Summer in 'Sconset

Perhaps you could tell from the sailboats, shells, and driftwood of a previous post that this long cold snowy winter has had me thinking ahead to summer and looking longingly back through photos of last summer on Nantucket.

I can’t imagine a better spot to spend a lazy summer day than this time forgotten island off the coast of cape cod, and there’s no prettier corner of the island than the quaint village of Siasconset on the islands eastern shore.

Known locally as ‘Sconset, this charming collection of weathered shingle cottages, many encrusted with trellises of climbing roses, seems frozen in time amid blooming masses of powder blue hydrangea. Several of these simple seaside cottages feature beautiful wooden signs carved and gilded with names ranging from the whimsical to the mysterious to the romantic.

Yet for all its charm it’s one of those old weathered Adirondack chairs in the sun and salty air that I long for the most!
