Nantucket Topper – Peter Beaton Hats

Screen Shot 2017-08-01 at 11.39.39 PMIt’s August now, which means “time to head to Nantucket” for many of my friends in the Northeast! A favorite summer getaway…there is much to love about this tiny island. Nantucket reds, the lighthouse, biking to Sconset, sandwiches from Something Natural, sunset cocktails at The Galley….and these stunning straw hats by Peter Beaton.

I love that you can choose your style and ribbon. Those ribbons!!!

Luckily, you don’t have to take the ferry to Nantucket to have one.Screen Shot 2017-08-01 at 11.41.42 PM

Table No. 1 – Nantucket

There’s a new spot in Nantucket, right on the wharf. 

Table No. 1, opened by Sarah Powers, is a more than a wine and cheese shop – though it offers plenty of both – it is a gathering spot. They’ll set you up for a tasting or load you up for a party. And, from the looks of their cheese trays, I might just make it dinner.

The name is a reference to an evening where the Powers clan had a less than desirable table number (#83) at a wedding. Grumbling about their location, their father reminded them, that wherever they were gathered together was actually Table No. 1. Cheers to that!

So wherever you find yourself this weekend, remember that it is your Table No. 1 and celebrate accordingly!

Nantucket Neighborhoods

I still haven’t caught my breath from my two weeks of travel, but am happy that both my boys have made it home from theirs. This was the first time that both our sons were gone at the same time, so it enabled me to make the solo trip to Seattle and then to enjoy some time in Nantucket with my husband.

With no agenda, we meandered the streets on bike, jeep and foot and finally understood the charm that everyone uses to describe this little island. Hydrangeas, window boxes, houses with names and boats abounded….and made me want to return as a family.

If you’ve been, then you know what a special place it is. If you haven’t, it’s really worth all the hype. Here is a just a little of what caught my eye.

Nantucket….we hope to see you again next summer!
