Promises, promises

Tile, tile, tile! We have tile, tile, tile! Sorry, no photos yet. Monday is our crazy day. It was too dim to take pictures by the time I got home. I'll take some tomorrow. Promise. Maybe by then, there will be even more progress!

(Knock on wood. Fingers crossed. No poultry or egg countin' going on here!)

Meanwhile, here is part two of the Nantucket photos I'd promised earlier. If you're in the area, maybe the sunny photos will warm you up. Such a chilly, rainy night. Where did summer go? Not that long ago, we were lounging in tank tops and flip flops. Now the strappy tops and strappy shoes have been packed away, and we're in jeans and jackets. New England weather.

From the top of Great Point lighthouse in the Coskata-Coatue Wildlife Refuge, you can see how undeveloped Nantucket remains. I grew up vacationing on Florida beaches where I was sandwiched between water and miles of condos. In Nantucket, I was stunned by how unspoiled the beaches remained. One could walk forever along the shore and see no one but gulls, curious seals, and sanderlings. Seeing nothing but ocean to one side, sandy bluffs on the other.

Sunset at Madaket Beach. It's amazing how swiftly the sun sets. One second, it glimmers, perched on the horizon. An eyeblink later, it's gone. A new restaurant steps away from Madaket Beach opened this summer. Formerly the Westender, Millie's offers indoor and outdoor seating, live music, and absolutely phenomenal soft tacos. Sitting at a picnic table with a really good margarita, ocean breezes ruffling your hair. That is the life.

Sunset at Madaket again. I love the bird. I don't know why.

She sells seashells by the seashore.

Pure and simple. Joy.
