nantucket; brant light house; a beautiful mess bicycle

I was absolutely determined to take a day trip to Nantucket while we were on Martha’s Vineyard, despite the rivalry between the two islands. So on one of those tiny 6-seater airplanes we flew, for a little jaunt over to ACK! I think I can now safely say we are definitely more Vineyard people than Nantucket, but the bike riding, endless hydrangeas, Cisco Brewery picnic, and Brant Point Lighthouse trip were definitely highlights of our entire week.

Brant Point Light was first constructed in 1746, and is still in operation! Probably the most famous of the three lighthouses on the island, it really was one of the most picturesque of our whole tour, and I would have been more than content to sit on its beach all day.nantucket hydrangeas photography
