Some people go to the Hamptons every year and rent gorgeous homes in fancy beach towns. I’ve been there. I’ve stayed in homes that cost tens of millions (thanks to my former boss & his family, for inviting me!) I’ve driven his fancy cars, shopped at charming grocery stores that sell Perrier and prosciutto to millionaires, eaten gorgeous meals under arbors in the garden, and had fresh flowers in my room. Oh my. What an experience! But for me, I’m actually content with a simpler life, too. Want to know where we go for our summer outings with all the Brooklynites? We go to this lakeside camp with cabins and a lodge, just about an hour north of Manhattan. It’s kind of the best thing ever. I’ve been going here since the year 2000.
Ha. Not exactly the Hamptons. But we all love it. And….anybody want those Saarinen Tulip Chairs? Oh man, I do! I’ve been scheming for years how I could get a moving truck full of those, but they won’t sell. 🙁 I think the older woman who runs the place has caught on that they’re valuable.
And…pictures of the camp wouldn’t be complete without the Mini Cooper. This was my previous car and we always took as many people as we could fit in it. 🙂
What you are guys doing for Labor Day Weekend?? Any fun plans?
I love hearing about your lives and have a new interest in learning about other places and lifestyles out there. I mean, someday (gasp) there is always the chance we could leave New York. Though I can hardly picture it as this is all I know. Once in awhile I wonder where we would go if we ever left this place and I actually have no idea (please send suggestions!!!)
