Nantucket 2014-1

We’ve arrived for our two-week sojourn, following Bali, and the Jersey Shore. We are eclectic people.

The trip to the ferry which should be 90 minutes (to Hyannis) took 2.5 hours. There were eight-mile backups at the Cape. I still don’t know why. The ferry was 10 minutes late leaving, a rarity, as frantic last-minute arrivals swarmed the ticket office. (It is VERY difficult to get a car on a ferry during the season without a reservation dating back to February.) Every single vehicle around us was an SUV, and while you’re about to tell me that’s the practical way to do it, they all look like ants in a colony headed for food. Boring.

But here we are. As is our 20-year habit, we dined at Topper’s (named after a dog) at the Wauwinet on the opposite side of the island. For those of you who follow me on Vivino, we had a superb Harlan Estate. The food was great and there are few things I know of to equal a 70-degree night, riding through winding, narrow roads under the stars, in a convertible.

This morning is lovely, and I am preparing for the 20-yard trip to the beach.
