I love lighthouses. There’s something very romantic, beautiful and magnificent about them. They’re the perfect metaphor. The Montauk lighthouse is a two hour drive away from the city.It might even take longer on a weekend in the summer so be sure to plan accordingly. We ate at lovely seaside restaurant surrounded by rich Hamptonites and not-so-rich tourists like us. Almost everything in the Hamptons is pricey so bring your own food if you’re on a budget and have a picnic on the beach at the foot of the light house.
It was also a great trip to hangout with Bea who was in town for few days. Bonne flew all the way from Canada to see Bea. Donna is the perfect person to bring on a trip because she’s fun and organized! haha. Tons of pictures below. Hover over or click on the photo for captions!
The lighthouse from the parking lot.
We paid ten dollars to go up the lighthouse.
While the views are magnificent, I’d say skip the ten dollar fee if you’re on a budget.
This is what the top of the lighthouse looks like.
It’s a giant lightbulb!
View from the top.
Very well preserved.
Group picture, of course.
Going through some foliage on our way to the beach!
Had to stop for some pictures!

Back when I was visiting Egypt, women actually went in the water in these clothes.
Waiting for our food.
I’m so bad with restaurant names that I always have to take pictures of their mats and napkins.
Donna refusing to admit she’s photogenic.
Awkwardly pointing at a boat.
Texting on the beach.
Sand + JVPs = JVP cross! haha
I wish I could tell you more about this statue but I’m not that type of tourist.
Bea was only in NY for a few days so everyone had their picture taken with her like the Filipinos that we are.
It was cloudy that day but not so bad for pictures.
Lots of fisherfolks on the beach.
Our final stop was an excellent Indian restaurant. It’s the best one I’ve been to, in fact. Sadly, I was too hungry to pause and take pictures of anything.
