Fall on Nantucket

Columbus Day weekend is one of my favorite times of the year to be on Nantucket island.  This past weekend it happened to be spectacular weather – with unusual temperatures in the 80s.  It hardly felt like Fall, but with less crowds in the off-season, it was just perfect.

Three wharf cottages on a morning when the sky matched the painted doors.

An empty courtyard by the Gazebo, and the last of the hydrangea blooms for the season.

My kids patiently waiting outside, while I took a peek into Store No. 2, owned by Elizabeth Bauer of Elizabeth Bauer Design.


A steal of a deal?  Turns out the light fixture was marked at $100.  The reclaimed barrel chair was 9x as much.

 Straight Wharf Restaurant‘s “Our Last Week” menu – stating, “our last night of the season will be Monday, October 10th.”

…even in 80 degrees, we loved the chilly Fall nights.
