When I was a kid, we spent one week each summer in a small house just outside of town with three other families. It was a bit of a circus: sleeping on the floor, singing songs, wiffle ball in the yard, playing in the surf, eating fresh bluefish, chowder at The Tavern, and breakfasts at the Downyflake. For many, Nantucket represents tradition.
Just a sandy wind-swept island!
What more would you have it be,
With a turquoise sky above it,
Around it a sapphire sea?
When its dawns are pearl and opal,
Its noons are crystals clear,
And its sunsets shower down gold dust
Till the diamond stars appear,
When to those who are born on the island,
And to many from over the sea,
'Tis fairer than all its jewels,
What more does it need to be?
For others, Nantucket is a new adventure. Whether you are new or old to the island, there may be agreement that it is someplace very unique and special.
