    1. It was lovely around the lighthouse, yes, Lorelle. I have always found lighthouses fascinating, not least because of their solitary locales.

  1. Dear DDG
    the writer Max Frisch wrote a novel “Montauk”. It’s one of his late works. It’s a beautifully touching love story of an elderly author and his editor – not kitschy at all.
    Enjoy the weekend

  2. I love how you wrote this, Arundhati. It’s so alive with language, so full of rich metaphor and personification, that the writing brings the place vividly alive for the reader. Thank you for sharing this. I do a prose invitation every 2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month. If you’d like me to link this to my next post on July 9, I’d love to include it. ~ Cathy 🙂

  3. Such a beautiful place! Love the history of Montauk – definitely a place that holds itself in time. Sweet photo of Adi and his sister. You look so pretty in your lovely dress and chic hairdo! Hope you are having a great weekend – Neek

  4. Just love seeing places through your eyes, Dippy Dotty Girl! I have heard, heard, heard of Long Island but I have never been there yet. Your pieces give such a strong sense of place, such a good way to feel like one is there. Thank you! Sorry to hear about the flat, but luckily misery loves company. 🙂 Have a great week!

    1. Hi Virginia, thanks! I have watched it indeed but maybe I should rewatch it. So I have been hopping over to your blog and commenting but do not think any of them are going through! :-/ Enjoyed your last few posts. ❤

    1. Oh yes, undoubtedly. That is possibly why New Yorkers head right to it. Cheers girl! Trust you are well. xx

    1. This at the very tip of it, hence you see the difference, Caroline. But LI is upscale on the whole. Good to hear from you and thank you as always! xx

  5. I seem to have missed a few of your lovely posts no doubt due to those WordPress gremlins! We loved LI when we visited back in 2015. Going to spend a few days in Montauk in November when we’re in NY.

    1. The gremlins have declared war on me. On some blogs I have been banished to the spam folders I notice. Heartache. But I will survive.
      Are you visiting NY this year then? Have a wonderful time in Montauk and if you have time for a cuppa coffee/tea in the city, do me give me a shout. xx

    1. Hello Brianji, so out of the blogging loop. We have been on the move. Tuscany and the Balkans. Heading home tomorrow and not looking forward to it. How were your travels?

      1. Looks like we both took a – good – break. Tuscany… Hmmm. I want to buy a house there… 😉 Balkans not sure I even wanna go. Dubrovnik maybe, but without the crowds.
        My travels were fine. 6 weeks of Paris, I can’t complain. Already did a couple of posts.
        A bientôt.

      2. Oh but the Balkans are beauteous. So beauteous that the mind and the eyes boggle. I do not know which boggles more. Dubrovnik is too crowded, but the islands around are dreamy and perfect. My favourite is Korcula. I do hope you will give the Balkans a look in someday.

        Six weeks is a decent stretch. Good enough to feel dazed with the change when you return home. I shall drop by your blog soonest, Brianji. Apologies for the delay. We had some house guests right after our return and now lots of social calls. Trying to get back to writing without getting waylaid.

      3. “Waylaid”. 🙂 love the finery of your writing ma’amji. More the reason to look forward to it. But guests are and should always be a priority. Hospitality is one of the oldest and most respectable human traditions.
        I will give the Balkans further consideration, following your advice.

    1. Thank you Amor. There’s more to Long Island…this is just a peek at it. Lighthouses do have a certain something about them. Possibly the sight of them standing by their lonesome selves? 🙂 xx
