A Walk Around East Hampton

Saturday was sunny, warm and gorgeous. Perfect summer weather
Are you up for a walk around East Hampton?
A new cygnet was swimming in Town Pond.
The Mulford Farmstead's garden was flourishing.
Sweet door knocker.
Adjacent to Town Pond is South End Cemetery.
The notable tomb of Lion Gardiner designed by James Renwick Jr. 
The Gardiner Windmill (1804)
Walking from Town Pond's historic district you pass lovely homes.
The Huntting Inn is also on the way.
Plenty of shops to see.
The Monogram Shop, a favorite for hostess gifts.
Always good people watching at Babette's
Convertible tops = a must.
Classic homes with old gardens.
Just across the street from the Hook Mill
More about Hamptons Windmills here.
A look inside the East Hampton Star office is a look back in time.
The Clinton Academy Museum is next door.
I saw the orange exhibition banner outside Clinton Academy and recognized the arttists' name. I was familiar with Claus Hoie's winter scenes of East Hampton as featured in Dan's Papers. This exhibit "Claus Hoie watercolors Insects: real & imaginary" features works with insects as a uniting theme. Hoie was born in Stavanger Norway in 1911 and died in 2007 in East Hampton. A review of the exhibition from the Sag Harbor Express here. The show is up until June 30th. Definitely worth a look.

The East Hampton Library is on the other side of the Star offices.
Across the street is Guild Hall
As you face Guild Hall, the street bordering on the right is Dunemere. 
Dunemere will take you past the Maidstone Club
and to Egypt Beach

You will need an East Hampton resident permit to park your car at Egypt Beach.
It is a short bike ride from the Huntting Inn if you are visiting!
#6 East Hampton Library, #13 Guild Hall, #20 Mulford House, #15 Home Sweet Home
There is so much more to see. I hope you enjoyed this little walk around East Hampton!
