it was a treat. The day unfolded as a sunny, pleasant one, with the bluest of skies and greenest of grass. We planted our outdoor planters and played around getting the deck in shape in anticipation of a busy season living outdoors as much as in.
This is such a great time of the year - at least here on Long Island. We keep a sweater close at hand for cool nights but luxuriate in the warm sun during the day. Even the rain is tolerable because the results are worth the price and there is color everywhere.
This is our last week of peace and quiet here in East Hampton and I am going to enjoy every last hour of it. I don't mind the season or the tourists - at least not until August! We seem to enter into Memorial Day weekend with lots of enthusiasm because we love it here, where the ocean meets the shore and nature is the star. And in this season of optimism and joy we all enjoy its glow.
