¨Just a sandy wind-swept island!
What more would you have it be,
With a turquoise sky above it,
Around it the sapphire sea?¨
¨When its dawns are pearl and opal,
Its noons are crystals clear,
And its sunsets shower down gold dust
Till the diamond stars appear,-¨
¨When to those who are born on the island,
And to many from over the sea,
‘Tis fairer than all its jewels,
What more does it need to be?¨
(Nantucket-Mary Eliza Starbuck)
Shingle cottages with crisp white trim, window boxes, colorful front doors and picket fences… Rose gardens, crepe myrtles and hydrangeas, and breathtaking views… this is Nantucket, one of my favorite destinations in the States!
