Natucket - The Final Days

This one particular day dad found a parking spot at the A&P grocery store! It's hard to find available spots there because you can park for 2 hours without fear of getting your tires marked and receiving a ticket! As we were crossing the parking lot to head to The Hub to get dad his daily newspaper, Mitch spotted an apple that someone had dropped! Mom told him that this was his lucky day and she was certain that someone had dropped it there just for him! Sure, mom!! *major eyeroll*Mitch was carrying the apple around and had huge drools dangling from his mouth and he looked very scuzzy! Who would want to pet him looking like that! While dad was in buying his paper Mitch decided to eat his apple, thank doGness!

We headed for the docks to have a look at all the fancy boats! Mom wanted a picture of these pretty flowers and look who had to be in the picture taking a pee! ewwwwwwwwwwwwwww

Dad and Mitch are discussing which boat Mitch would like to buy for dad for his birthday! There were sure a lot of choices! There was actually no bad choice! hehehehe

We passed by more pretty flowers while we walked around town!

I wanted to go inside lots of shops but mom wouldn't let me!

This one has some really neat stuff, mom!

This is the Scrimshaw shop and this guy really wants us to come inside! Please say yes, mom!

That night dad took us to Star's for ice cream!

This was our view while dad was inside getting us ice cream!
We almost died when we saw the size of the dish of ice cream dad came out with! It's a swirly dish with half vanilla and half chocolate! The ice cream was towering 6" over the top of the cup! Dad was very generous sharing ice cream with us that night!
Thanks, dad! This is mighty good stuff!
Mom even shared the end of her cone with me!
We had a blast! Nantucket was SO MUCH FUN but it came to an end on Saturday morning at 6AM. These next couple of shots we're on the ferry and it's pulling out and heading for Hyannis!

Once we got off the ferry and into our car to make the 3 hour drive home, Mitch and I fell sound asleep and slept pretty much the entire way home!

It's nice to be home and to sleep in our own beds and walk in our own neighborhood but we do miss the relaxing atmosphere and being with mom and dad all the time and having the most fun adventures ever! Thanks for coming along with us and letting us show you our special spot in the world.

Autumn wanted us to tell you that she is still hard at work knitting her sweater and by next Wednesday she'll be able to show you what she's been working on! We see her staring into outer space a lot - probably dreaming about Hector!

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

Love ya lots,

Maggie and Mitch

Hi, Maggie & Mitch -

The ice cream your Dad bought was huge. Mama does not give Kaci and I chocolate ice cream - but we get Frosty Paws.

We are glad you had such a good time on vacation. Mama has an aunt that used to live in Hyannis now she lives in West Barnstable.

Love -

Hershey and Kaci

Georgeous said...

Hey Maggie & Mitch, what a great look at your holiday. Looks like you nearly had a holiday romance Maggie, whilst Mitch chomped on his apple.
Did Mitch decide what boat to buy for your Dad?
Love n Snufs

Gus said...

OH WOW Mitchy, Maggie has done such a good job of training your humans, you should let her have ALL the ice cream next time. Apples are better for ya anyway.

Ok I'm adding Nantucket to my to-do list for the next time I escape to the other side of the gates!

I loved looking at all you pictures - it kinda felt like I was there with you :-)



Stanislaw said...

Nice hunting, Mitch! Those apples are rascally creatures and you should be proud that you caught one!

Huskee and Hershey said...

What a great vacation Maggie! Didn't Mitch share the apple that he found with you?
The flowers are soooo beautiful too.. Thanks for sharing your vacation with us!

Girasol said...

The end of the cone is the best part! yummy.
Those are some great pictures you have there. I'm glad that you had a great vacation.

Hi, Maggie and Mitch!
Sure Mitch was lucky finding that apple! I know how much he loves them!
That is the biggest ice cream I've ever seen!
Thanks for sharing your pictures with us!

Joe Stains said...

Chef said...

Ive never been to Nantucket, but now I feel like I have. Thank you for sharing all the wonderful photographs and stories of your vacation, I can visit Nantcket in my dreams at least now.

