|Seriously, how good does that look? I can guarantee you it tasted even better.|
I did not approve of the license plate frame and variety of stickers on this car. Go Irish! Beat Trojans!
|Remember when USC lost to Stanford and we beat Stanford? It's basically like we've beaten them already!|
We boarded the ferry in Hyannis Harbor...
...and then we were off!
|I'm on a boat! I'm on a boat! Everybody look at me 'cause I'm sailin' on a boat!|
An hour later, we pulled into Nantucket.
Oh, hi, Nantucket! Nice to meet you!
I got fresh-squeezed cranberry juice all over my shoes as a result. Totally worth it.
I tried to steal a handful, but couldn't quite reach. Bummer.
Also in the harbor parking lot was this car, straight out of the '60s. Note the bumper sticker.
We set off on our tour of the island. We drove from downtown all the way over to 'Sconset.
We stopped at a cranberry bog, too. Maybe that's where the berries in the harbor were from? I was sad that it just looked like a regular field. It only looks like an Ocean Spray commercial when they're actually harvesting the berries, and we just missed harvest by a week or two.
In our attempt to eat locally, we discovered that this juice is actually made in Plano. Oops.
With full bellies, we set off shopping on Main Street. Isn't it adorable with the cobblestones?
These signs were rather appropriate for the occasion.Murray's Toggery, home of the original Nantucket Reds. Adam and I both picked up a pair.
Whaling Museum. Inside is the skeleton of a 46-foot-long sperm whale that washed ashore in 1998.
Here's a picture of it on the beach near 'Sconset.
And here's a view of downtown.
Brotherhood of Thieves for a pre-dinner drink. We had to drink locally, so I had this pumpkin ale (duh) from Cisco Brewers located on the island.
Corazon Del Mar. If you are ever on Nantucket, you have to eat here. It was probably my favorite meal of our whole trip. Adam got some oysters to start...
We grabbed dessert at The Black Dog Tavern, and with full bellies, boarded the last ferry back to the mainland. Nantucket sure did treat us well. I can't wait to come back someday!
