Big Style

'53 Buick with a waterfall grill. The round side holes are there to help vent the monster engine.

Re Barned

The Southampton Historical Museum restored their old barn. They took the old barn down. Stored all the parts for the winter and re-built it in the old way. It looks real nice.

Summer Perfection

Classic sunset over North Sea Harbor. No wonder the Kardashian's picked this part of the Hamptons.

Time Warp

Today I got to make a studio visit. Rough spaces dedicated to the creative process used to be more common on the east end.

Beach Grass

I would expect that the spacing of beach grass is determined by the lack of nutrients found growing in a hill of sand.

In the Begining

Just a farm house, that what we had on the east end. Farm fields and farmers. When the summer people started to arrive in the early 1900's this house would have been about 50 years old.

Cool & Quiet

The light this morning seemed especially nice as we walked to coffee along Cameron Street. The back of nice stone Chase Bank showing here.

All Quiet

The Atlantic was so flat today it was almost bay like, except that it still had the deep energy of an ocean.

White on White

The local florist Pennington had these fine arrangements poised to go out. Peonies and Baby'-Breath made up most of the white.

Lite Shade

I have mounted a sun-sail over my outdoor table. It gives a nice bit of shade at times. The sale seems OK in most summer weather. Ikea $ 29.00, custom shades run into the thousands.

Mystery Plant

These purple flowers growing wild on the road side look like peas, but might be vetch a ground cover popular in the south.

Pool Color

When building a pool a lot of thought goes into selecting a color for the sides of the pool. Most pools used to be white, the blue tone came from the sky. Most pools now are a darker tone so the sun heats them faster. I started with a dark gray, time and chemicals have faded it to medium gray.

Moon Rise

The moon was close to full tonight as it came up over the beach. Multiple reflections are made by the surf rolling in.

Dog Movers

I got a call from the Liberty Iron Works. 'The dog was being delivered' I ran right over.  WoW what a crew, a 40 FT flat bed. Giant boom truck and 3 pick-up trucks. Lots of crew. .

After they moved the dog from the truck to the parking lot. They then relocated to boom truck and lifted Eddie over the fence and placed him on the hill.

On Friday or Saturday he should be moved to the mounting points under the cones.

The Real Deal

Steel Eddie arrived in Southampton Village last night. We hope to get him installed in the dog park this week.

Dogs Dogs Dogs

The Southampton Village Dog Park opened at 10:30 this morning. We installed the plywood Eddie  while we wait for the new steel Eddie to get painted.

Fresh Fish

Hampton Bays still has an active fishing fleet. Look at Cor-J's for the local catch.

After a day of mostly rain the air was washed clear for a great sunset from the big bridge in Hampton Bays.

Great New Grill

I found this very cool MASTER FORGE stainless steel table top grill at Loews.
After getting it out of the box I set out to test it. First with chicken sausage.
Then with marinaded chicken skewers.
This grill is excellent ! 

When I grilled this chicken I found the heat very even across the whole grill.
I bought my Master Forge from Lowes in Maryland, at $ 99 this seems a very good value.

After a Saturday away I came home to Lupin kernals on the dining room table. The blooms had been a gift from our friend Pat's garden.
