Nantucket Love

First off, yes I am still having a love affair with my Anthropologie hat! I would link it up or for that matter buy 2 more for myself to have as backup – but they no longer have it, fail.

Anywho…on to my next obsession, Nantucket. My hub surprised me for our one year anniversary with this lovely getaway for Labor Day weekend (I know, he is a keeper). We escaped the city last Thursday morning & drove the ever so quick <1.5hr drive to Hyannis for our ferry to the island. The Hy-Line high speed cruise took only one hour – but with food & cocktails aboard, we already felt like we were on vacation!

When we arrived, my expectations of Nantucket were immediately exceeded. The cutest shops, restaurants & houses adorned with grey cedar shingles were everywhere as soon as we stepped off the ferry. Brick roads led us through the cutest town & finally to our hotel, 76 Main. This hotel completely got us, from the wonderful staff to the BYOB happy hour (around their fire pit), & to top it off they even had a ‘stretch, sauna, sip & cycle’ package – yes, this hotel was made for us!

After dropping off our bags, we freshened up & headed out the door to get a quick drink & appetizer at Boarding House before heading to dinner. CRU was exceptional for dinner. The blue crab & Nantucket lobster cocktails were both out of this world, the fresh oyster selection had me only wanting more & to top off the night their blackberry cabernet sorbet was AMAZING! Lets just say I had this more then one night (yes, I went back for more)!
