August in VT

We spent a hardworking weekend at the house, or at least we did after Peter arrived. I was actually up there for several days earlier, spending time with my sister and Chris Millard, and exploring some of the walking trails near the house. Now that it's finally coming together, there's time to begin enjoying the house.

Nantucket Anniversary Party

One of the special things about visiting in August is the chance to celebrate Grandma and Grandpa's anniversary. This year we celebrated a bit early and in quite grand style. Once our numbers reached ten people for dinner, we were offered seating at the chef's table at 56 Union. It's a beautiful spot, separated from the other outside dining in its own garden tent. The food and service were exceptional, and it was particularly fun to have Evan as one of the servers. Everything was perfect, from the beautiful centerpiece, to the special scallop entrée that most of us ordered, to the super soft blankets provided on the back of every chair for when the evening cooled down. You'll see Grandpa especially enjoying that at the end of these photos.

Nantucket Review

Because we hadn't visited Nantucket since last August, there was a lot of checking up to do - on how the house looked, how the gardens were doing and whether the Downyflake still had the best donuts ever. Plus we went to hear the Pops play at Jetties Beach, saw some kayaking ducks and threw our pennies overboard when we passed Brant Point on the way back to Hyannis. Photos here.

Another Nantucket Weekend

Once you get back to Nantucket you just want to keep on returning, so that's what we did again last weekend. Somehow, it was even more relaxing this time. There was country walking, town walking, beach plumming and lots of communal cooking, making for pretty much a perfect weekend. Check out the photoset.
