Trip to Nantucket, Pt. 3


Hello!

Continuing now with the latter half
of my second day on Nantucket . . .

Later in the afternoon, we went to the Whaling Museum
to meet up for the Historical Society's Walking Tour

Famous view of Straight Wharf
(one of the stops on the tour)

Long view

Lovely home, and a perched seagull :)

"Sunken Ship"

My seagull friend
(he was so unfazed by humans-- he kept
nearing closer and closer to our group!)

One last shot

Picturesque antique shop across the way

The Athenium

One of the most grand mansions on the island

 Beautiful roses

Amazing shadow

After the tour, we went to dinner
at Cap'n Tobey's Chowder House . . .




Malibu Bay Breeze ♥

Scallop pasta with marinated grape tomatoes

Enjoying the sunset in the
gazebo at Tavern Square

Steamship Authority docking

Nantucket Bike Shop

Gorgeous

On one of the docks

Admiring the roses on the walk back

Straight Wharf in the evening

What a view!

Mom

Without a doubt, my favorite spot on the island

At the Juice Bar for some dessert

We certainly weren't the
only ones with that idea!

Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough
in a homemade waffle cone
(it smelled, and tasted, divine!)

Mom enjoying her vanilla scoop

So beautiful

  4. I am loving this trip with you! The photo with the amazing clipper ship shadow is a beauty. So happy you were on the island to see the roses. Did you get out to Sconset?
    Hope you are keeping cool. It is really murky and hot here. I am ready for some cooler air.

  7. Erin --

    Great pics of some of my favorite sites! Ice cream at the Juice Bar -- YUM!

    As for that "New England Proverb", may I suggest you visit Seagrille for delicious, clam filled, New England clam chowder. :)

  8. Love that whaling museum building..., and the Wharf of course, isn't it just so charming and dreamy! And the boat over the entry way..., how about that for curb appeal..., I will include that in an upcoming post on exterior house decor for sure.
