Well, winter is fast approaching as the Nantucket Island quiets down. Quite a few restaurants and stores have closed their doors as well as lights being turned off in a large amount of homes. Christmas is just around the corner and we look forward to the celebration of New Years.
I could not put this book down. Story takes place during the American Revolution in Boston, MA. Not only will you be educated but will be drawn into the life struggles of this extraordinary young woman.
Nantucket from the sky! Experience this take off in a 9 passenger plane from Nantucket Airport heading out over the beaches on the southern shore of Nantucket Island. Also, notice Air Force 2 parked nearby picking up Vice President Biden.
Nantucket's Shipwreck & Lifesaving Museum is definitely worth a visit. Over 700 shipwrecks have occured in waters surrounding Nantucket. This museum features over 5,000 objects from shipwrecks and lifesaving equipment. Walk through at your leisure or take advantage of a complimentary small group tour. A fabulous museum situated in a gorgeous setting off of Polpis Road.
As December quickly comes upon us and a cold spell expected, I believe this is the last we'll see of flowers this year.
As I write, our "fast" ferries have cancelled for the day due to heavy winds. The white caps are dancing on the ocean, the winds are howling and the temperature is dropping. Perfect weather for Christmas Stroll next week.
Vice President Biden arrived on Nantucket last evening to enjoy the Thanksgiving Holiday.
The Air Force landed Monday and Tuesday bringing necessary equipment for Vice President Biden's anticipated visit. VP Biden is actually quite accessible. He typically visits the local stores and attends holiday events. Although it is apparent that secret service are all about, he seems to enjoy talking with everyone.
