Weekend in East Hampton.

We had a lovely weekend at Great Grandma Dorothy’s house. She has had her house in East Hampton since before the Hamptons was “The Hamptons”. One of the great things about knowing a fulltime resident of EH is that they all get access to Georgica Beach, where the Swells go to sun themselves. Thats a pretty nice treat when you’re from the rough-and-tumble Upper West Side of Manhattan, like we are.

As I mentioned earlier, Jack had his first encounter with the ocean. And while I didn’t end up just throwing him in, he did try it out, as you can see below. I was slightly disappointed because Jack did’nt even try to eat a fistfull of sand, although, I am assured by Gran E that I’ll get my chance. In the end, I would say that Jack’s first trip to the ocean had mixed results, but we’ve mooched our way into a weekend at the Jersey shore in two weeks, so he wont have to wait long to try it again.

Bottom line for the weekend: Lobster dinner is delicious and there is nothing funnier than seeing a baby that is simultaneously terrified and fascinated by the water.

Assesing the situation

“It’s new, but I can handle it”

Step one. inspect water.

“Whats all the fuss about? Drop me in there!”

Step two: realize that water is scary.

  1. First time seeing Grandma Dorothy in just about 50 years…she hasn’t changed a bit! Have been following Jack’s development since his birth. What a charmer. Only time I saw his Dad was when he was just about Jack’s age, and he was crying in his crib!!! Here’s to the joys of friendship and staying in touch over the decades….
