Never Enough Nantucket

 

Nantucket is a place that has many faces.  I can never get enough of it.   Though it is a small island 30 miles out to sea,  there is DSC_3889something for everyone.  Nantucket history can be found in the buildingsOLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAand over the cobblestone streets.  OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERADSC_3681One needs only to hop a bicycle or even go by foot to see the wide Atlantic ocean from a nearby beach. IMG_2249 Fishing, sailing, surfing DSC_3703and swimming make this an active summer place.  Book shops, art galleries, museums and shops abound, for every taste.  IMG_2215Shoppers won’t leave empty handed.IMG_2219 I found an Anne Packard painting that I wanted to take home,

September is a beautiful time to visit.  Many of the roses are beginning to produce hips, but some still bloom.  DSC_3728The wide range of late blooming flowersDSC_3805 make up for any June bloomer you may be missing!  DSC_3733 The window boxes never cease to amaze me.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA  The variety is appealing and each one is more beautiful that the last!  IMG_2209The September skies produce sunsets that know no rival.

Nantucket is the kind of place that makes you think you could write a novel, or paint a masterpiece, or weave a basket. DSC_3856 Each year that I leave, I am thankful that such a place exists, and grateful that there are good people in the world that work hard to make sure she stays so pristine.

This is a place that never loses its charm for my family.  It is etched in the soul for many who step upon her shores.IMG_2173

    I’ve never been but would love to visit and I’d probably prefer September to the crowds of summer. Thanks for the tour, the armchair travel is highly underrated.
