This is How We Roll…

Actually, no one really rolls into Nantucket, more like floats or flies.  But as I just returned to Seattle (on a big jet, I  must guiltily admit, it’s much better on a big ferry or little prop plane for anticipation sake) after a delightful, though quick trip there, thought I could squeeze in a light post with a teaser of how we roll while in Nantucket, until I have a chance to organize my thoughts into more.

This fun old firetruck is parked outside the new Nantucket Hotel, formerly Point Breeze Hotel where we were married 11 years ago.  More about that in a another post, I promise.  They did such a nice job renovating it while honoring the history of this island landmark.


Cisco Brewery’s Triple 8 mobile can’t be missed.  Though I do miss Triple 8, I wonder how long it will be before we can access it here in the Northwest?


It’s also fun to zig and zag down the road on a Missoni beach

The Nantucket Hotel’s old fashioned trolley, I can’t believe how stinkin’ classically cool and fun they made this place, (again, more on that later) of course I am a bit biased…download-24

But, bigger isn’t always better.  Cecilia is the C Wonder mobile.  Spotted cruisin’ all around Island and this day spotted at Dionis Beach.

20130727_145047Finally, this Jeep sporting all kinds of Buckeye pride had to be captured.  Go Bucks!

I have so much more to share about the trip, but jet lag and Seattle life have taken a hold of me, so this lite post will have to do for now. Stay tuned.
