Each month I like to participate in Sandie's 5 in 5 photography meme. I was quite sure I'd be able to come up with five photos in five minutes somewhere on Nantucket, and it proved easy to do. I finally chose these five from the village, Siasconset, commonly referred to as S'conset. On earlier trips to Nantucket, Matt had sent me photos taken with his phone, with the comment, "You'd love it here, Mom." And indeed, I did. The village is very small---a lovely market, a delicious sandwich shop, and a small cafe and wine shop. The rest of the village consists of quaint cottages, all shingled, all with beautiful flowers. Some of the cottages were built in the early 1700's and are still in excellent condition. Later in the day, after these photos were taken, several of us walked the Bluff Path, and I'll share some photos from there later. Along the bluff, overlooking the ocean, are much larger and more elaborate homes, equally beautiful.
In the last photo, I love that you can look through the window and see the ocean beyond. It seems like a pretty idyllic place to spend a summer!
