Nantucket Day 2

We woke up Monday morning a bit groggy but ready to explore the island. We gathered the family together and walked into town to get something to eat at Black Eyed Susan’s. After they had been recommended by two friends, we knew we had to add it to our breakfast list.

From there we wandered about town, stopping into little shops and picking up the lay of the land. We were able to walk back and forth from our little house on Orange to downtown pretty quickly, which made getting into town every day a breeze.

From there, we hopped into our car, and trekked all of 15 minutes to ‘Sconset. We parked and walked a short bit around the tiny town.

Every house was prettier than the next, with all the gorgeous hydrangeas and roses around every corner. It took a bit of driving around, but we ended up down on Baxter Road, which is where the house that I had stayed at so long ago was. It was just a few houses down from Sankaty Head Lighthouse. We parked and walked down to the lighthouse. It was a beautiful day, endless blue skies and warm ocean air.

From there we drove out by the Wauwinet, where we got a lovely view of the water. We decided that we would be definitely be coming back to get mimosas, as a friend had recommended that they had a lovely sunset view.

We freshened up at the house before walking over to an early dinner at Oran Mor. I had the best pasta I’ve had in a long time and a knockout lemondrop. You can always tell a good quality bar when they squeeze a real lemon for your lemondrop cocktail. My pasta was black truffle buccatini with pecorino romano and parmesan!

We walked back to our little house and called it a day. Have you ever been to Black Eyed Susan’s or to Sconset? Do you like the nantucket shingle style of the houses or do you prefer a more modern look?
