Well it’s been quite a while, hasn’t it?? Sorry for the lapse in posting, now on to Nantucket!
Because this was our third trip there together, we decided to rent a place instead of staying in a bed and breakfast. If you want to splurge, stay at the Union Street Inn. We stayed there four years ago and it’s amazing but too $$$ for us!
This time we stayed in this apartment, which we found on Home Away. If you haven’t checked out Home Away, definitely click around before you book your next trip. Amazing house and apartment rentals. The apartment was a ten minute walk from town, a short a bike ride from beaches, and it had beautiful views of the harbor.

It was really nice having more space to hang around for half the price of a hotel or inn. My only complaint about the place is that there was a lot of road noise! It’s not on a main road but there seemed to be a lot of noisy truck traffic during the day.
This was the view from our balcony around sunset.
I was really digging this dog’s hairdo.
An early morning shot of Main Street.
This is a government sign from the 1970s. Obviously we’re not the best listeners.
I guess I could put up with having a house on this beach.
But only if you really twisted my arm.
Ok so now get ready for my million sunrise pictures. On our last morning there, I couldn’t sleep. I never sleep well on “travel days.” Whether I’m heading out or coming home, I can’t sleep. So I woke up at 5 and watched Antiques Roadshow until I saw this gorgeous sunrise start to take shape. I snapped a bunch of pictures and these are just a few. I didn’t adjust the color at all.
If you’re going, eat at Dune, Queequeg’s, Even Keel (for breakfast), and The Boarding House. The beaches are beautiful, there are plenty of bike trails, and we always have a great time. We’re going to try to keep up our streak of going every two years. I should probably start saving now.
