Nantucket visitors

Once in a while we get some unforgettable visitors. As difficult as it sometimes can be to get to Nantucket, they make it. They accompany those who love them and they stick by them through all life's turns. We welcome them. For free.

Here's one of those guests we just had to photograph and show off. Yes. Be amazed!

Nantucket in Louisville Magazine - A Honeymoon Destination

Louisville Magazine
Nantucket a honeymoon destination? Yes according to Louisville Bride Magazine. In Spring/Summer Issue in the article "From Here to Where - Honeymoon Destinations" it writes about Peru and Nantucket.

"Even if you've never visited the Massachusetts island 30 miles south of Cape Cod, you know it: cobblestone roads, secluded beaches, wind-worn gray houses, old money, lighthouses, salmon-red pants, and clam chowder as thick as the locals' accents...Sometimes travel is best if there are no decisions more thought - provoking to make then ordering the cod  or the scallops."

Of course each season Nantucket is charming but according to them "...A September visit, though, is timed perfectly: The island is quieter, but most restaurants haven't yet closed for the season and the water is still warm..." We agree. Here's what they say about places to shop:

'Where to Shop 
Head straight off the wharf up main Street to Murray's Toggery Shop and drape yourself in Nantucket Reds. Later browse Centre Street's boutiques..."

We are so excited to be included  in the article:

Where to Stay
Century House...island's oldest continuously operating guesthouse,  recently renovated.. and is jut a couple of blocks from town...."  Century House welcomes honeymoon couples looking to get away from the hustle and bustle of daily life, stress free. The sparkling beaches are so perfect to explore. Biking is a great activity. And many other. Many couples return years later, or each year in the same room, the same month, building great traditions and memories.

Nantucket Winter Days

It's not even Friday and we have had a very eventful week.

Sadly there was a fire at the Nantucket Community Music Center at 56 Centre St. Firefighters were hard at work. Thankful no one was hurt. You can read more in the newspaper or online at ack.net.

Also India Street is getting a facelift in time for Season.
