I enjoyed a wonderful week on Nantucket with my family. Really, this quaint island off the coast of Massachusetts is one of the most beautiful places I have ever visited.We are fortunate to come every August for a week to enjoy all of Nantucket’s beauty.
I had one mantra for the week and this was it!
But for those that really know me, I am not much of a good relaxer…but this trip, I really did take it down a notch!
The flowers on Nantucket are unbelievable. Gorgeous.Every morning we took a nice walk and enjoyed the cobblestone roads and peaceful sites.
We biked almost every day too, taking in a beach and perhaps a dip to cool off along the way.
Here Chelsea and Russ arrive at Ladies beach.
This trip since we have 2 kids going off to college this fall, we saved a bit of cash and made breakfast and lunch pretty much every day. We loved the baguette’s for sandwich making at this sweeeeeeet bakery– we bought one almost every day. 🙂
We also did enjoy a wonderful sail in the Nantucket sound on the Endeavor.
Here the boys wait for the boat to come back to the harbor so we could get aboard.
Russ and I enjoyed a refreshing cold Nantucket beer while we sailed the Nantucket sound….now that is relaxing.
We left the dock at 5:30 so the weather was perfect and the sun was slowly setting.
And in the midst of all the fun and relaxing, my agent called about another book deal! After much thought, I declined the offer, but….never a dull moment!
Although I am very sad to say farewell to Nantucket, I am very much looking forward to seeing the best chocolate lab in the world, Ms. Lucy and gearing up for the fall schedule.
Hope you all had a wonderful week and look forward to sharing recipes later this week!

Such great pictures! I can’t believe I’ve never visited Nantucket. After reading this post, I’m convinced that I need to go! 😀
Yes, Sarah…definitely put Nantucket on your ‘places to visit’ list…a great escape and you feel like you are going back in time.
New to your blog, but love your fabulous pictures of people, places and things!
Thanks so much, I’m living vicariously through your vacations until I take off for 16 days in Italy in 2 wks. I’m following the fodmap for SIBO, and wondering about my dietary challanges, but life’s an adventure! Ciao! Karyn
