Hey, hey Thursday!
Friends, one week from today, the kids go back to school.
(Insert me crying right here!)
(Insert teachers crying harder RIGHT HERE!)
I looooooove summer at home with my kids and even though it will be super nice to get back to some sort of a normal work routine, I always grieve the end of this season and the start of school. Sigh. We’re going to really enjoy these next few days and then…off they go.
I’m going to hang on to our summer a bit longer at least here in blog world because I have our vacation to keep recapping! Today, it’s PART 2 of our time in Nantucket with the fam. Let’s recap: We left and headed to Boston, drove to Chatham (on Cape Cod) for two nights, then took the ferry to Martha’s Vineyard for three nights and then took another ferry to Nantucket (where we’ll stay the last 9 nights).
If you missed my first four recap posts, you can see them here:

Nantucket: Part 1 The Ferry
Let’s do it…
It was another beautiful morning at The Nantucket! My very favorite place to run in the mornings is in Nantucket. The weather is just too beautiful for words…and the scenery is pretty good too 😉 . We had to turn in our rental car in Martha’s Vineyard (per the rental car agency), but did get another car in Nantucket for the remainder of the trip. I do not think you need a car in ACK, but I do think you need one in MV!
A little chess and checkers before we headed out for the day.
We had brunch reservations at one of our favorite spots Or, The Whale, so we got ready and enjoyed a nice leisurely stroll though town to get there.
This girl is the sweetest.
A lobster burger for lunch? Yes, please!
I will not do Nantucket justice with my pictures. During the summertime, everything is in bloom, everything is so green…even the air smells good here 😉 .
After a day of enjoying town, we decided to head back to our hotel for an afternoon swim…
Awwww! I love him!
Cleaned up and ready for dinner with my peeps!
The Tap Room for dinner…
…and The Juice Bar for dessert. Green Monster is my favorite flavor!
The next morning, we were up and dressed for our day at the beach! First stop though…
…Black Eyed Susan’s! This is one of the most well-known spots on the island.
…Ashby and I shared the Portuguese scramble.
After breakfast, we headed back to the hotel, packed up our beach gear and then drove to Something Natural to grab sandwiches to take to the beach. This is another iconic spot here on the island! You can grab a sandwich to go or…
…enjoy it in their “yard”.
…it was a glorious day on the beach!
Looking at the seals.
In our happy place.
After a very full day at the beach, we cleaned up for dinner. This dress is HERE.
Look at sweet Ashby up there holding her daddy’s hand. They sure have a special relationship.
Dinner at The Lobster Trap wrapped up our night.
It was great day in ACK 🙂 .
I hope YOU have a great day today! I’ll see you back here tomorrow, friends!!! xx
