The Missed Lunar Eclipse

Mom is bummed!
Since we've been on Nantucket, I've been waking her up every single morning at exactly 4:40AM and she keeps wondering if finally, at my age of nine years old, I know how to tell time!
She was psyched last night when she heard that on the east coast, if you're up at 4:50AM, you can watch the lunar eclipse! But I disappointed her. I didn't wake her up until 5:30 so we missed it! Sorry mom! I'm on vacation and I wanted to sleep in! Please forgive me!

We had a good time in town yesterday. We were there for a good hour checking out all the sights. Take a look at this antique car! Mom says that if she could somehow squeeze this into her suitcase, she'd love to take this baby home! Wouldn't we be nice and cool riding through town on this!
For dad, it was a toss up between mom's antique car and this boat. OMG could Mitch and I ever do laps on this thing!
Mitch is constantly practicing his stair-climbing all day long! So many of the shops have a short flight of stairs and he's forever climbing them and trying to check out the goods! He scored in this one! They actually didn't toss him out on his ear!
Mom and dad had dinner last night at The Brotherhood of Thieves! It's a very popular spot on the Island! I wish we could have gone too but no dogs allowed :-(

The plan tonight is to hit Brant Point where the lighthouse is and after that more ice cream! Mom and dad found another ice cream shop this morning that makes gingersnap molasses ice cream and they sampled it and gave it the thumbs up so we're drooling already just thinking about it!

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

Love ya lots,

The vacationing Maggie

Hi Maggie! Hi!

OMG! This has to be the super duper bestest vacation in history! Your pics are fabulous! Any chance that you will get to take a sail? If not, maybe a goodest alternative would be to jump in that antique car for a spin -- let ME know what you decide, K?

Your Friend,

Putter ...:)

Maggsie Girl!

I miss you guys too, but at least you're keeping us posted on your vacation adventures! It really seems like Nantucket is very dog-friendly. (BTW, did your mama give your dad a clipping too before the trip? I noticed he's nice a trimmed up.)

Enjoy that ice cream, Maggs! My girl was all set for the eclipse too, then forgot it was last night, not tonight. (sheesh ~ hoomans)

Goober love & hugs,

Oh, so sorry to hear that you guys missed the Lunar Eclipse. But guess what? Last Sunday, we saw two moons in the sky. We were supposed to see the moons at 12 midnight sharp but we were 20 min late & the moons were kind of joined back already but still, we could see the shapes of the two moons. The other moon is apparently the mars reflected by the moon or something like that, can't really remember. We thought is was a hokes but is wasn't, it was true! I don't know if you guys saw it but maybe only i our country can see. The next time the two moons will appear again will be in the next 200 years.

Anyway, it looks like you guys are having a wonderful vacation!

Love licks,

Oh Mitch, you've cracked the staircase thing for sure now! You have the Power of the Stair, which means extra opportunities for mischief. Yay!
