We wanted to share a few of our favorite photographs in this photo gallery. They bring back such wonderful memories!
No longer the victim of Nantucket whalers, the mighty and magestic whale has taken a honored place in the hearts of residents and vistors alike. Images of whales can be seen everywhere you look, from weather vanes to door knockers to town signs. I even found a moss-covered image on a sidewalk.
Nantucket Boat Basin is the perfect place for strolling and taking pictures. Grey-shingled cottages and bright colored boats casting shimmering reflections make for stunning photographs.
There are so many enchanting things about Nantucket, even the water meter lids have a charm all their own. We found an original Nantucket Lightship life preserver ring hanging in Cy’s Lobster Pot, along with a lot of other amazing memorabilia.
One of Nantucket's most photographed sites, Brant Point Beach is home to the historic Brant Point Lighthouse. It's not the best beach for swimming, but it is a great place to sit and watch the boats go by. This beautiful beach is one of the island's most popular wedding venues.
The famous Nantucket skyline is marked by church steeples, widow’s walks and weather vanes. The two most recognizable buildings are the First Congregational Church and the Second Congregational Meeting House (South Church), now known as the Unitarian Universalist Church. The steeple of the of the First Congregational Church offers a breathtaking birds-eye view of the island.
There is something magical about Nantucket nights. Sunsets are breathtaking. The boat basin lights up so bright it takes on a golden glow. Evenings are perfect for a leisurely stroll and the street lamps add a romantic glow to the cobblestone streets.
Upscale shops, restaurants, taverns, and historic homes line the cobblestones of Main Street, the heart of historic downtown Nantucket.
Bright colored sail boats, luxury yachts, fishing boats, and charming little row boats fill the harbor and create endless photo opportunities.
Shimmering reflections make for some of our favorite photographs like this one of the buoys floating in the harbor. On our last trip we photographed this sneaky seagull feasting on snacks he stole right out of our bag pack!
We went to our first Daffodil Festival in April and had a wonderful time. Daffodils were everywhere
Morning and evening fog are frequent visitors to the Island, earning her the name of the “Grey Lady.”
