A perfect morning.
What makes the perfect weekend getaway? A playlist of Talking Heads albums, a checklist of must-see spots, a comfortable pair of jeans, a surfboard, and naturally, a sweet ride. All the elements came together as photographer Emily Rosser and I hit the road, cruising from New York City through Rockaway, Queens, then east through the Hamptons out to Montauk. We hit the open road in our GLK 350 4MATIC as the sun rose on a brisk September morning, making stops to eat and explore along the way. Join us as we say good-bye to summer. We pulled up to Rockaway Taco and Veggie Island for a smattering of baked eggs, avocado, freshly made kale juice, and iced coffee. With the vibrant colours and loud music it almost feels we’ve been transported to a tropical island.

The corner is mostly a hang out spot for the early morning crowd; located only steps from the local surfing beaches, bare-footed patrons filtered in for their post-dawn patrol breakfast. “The waves were small – but we saw a whale,” a local surfer tells us.
