Postcards from Nantucket

Long winding driveways paved with white seashells
Sea of Green
Lush landscapes like Jurassic Park

Silver Gray rooftops peak above the tree line

Driftwood Fences
Sandy Feet
American Flags
The Harbour
The Boats
The Yachts
Street Benches
And Parks

Grab a copy of Yesterday’s Island, Today’s Nantucket for a list of all the things you can do on this small, quaint island

Flip flops, baskets and bikes
Runners and joggers, walkers and talkers

Jeeps and Land Rovers, Range Rovers and Mini’s whiz by on Union and Cliff Road to and from Town for coffee, for lunch, to visit Daryia Salon for a pedi, mani or blow out for an afternoon garden party or beach wedding.

Charming names, cute Lanes

Each home is marked by a boulder or rock with a numbered address or a name

Don’t Rock The Boat
Don’t Give Up The Ship
Hunky Dorey
Bottoms Up

What is the story behind each name?

And then there are the stores without names like
167 and 50 Cliff Road which, as locals know, mean the best fish market on the island on Hummock Road and Something Natural which is marked by a boulder and a mail box.

“Fresh” is the key word here on the island. Fresh lobster, fresh salmon, freshly baked Portuguese bread and the best, and yes, fresh yellow and white sweet corn. We ate fresh corn every night.

Whether you visit Nantucket by Sea, by Bike or by Air there is really so much to do especially to dine on the incredible fare. But reservations are a must. Not only do the popular homes rent out one year in advance but restaurants are booked well before the summer season has begun.

The question you will have to answer when choosing your “on island” retreat is
where will you slumber?

An inn or resort a home or an estate with a pool or a court or a short walk to town. Will you rent a car, a jeep, a bike or Vespa? Will you ferry or fly by air, if you dare.

Tom Nevers, Sconset, Dionis, Cliffside, Surfside, Madaket, Brant Point, Cisco or Town.

So much to share. So I’m off yet again on bike ride #2. My early afternoon jaunt to explore so much more

Loving life in Nantucket.

XOXO!

And of course I’m still attached to my work…by phone, text and email. But a lovely venue indeed.  You’ve got questions? I’ve got answers. Where to stay, where to eat or where to play. Just ask.
