Memorial Day

Burke's parents came to visit for Memorial Day weekend! In addition to livin' it up in Manhattan, we drove to Long Island to visit the Montauk Lighthouse.
Inside the lighthouse, you can climb a tiny spiral staircase to the top of the tower.
Here's the view from the top.
Then we went down to the beach and walked on the shore.
We also went to a radio tower nearby that's no longer in use but was supposedly used by the military for mind-control experiments. Check out this awesome photo of Burke's mom acting like she's gonna climb the fence! (Her idea!)
On our way home, we ate dinner at a little crab stand and then stopped to marvel at one of the beautiful Dutch-style windmills that were all along the road in the Hamptons.
