Closed for the Season ?

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.

Cheers !

Scallop Boats Taking a Rest

 Nantucket Bay Scallops are a little smaller then sea scallops and rich in flavor.  Sweet, velvety and delectable. A little salt, pepper then just seared in a saute pan for a few minutes.  Just so good !

Cheers !

 These seals are just too cute, aren't they?
 On the drive out to Great Point Lighthouse seals are seen resting along the way. About a 4.5 mile ride along the beach.
 With great respect, a photo is captured.

 These latecomers are a little nosey.
Great Point Light house situated on the north east point of Nantucket Island.

Christmas Trees

 Downtown Nantucket is decorated in all it's glory.  The Coast Guard decorated this tree to win 2nd place.  Notice the blue branches and ship!
 A spectacular tree with all the trimmings.
 Even the fishermen got creative. 
I just love the scallops as ornaments. 
Cheers !
