A Winning Weekend in Nantucket

I mentioned it in my previous post, but I spent a long weekend on Nantucket with my sister Leslie and a couple of friends—Lorraine (my best friend from high school, who lives in Nantucket) and Laurie, Lorraine’s sister-in-law and a good friend of Leslie’s.

Leslie and Laurie came up with the idea, and I was totally on board! I can’t remember the last time I’ve spent time with Lorraine, and I was excited for the chance to catch up with her. Plus I was super excited for some sister time with Leslie! Throw in the opportunity to do some sightseeing on Nantucket, a cozy summer destination full of history and fascinating architecture, and it was definitely a winning weekend!

We did plenty of sightseeing, checking out the local whaling museum, walking cobblestone streets, taking pictures of the architecture, and spending relaxing time on the beach. It was a little chilly for beach weather, but that didn’t stop us. The first day we bundled up in blankets while watching the sunset, and the last day we got adventurous and took off our socks and shoes.

We also discovered a wonderful corner ice cream shop, which specialized in homemade ice cream and homemade waffle cones. You could smell the cones a block away, and we couldn’t resist stopping there! In fact, all the places we ate were yummy. So I guess you could say it was a weekend full of food, fun, and friends and family.

Loved it!
