This weekend was by far my favorite weekend this year. After having Gunner in February we were confined to the four walls in our house because it was too cold or not appropriate to bring a newborn to certain places. Now that’s he’s a couple of months older and the weather has been on nice breezy days here in New York, we decided to finally take that drive we’ve wanted to do for so long, the drive out to the tip of Eastern Long Island to see the world-famous Montauk Point Lighthouse. Just like with any trip we take we pick a spot to eat for breakfast and it’s never your typical Denny’s or iHop, it’s a town breakfast spot.
We ended up going to Estia’s in Sag Harbor, NY. It was a tiny spot, yet filled with gorgeous landscape. There isn’t much room inside to wait, but that didn’t bother us since the outside is absolutely gorgeous. There were enough tables and benches for people to sit at and plenty of grass for kids to run around on while you waited for your table. The inside is literally the size of a tiny home, but the way they set everything up made you feel at home. I had the typical pancakes, eggs and bacon, which was delicious. It tasted fresh and weird because I’m not use to fresh pancakes. My spouse got Robbie’s Gringo Hash which was red beans with chorizo, rice, two eggs, corn tortillas and avocado– WOW! For being Peruvian, I’m not much of a beans girl, but that dish was delicious! I got a glass of FRESHLY squeezed orange juice and he got FRESHLY squeezed glass of grapefruit- YUM! Check out our video of that day including the look, feel and view of Estia’s here.
After breakfast we had to drive one more hour to our final destination, along the way we saw a huge windmill, the Old Hook Mill. It was too gorgeous we ended up pulling over to the side of the road and took a few pictures. After a two-hour ride we reached the Montauk lighthouse. It was a gorgeous brisk day to walk on the land, enjoy the waves, collect rocks, take photos and walk up to the lighthouse. The Montauk Point Lighthouse is the oldest lighthouse in New York State. The Lighthouse was authorized by the Second Congress, under President George Washington, in 1792 and was completed in 1796. It still serves as an aid to navigation with views of Block Island Sound, Atlantic Ocean and beyond. For more information on hours, prices and history check out their website.
