We had planned for months to travel to Nantucket to celebrate and meet for the first time my son, Bowen’s girlfriend, Laura Douglass’s family. They met on Nantucket, so of course this meeting should take place on the island.
Everyone had to learn to go with the flow! George and I tried to travel to the island several days in advance to prepare but the ferry line had other ideas.
After many changed ferry reservations due to the sudden weather, we met Laura Douglass and her family at the Steamship ferry ticket office.
But the island was calling our name so we were trying!
We decided to head to our first meal together at Panera while waiting to see if the next boat would be going. As luck would have it they canceled all the boats for the day. Sad but also feeling safe and not seasick we accepted our fate and decided to head back to our home off-island to regroup and try again the next day. Thank goodness its fall and Concord, MA is alive and well. The day was salvaged with a tour of the Louis May Alcott House and a visit to The Cheese Shop for a wine and cheese tasting!
We enjoyed an evening getting to know each other and also munching on yummy macaroons made by Laura Douglass and her family while visiting Vermont and the King Authur Flour store and taking a cooking class where these were made. Highly recommended! They were YUMMY!
I still had not made it to Something Natural our FAVORITE sandwich shop and the thing I always LOOKed forward to each season with my three. Thankfully everyone wanted to go for lunch. In my happy place with people I love who could as for more in life!
We had a wonderful afternoon traveling around the island to the Cisco Brewery, Cisco Beach and town before everyone else boarded the ferry to head back to their daily lives.
