At the Beach on Nantucket

So we spent all the sunny days on the beach, mostly in the first week we were there when Mike and Leesee were with us. Ollie got his skimming prowess from last summer back and Minna gave it a great try. She was more into the boogie board though, and towards the end of our stay, seriously got into diving in the waves at Washing Pond. During the week, swimming was led by Minna who never seemed to get cold, beachcombing involved everyone and there was lots of playtime where Leesee was the favorite playmate. The big hit was her wax animals, made from the leftover coating around the round cheeses we brought to the beach for lunch. What a treat to have everyone together at Washing Pond, not the Dionis of old, but very similar and less crowded. We also spent a cold and breezy day at Miacomet, where the pond looks very different but was still great for skim boarding and a Minna swim. See it here.

Sconset and Sankaty and Lunch

Not suspecting that the next week would be too cloudy for beach days, we sacrificed a glorious day to drive to Sconset at the other end of the island. We walked up and down the narrow streets, passing one after another, quaint, perfectly picturesque cottages. At lunch, the kids (and Meg) were unaware Peter was taking closeups of them, with his camera just sitting on the table. Afterwards, we drove around by Sankaty Light, in its new inland location but again starting to look perilously close to the sea. The kids got in plenty of running before we drove home. Here are some pictures.
