Wishing We Were On Nantucket

If we were going to Nantucket this year, right this very minute we would be in our car and heading to Hyannis to catch the ferry to Nantucket!  How we wish we were going!

We will so miss the  2 hour and 20 minute ferry ride from Cape Cod to Nantucket!

How we will miss arriving at cousin Dick and Jane's house and exploring every room!

And how we will miss our walkies down to Surfside beach every single morning!
This picture is from 2007!  It's Mitch's first trip out to Nantucket with us!

Our header picture is the two of us sitting next to the picnic table at Something Natural and waiting for dad to come back carrying a nice big sandwich that we will all share!
How we will miss strolling through town a couple of times a day and meeting so many new doggie friends!
And how we will miss the ICE CREAM and all of the different choices of flavors every single night for a whole week!
And we will miss that gorgeous sunrise heading back home from Nantucket to Connecticut after spending the most wonderful week on Nantucket!
We are so going to miss going to our favorite spot in the whole wide world!
But our calendar is marked already~ 
We'll be seeing you next year, Nantucket and we can't wait!

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

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Are not sad. I never was in Nantucket.
But it is nice there as I see in the pictures. Above all sandwich.
The next year is not at all so long... I believe. Nevertheless, the next year is soon.

Cassie said...

Nantucket is so cool. Patrick & I will be deserting our pooches next week and head to MA. He has a school to attend after Labor Day so I'll go with him to enjoy the food! Will be staying in Foxoboro I think.

Darlings, I really know how it feels to miss a place, the air, the goodies.. Nantucket must be so special to you guys. I'm glad at least the 2011 calendar is marked, hope mommy catches her favorite blue hydrangea by then. =D

Is it still warm at your place? Japan is crazy hot!

TwoSpecialWires said...

Gosh. It's hard to believe that it's been a whole year. We bet this next year goes just as fast ... and you'll be making more memories.

What a great place to daydream about.
