A few more photos (some stolen from Tegan and Melissa) to give you another inside peek at my trip to Nantucket. The three of us had so much fun shopping around and dressy up all fancy dancy. Melissa’s awesome job at the Jack Wills in Newport hooked us up with the super down-to-earth and friendly Nantucket staff, one of whom was nice enough to craft this, er, artistic treasure map of the island for our last day there. He sent us on a journey to all kinds of cool secret places around Nantucket, including the Lily Pond, a hidden nature reserve, the delicious Tacos Tacos, a “happy place”, and of course (one of my personal favorites) the secret candy store, which is hidden in the back of another store (I won’t say which one!) and is run by adorable little kids. Lindt truffles and sour peaches anyone? It’s funny how even though he’s from Great Britain (all of the Jack Wills seasonaires are, don’t even get me started on the accents, that would be awhooolenother post), he has this Massachusetts island completely dialed in. Lucky for us!
As if roaming around the island on our own private treasure hunt wasn’t awesome enough, we even got prizes at the end. That’s right, our very own Jack Wills party pants- Nantucket edition! Tegan and I had some fun with our Newport party pants on the ferry ride over, and decided to bookend the trip by doing the same with our new Nantucket digs…I know, we’re super goofy. People were staring. Oops. We’re not sorry.
All in all, it was a fantastic trip, shared with the most fabulous of friends. :)
