Nantucket Daffodil Festival
You know how Holly Golightly had Tiffany’s? Well I have two places: Nantucket and Barnes and Noble.
B&N will do in a pinch when the long drive and ferry ride to ‘Tucket can’t happen, but I prefer Nantucket, hands down. With its marvelous old cars, cobblestone lined streets, quaint shops, kind people and a view of the sea at every turn,who wouldn’t?
I never realized it before, but Nantucket is a little bit like Amsterdam. There is a daffodil festival every April (as opposed to Amsterdam’s Tulip Festival) and Nantucket even has a windmill of its very own!
When I was little, my Dad bought me a book called “Comet’s Nine Lives” by Jan Brett. It is a sweet and beautifully illustrated tale about a Nantucket cat named Comet who over the course of summertime on the island bids adieu to eight of his nine lives.
Little did I know that years later I would get to see the places in the book in person!
Next time I go on island dear readers (which has been far too long), I will be sure to bring my camera, because the beauty and charm of Nantucket is something to love!!
