Summer on Nantucket / by Sarah

After living in Boston for almost two years, I am convinced that there is no better place to celebrate summer than New England.  With bright blue skies, the smell of the sea and the sun on your face, those dark, cold January days seem like a distant memory.  I recently took a little jaunt over to Nantucket to photograph, take in a concert and soak up a lot of sun, and I am officially in love.  The history along Nantucket's cobble stone streets, mixed with a laid back island feel and gorgeous sandy beaches, makes the foggy island one magical place.  It is right up my alley.

Aside from the sun and surf, you get some world class shopping and dinning.  I spied some beautiful Dunes and Duchess candelabras at the gorgeous shop Trillium.

I walked up and found all this splendor inside

Another lovely shop,  Belongings.

Back in October, Stacy Kunstel and Michael Parternio let sit in on this photo shoot featured in this month's New England Home!  A Nantucket full circle for me from my trip in October.

Of course no trip to Nantucket would be complete with out a visit to Cisco Brewers.  They asked me to photograph their new wine tasting room and distillery room.  Wine and vodka...two of my favorite things.

I have said this before, but their bloody mary mix is the best on the planet!

Goodbye Nantucket.  I promise to be back soon.
