Packing for Nantucket

Mom has been busy getting stuff together so she can load the car on Thursday.
Friday morning we'll leave in the wee hours of the morning. Our ferry leaves at 7:30AM and Hyannis (where the ferry departs) is a 3 hour drive from our house. It takes the ferry 2 hours and 20 minutes to go from Hyannis to Nantucket! Check this out! Mitch is going to ace those stairs - we're feeling very confident! Wait till he gets on the upper deck and meets new people and new doggy friends. He's going to have so much fun!

Mitch spent the morning outside with dad while mom and I got things going. I'm making sure that mom has packed our favorite stuff!
Next was the beach umbrella. She wanted to make sure that it was in tip top working order.
I was on Cisco beach with the family just one time - my first trip out - when I was one year old! Nantucket now has these stupid rules where they don't want dogs on the beach anymore unless it's after hours!
How rude is that!
We're trying on my hydrangea bandana in this picture. Nantucket is famous for their beautiful blue hydrangeas! We'll be bringing lots of bandanas! I have lots of pretty choices!
The books are getting packed!
Reading material for the beach! hummmmmmmm I'm not sure these are the best choices though!
I hope mom remembers to pack lots of treats!The suitcases haven't come out just yet. Clothing is usually the last thing mom packs! Our guestroom upstairs is looking pretty messy. Mom is piling stuff everywhere! Stuff is staying upstairs so that Mitch doesn't help himself to everything!

Hey, can I wear your hat mom? Don't forget the sunglasses and the sunscreen!

The packing continues.........................

We just want to let you all know that we're going to miss all of you HEAPS!

The camera will be coming along and we'll get lots of pictures! It's still up in the aire about the laptop coming along or not, so if we post, it can be a surprise! And if not, we'll be back in September!

So until next time...............

Love ya lots and lots,

Maggie

Hey Maggie, You look really pretty with your bandana and the hat too. That's a super bummer about dogs not being allowed on the beach. What's wrong with those people? I hope you and Mitch will still have fun though. It sounds like Mitch will have a good time on the ferry now that he can climb the stairs to the top! Have fun!
