For our two year wedding anniversary we decided to take the ferry to Nantucket. The forecast called for rain (of course–it rained the day we got engaged, our wedding day, and our one year anniversary), but we packed jackets and went anyway. Lucky for us it didn’t rain a drop until two hours before our ferry left this evening.
We stayed in a delightful b&b, the Brass Lantern Inn, and rented bikes to tour the island (we biked more that 25 miles in less than a 24 hour period!). Nantucket is by far one of the most charming and breathtakingly beautiful spots I’ve ever been. At every turn I was oohhing and ahhing. Lots of large colonials from the 1700s and cobble stone streets downtown, then off in the villages there were tiny little shingled cottages sitting right at the oceans edge. We walked the dunes, discovered a cranberry bog and spent a few hours watching the seals swim by.
We definitely want to return as we felt there was much more to see (like the Whaling Museum). If you’ve never been to this little New England island, I consider it a must-see place for anyone — you should go!
