Bucket List: Nantucket


When I was a kid, I used to collect Absolut Vodka ads from magazines.  I had no concept of what they were selling, I just thought the campaign was so cool.  It was like a “Where’s Waldo” experience to see how they incorporated the bottle shape in so many clever ways.  (I had no idea at the time that this collection would foreshadow my adulthood – a career in marketing/advertising and an affinity for vodka).  I’m not entirely sure why, but this particular Absolut ad captivated me.  Ever since I came across it, I was obsessed with the idea of visiting Nantucket.

Some umpteen years later, I finally made this dream a reality.

I've arrived!

I’ve arrived!

Not only was the weather a perfect 60 degrees and sunny, but I stepped off the ferry and discovered that Nantucket was every bit as magical as I had imagined.  We made a beeline for the bike shop and rented bikes for the day to explore.

We saw lighthouses.

Too cold for swimsuits

and naturally, we had to check out the famous Cisco brewery/distillery/vineyard.

It was the perfect day.  Now that I’ve visited, the cottages are calling my name.  New bucket list item:  vacation rental for a summer Cape Cod getaway.


Come back!  Stay longer!

You’ve won me over, Nantucket.  Your charm is irresistible.

Until we meet again,
