“The thing about light is that it really isn’t yours; it’s what you gather and shine back. And it gets more power from reflectiveness; if you sit still and take it in, it fills your cup, and then you can give it off yourself.” ✨ - Anne Lamott
I love Nantucket. It's really hard not to love that sweet little island. And although the summer is magic, I think the off season might be my favorite time to visit. The crowds have gone back to their busy lives, and the island slows down a bit. Back to real island time. And I love that.
There is nothing I love more on these crisp late summer / early fall days than a stroll around the grounds at the Ocean House. It truly never gets old. And even though summer seems to truly shine around these parts, I love this magnificent property in every season. And this little striped number from Elizabeth McKay? It was basically made for such strolls (and for me - I'm kind of obsessed).
I try to get to the sweet little island of Nantucket any chance I get. There is just something about being on the ferry, rounding Brant point and pulling into the Grey Lady's charming harbor that gets me every time. It's one of our favorite places to escape to May thru October, even if we can only make it for a day. Think a day trip isn't doable? Well I've teamed up with Rockport to prove that silly theory wrong with my go-to day trippers guide to ACK below. The only problem? You might never want to leave.
