I will say that it was even better the next morning when I grilled the rest of the vegetables for my famous vegan wraps (also adding leftover scallops and shrimp). Taking those wraps to the beach was a perfect, healthy, summer lunch. My friend said it was the best sandwich she has had in the last 10 years and vowed to get rich stealing my recipe.
I went for a long walk down the beach to look at these enormous seaside mansions and to get my exercise in. I was overcome with energy cruising this Gold Coast and started running. Sure enough my knees were barking and I smartly pulled up, jumped into the cool ocean water and started swimming -- truly a great workout! No wonder swimming Olympian Michael Phelps needs something like 8 Billion calories a day!
I will say that my poorest move was ordering a mudslide at Cyril's...well, poorest for dietary purposes. The poorest move was ordering from the bartender before she asked me what I wanted - there is a very strict code at Cyril's on how to order a drink. The following day I actually poured out my beer at Cyril's. Cyril's is a seafood restaurant and outdoor bar where hundreds congregate in the gravel parking lot. Another friend was drinking a syrupy strawberry daiquiri and she dropped it accidentally covering my legs in sticky frozen drink. Well, I would never waste a beer in my old days, but today, I really don't have much use for it, so with the one beer I had at Cyril's I simply poured it over my legs to get rid of the sticky daiquiri much to the delight of my friends...sticky beer is less of a nuisance, and there was not a hose near by. Besides water was better for me.
The weekend in the Hamptons was terrific and I caught the last Hampton Jitney bus back Sunday night (driving back with my friend at 4 AM did not particularly interest me).
I really love picking up summer fruits and vegetables and yes, some fish, and having an absolute bang-up feast!
