For our Spring Break this year, we decided to keep it a little bit more on the low-key side of life. Opting for a more local vacation spot, we headed out to the Montauk with a few of our friends for the long St. Patrick’s Day weekend. It was exactly what we both needed. It was the first weekend of business for the Montauk Yacht Club so we had the place mostly to ourselves, barring several Irish men in kilts.
On the drive out to Montauk we decided to stop along the way at Tate’s Bakeshop in Southampton. Utts was slightly tortured by all of the delicious and adorable looking cakes, but she managed to survive. That didn’t stop Maggie from having the richest red velvet cupcake she’s ever had. If you’re ever driving that way, it’s worth a stop.
The beaches were cold and deserted. But for both of us, there is something quite soothing about being near water. It’s always nice to just sit and watch the waves for a while.
We’ve been so distracted at school by work and classes that we haven’t yet felt too sentimental about graduating. But Spring Break slowed us down a bit. As we sat by the empty docks at night, sharing stories and relentlessly making fun of each other, we realized that we don’t know where our lives will take us next. So we sat in the cold on the docks for one more story. By moonlight, we could cherish those moments a little more.
