Just when I unpacked from my road trip, I packed up more stuff to head up North to Boston/Nantucket/Providence for 12 days. I have been looking forward to this trip for months. We (Newport roommates) rented a house on Nantucket for this whole week and I am so excited to be here with nothing to do but have fun. Of course, I am working a tiny bit on the side so things don’t get too backed up at my real job. My old pal Dede picked me up at the airport and we went to lunch..next stop to Tara’s in the North End. We ventured out for dinner and waited in line at Giacomo’s.
This guy was walking up and down the sidewalk with a tape player serenading everyone with songs…
Tara and I in line…
After dinner, we hit up Mike’s Pastry. What a zoo. The cannolis were delicious-definitely worth the line.
Saturday, we ran errands and were all over the place but made it to Flat of the Hill right before they closed at 5pm. I walked in and couldn’t believe my old crystal necklaces were hanging by the register. They were tucked away and they found them so they put them out. They looked so cute and sparkly, I think I should start making these again.
Lucky for me, the owner Katherine was there. She is my most favorite store owner and I got to catch up with her and check out her amazing store..still my favorite ever.
Sunday morning, we packed up all the stuff and headed to the Cape. We overpacked as usual and I was so worried it wouldn’t all fit in our friends’ Jeep. Tara, ever patient, was not worried.
We didn’t quite make the ferry we were scheduled on, but we got on the next one with our bags and our Jeep came over a little later. We headed to Baxter’s to wait around and started the trip with Mimosas.
Tara was in serious travel mode making sure we hadn’t forgotten anything before boarding (notice her awesome See Designs tote with an enormous monogram)…
We made it to the island by 3pm. The weather is amazing!
This is my room for the week, a window a/c unit and a ceiling fan. Those two things will make me happy.
We went to Brandt Point Grill for dinner and ended up at Cru for cocktails after. Such a fun start to our week.
Monday, after a quick brunch, we hit the streets for some shopping. One of my favorite stores on the island is Monelle. They have a location in Newport as well. I have never seen a store with so much good stuff….
Lots of good shoes, jewelry, dresses, jeans, tops, tunics, hats, wraps and so much more. Everything is so cute, I could spend all my money here!
After shopping, I went back to the house to do some work. I got lost along the way and kept stopping to take pictures of all the cute houses I saw…
It’s so beautiful here.
Best vacation spot.
