'Afternoon, all ♥
Thank GOD the weather cooled down
a bit today... on Monday, it was over 100
degrees where I lived-- probably the most
hottest day I've ever experienced here in my life.
It was so excruciatingly unbearable-- particularly
because I do not own a single air conditioner in
my house; my poor kitty was panting so much I
had to wet her down with a cold towel for hours;
and as for me, I took about twelve ice cold
showers during the course of the evening...
Man, oh man!
As for today, it's in the mid-80s, which is fine by me
... I just hope it continues to stay that way!

View from Sea Street
The next morning, Mom I and walked over to
the First Congregational Church and climbed up
the tower to soak in its outstanding view . . .
(Click on following photos for better views)
I have to be honest with you again, though:
this excursion did not exactly mix well with my
irrepressible fear of heights; walking up and down
those exceedingly narrow flights of stairs made me
feel like I was James Stewart in the movie Vertigo...
But, alas, I made it out alive-- and once I was down
at a reasonable level, I began to relax and snap away again . . .

Now, let's go for another walk around town. . .
One of Main's stately homes
A rare sight to see in Nantucket:
a house in disrepair
More gorgeous roses ♥
I love this house
Could have got this confused with our inn!
A Civil War (?) memorial
I was so in love with this house!
Charming, sand-strewn street
The Rose and Crown, where
we had our second lunch
Inside the pub
(I could have sworn I took a photo of my dish... grrr!
Well, I'll just describe it for you instead: I had a Chicken
Quesadilla with caramelized onions, montery jack cheese,
and refried black beans with sour cream and salsa.... ♥!)
