Nantucket, Beyond Summer

I wonder how many summer visitors to the island of NantucketDSC_3891 have fantasized about not returning to their year round homes. DSC_3703 As Summer slips away and the summer tourists and visitors leave by ferry and plane, how many of those who have fallen in love with this small island, actually stay through Autumn?  I found out that September is a very beautiful time to be on Nantucket. DSC_3856 I’ve just returned and wish I could have stayed on and on. DSC_3825 I’d like to continue my daily walks around Brant Point, wander the cobblestone streetsDSC_3887 and end the day with golden sunsets. DSC_3762 I am tired from a long 3 day drive, and have hundreds of images to cull through, but I want to give you just a hint of the magic she shows…

    Never been to Nantucket. Martha’s Vineyard has similar charms. We visited a few years ago now, during a New England trip. Blissful.

    Jayne,
    I’ve been to Cape Cod but not to Nantucket…it looks like heaven. Are there quite a few full time residents? Sign me up.

    I’ve heard a lot about it – now I’ve seen it I can understand your love affair with it – such a beautiful place – but three days driving!

    Not too shabby. You make me miss the clinking of sailboat riggings and the lapping of waves. I need to get to the shore one more time before the cold sets in….

    My Mother, Grandmother and I visited Nantucket last summer. I remember as we were rushing to meet our ferry, the last day of our visit, My Mother and I were fantasizing about how awesome it would be, to “accidentally” get abandoned, by our ferry, on Nantucket. Yes I too can’t wait to go back. Nantucket kindled a love in my soul, for it’s classical New England charm, yet with it’s own unique twist. I hope to someday return for my wedding.
    Peace, ~ Sunshine 😀