Wowzers.. i've never seen an ice-cream so huge, your Dad is very nice for sharing.

Its always great to hear of your adventures, but it's even better having you home.

love and slurpy kisses,

Ben xxxxxxxxxxx

Ferndoggle said...

That is one crazy big dish of ice cream! I'm drooling...


Stanley said...

Next year I'm going with you guys! Tell your mama to put that down on her calendar. One more Dale shouldn't make a huge difference... ya think?

Thank you for the vicarious ice cream experience. That was some ICE CREAM, man!

Goober love & smooches,

Murphey said...

What an awesome time you had in Nantucket. Reilly keeps mentioning how Mitch had his own room and he wants one too! I don't think he's gonna get one, hee hee.

Welcome home,


Fred said...

What booty-full pictures! And ice cream....yum....

Princess Patches said...

Thanks for sharing your vacation with all of us! There are a lot of beautiful things to see on Nantucket. We are very jealous of all the ice cream you got. When we saw that first picture of Mitch, our mom showed it to our dad and asked if he knew who it was. He said he thought it was Captain High Pockets. Mitch has those same gorgeous eyes! BTW, we hear that CHP is still doing great in his new home, but his name is Mick, now.

Hi Maggie! Hi Mitch!
I gave you an award. Please stop by the Ao4 Digest when you can!

Homer said...

Hi Maggie and Mitch,

You got an apple and ice-cream and did I read something about getting a boat??? Wow! What an outing!


Mack said...

I think Nantucket should be called Icecreamville!

How lucky Mitch was to find a used apple to snack on!

Bogart H. Devil said...



Gus, Louie and Callie said...

Awesome pictures.. That ice cream really looks good. Did you find something for Dad for his Birthday?

Big Sloppy Kisses

Petra said...

Oh, that ice cream makes me drool! And Nantucket makes my mom drool! Thanks for sharing these pictures from your vacation. We'd love to go visit there sometime.

Dexter said...

M&M - You picked the perfect week to go to Nantucket. You two are so clever. Apples and ice cream? You are living large.


Scottie the 'Cutie' said...

Wow! That was such a cool vacation that you had in Nantucket! Love the gorgeous photos! And the ice-cream! The size of it just blows me away...*grins* Can't wait to see Autumn's masterpiece!

Welcome home Maggie & Mitch! What a wonderful trip you had. All that ice cream, the beauty of Nantucket and the all those other animals. I just loved the cat that thinks he is a dog!

That is a very special place - so much ice cream and my Mum really liked the pretty flowers and the boats (I'm with Mitch on flowers :) ). I think it's nice to be home too! ... especially when it rains like on our holiday :( .
See you soon.

Good evening m & m.
Thank you for teaching time when Nantucket is wonderful. It is an interesting place by forgetting time's passing.
Of course, scenery in the sea is beauty that always changes.
The weekend peacefully with the happiness of the travel. :)

Mango the Maltese kiddo said...

Finder, eater!
Whoa! Mitch, you can grind an apple into apple juice, how cool.
I fainted at the size of the ice cream dish. Viva Nantucket!
Thanks for showing and telling your wonderful vacation, Maggie&Mitch

Isis said...

When i carry stuff around i get huge drools too... its not very lady like says sister.

I can't believe you got ice cream again! THATS it! I'm comin to live with you guys.

Stanislaw said...

To answer your question...

To break one of those rascally clipper blades, you kick back like a pony when your human is working on your hind legs. If you do it just right, the buzzies will go flying and come smashing down on mom's nice new blade and break it. Success!


Woof Maggie and Mitch

You pups sure have a lot of fun and get to visit really neat places. Mom doesn't take all of us out anymore, not after the neighbor's ferret incident (which shouldn't have been outside anyway). Glad you pups are having fun.

I just found your blog, and it's great! I have a wonderful airedale named Janie. I had another named Sadie, but she is no longer with me. They are the absolute best dogs!!
Glad to see some of those beautiful airedale faces!!!
