This is "gala" season here on the East End. It seems as though every weekend there are big events to raise lots of money for charities. Tickets can cost hundreds of dollars and are often snatched up by the rich and famous that frequent our shores at this time of year. Occasionally we get to attend one, either because I'm working the door as a volunteer or we were invited as guests. And we get into some pretty amazing places as a result.
Two weeks ago I was able to walk the beautiful gardens of the last house on West End Road, which were tended by twenty gardeners and quite spectacular. Last weekend we were at the Bridge golf course which had formerly been the Bridgehampton Racetrack. Another wonderful venue that normally only a privileged few are able to see. I felt very lucky
There are some incredible places out here and we're fortunate that their owners are sometimes generous enough to allow us inside to look around. What an interesting place this is.
