Two weeks ago (omg how has it already been two weeks?!), I went to Nantucket with Kiel, Sarah, Sophie, and Dave. We were invited by Nantucket Island Resorts to stay in the White Elephant Easy Street Loft. Especially since it was such a short trip, I loved being right in town!
We had a bumpy, extra-long ride on the ferry so getting to Nantucket felt even sweeter. First order of business was grabbing lunch at the Brant Point Grill. I had my first lobster roll of the season, and it was really the best way get in the mood.
It was very cold during our trip, but sunny! I’ll take cool and sunny over rainy and warm! After settling into the loft and claiming rooms/beds, we made our way to Steps Beach. Despite the cold, it was gorgeous. There’s something special about Nantucket beaches.
Also, can we talk about my dirty, post-braid, post-Ferry, very salty, very tangly hair? Why do good hair days happen when you least expect them?
We were so tired from all the travel. (I had been on the road since 4 am!) So we opted for dinner at the loft, family-style.
Unfortunately, Sarah was sick on our only full day there. (She’s pregnant in case you missed the announcement!!!!) The rest of us went out on the White Elephant’s Hinckley. I was honestly kind of dreading it because it was 9 am, and I thought it would be super windy and cold. I was actually a little warm in my dark jeans and sweater.
The day was perfect, and the Mariner’s Club guys were great. We just bopped around the island and even convinced them to let us stay for a little longer. I always forget how much I enjoy being on boats.
Is it a trip to Nantucket without a stop at the Brant Point Lighthouse? I always feel like it’s very Wes Anderson.
I have a full outfit post coming up from this with even more photos. But I had to include a sneak peek here. After the boat, we went down to ‘Sconset for the afternoon. I love it because it’s a little bit more relaxed. We spotted a bunch of painters doing a workshop, and the instructor was Little V’s mom’s old teacher! Such a small world.
The countdown is on until my return. (July 1!!!! Hope to see some of you all around for the Fourth!)
