No, not the swanky part – Montauk, Sag Harbor, the Hamptons. Ray had a work trip filming at a lab in Cold Spring Harbor and I tagged along with the baby so that I could say I had a “vacation” this summer. It was a nice little getaway. The first night we had dinner at an Italian restaurant near our hotel. I swear, it’s like a foreign country out there. The accent alone is enough to crack me up. And so many of the stereotypes hold true. From my keen, anthropological observations, I was able to determine that this country’s national bag is the Louis Vuitton. The more upscale parts of the island are quite pleasant and if I had $800K or more to spend on a house, I wouldn’t mind living there (well, if it wasn’t humid).
