All in all, I'd say that it was very healing for me, and a good experience. It was great to be back out by the ocean. One of the things that I love about Montauk is going out to the beach and just sitting there and watching the waves roll in, crashing into the dunes. It's very relaxing. Plus, I really only go to Montauk in the off-season, which means that the beaches are pretty desolate, so it's very peaceful. No screaming kids and people running around to get in the way on one's serenity.
I didn't bring any books with me to read (which I usually do at the beach), I very much enjoyed just going out to the beach and becoming mesmerized by the waves crashing into the sand and the rocks. Additionally, I went to a part of the beach out there that I'd never been to before: Ditch Plains. That's where all the surfers go. And, even though it's pretty much off-season for Montauk, the surfers were out there in force, (yes, even though it was a very windy and somewhat balmy day).
So enjoy some of the scenes I took from my camera phone (I know, I need a better quality camera in my phone!). Sit back, relax, and enjoy the therapeutic rejuvenation that I experienced this past weekend, not from a spa but from our very own Mother Nature. :)
