Nantucket

Day dreaming about my happy place on this rainy day.....
 Ryan and I returned to Nantucket for our 12th anniversary this year.  I can't put my finger on it, but this is truly my all time favorite place I have ever been.  We did some of the same things we did last year and mixed in some new stuff too.  Cru was a repeat and totally worth it!  Rose and oysters for an early morning lunch.
 Juice bar ice cream was next!
We walked around for a bit and then decided to rent a jeep and cruise the island together. 


 You are allowed to drive cars on great point beach so we spent the rest of the afternoon there!


That night we showered and had pre dinner drinks at tree bar, followed by dinner at Boarding House.


 I will embarrassingly admit we ate two breakfasts and two lunches everyday....the breakfast at 76 Main was so healthy and delicious so we started with that, but we always got a second cup of coffee and another small something to eat around 9!

We loved shopping at Townpool last year and this year they opened a new location and added some entertainment.  They have a fake zero gravity room where they allow you to do photo ops along with a candy store and indoor putt putt.
 Ryan ended up scoring the all time lowest score!!
 We found a new coffee spot called Lemon press one day and can't wait to take kids here next year.  Both my kids love smoothie bowls and theirs looked delicious!
Provisions sandwiches are always a good idea!  For all you Gluten Free peps out there Nantucket has a ton of options, including gluten free bread at Provisions.
 We stopped by the local fish store and Ryan got some chowder.
If we ever rent a house and have a kitchen I would definitely come back and buy some of this fresh local fish.
 We shopped for the kids and biked around town some more.


The Sand Bar has great oysters and frose.  We ended up sitting here for a while drinking frose and listening to a live band.

For dinner that night we went to our favorite spot, Galley Beach.  Watching the sunset before we ate and drank all night was spectacular...seriously doesn't get better than this!

 Ryan and I both just love biking around and picking out dream houses....I think this is one of my favs!
We grabbed lobster salad and chips from Something Natural and enjoyed an afternoon at Steps Beach.

 We kept joking that this particular beach by Brant Point Light house is lined with rocks...Bobo would be in heaven to collect rocks and not sea shells haha!
 The last night we got an uber out to Sconset and spent some time walking around and shopping before dinner at Summer House.  This part of the island has a different and more laid back atmosphere that was so charming.


On our last morning, after our two breakfasts, we biked to Surfside beach and had lunch at the Wharf.

 Another magical week in Nantucket!  Bye Bye Nantucket see you next year with the twins!
