Hamptonite and founder of lifestyle site The Select 7, Pamela Schein Murphy talks her perfect day on the East End.
"Mornings at the beach are the best. First thing on the agenda is a cup of coffee and a walk down to Ocean Road Beach in Bridgehampton. After I’m fully awake and caffeinated I head to Flywheel (1 Bay St., Sag Harbor, 899-4256) or SLT (460 Pantigo Rd. Unit 1, East Hampton, 212-355-1737). These are my two current favorites and I find alternating them to be working pretty well this summer.
After a shower I’ll head to Estia’s Little Kitchen (1615 Bridgehampton-Sag Harbor Tpke., Sag Harbor, 725-1045) for breakfast. The A’s Pop bowl with their green sauce is my all time favorite. I’ll make a quick stop into Lifestyle (127 Main St., Sag Harbor, 725-1667) to maybe buy a cute dress or pair of denim shorts (actually, I could buy just about everything in the store), and then late morning has me out on a paddleboard, either on Sagg Pond, or, if it’s a super calm day, on the ocean.
Lunch is on my deck, cooked by my husband Chef Marc Murphy, and is a giant pot of clams and shrimp bought fresh at The Seafood Shop (356 Montauk Hwy., Wainscott, 537-0633) with a bottle or two of Wölffer Rosé. Then we’ll spend the afternoon at home, playing Bocce and hanging on the beach until it’s time to head out for dinner at Sunset Beach (35 Shore Rd., Shelter Island, 749-2001).
The day ends with a stop at Buddha Berry (125 Main St., Sag Harbor, 808-3888) for their dairy and gluten free frozen sorbets with peanut butter filled pretzels and graham cracker dust toppings."
