ride over to Nantucket was just terrific.
The warm sun, warm breeze, you just wanted
it to go on forever. There is something very special
about being out on the ocean on a beautiful afternoon.
lunch at a place called Vincent's. They had the
best iced tea. It was good to be out of the sun for awhile.

in an air conditioned bus. It was hot! But it sure felt great.
boats were out on the water, the harbor was
nearly empty on this 4th of July week. Some great
fireworks were blasted off in Hyannis Harbor.

is always a fun trip. We rode the bikes a
few miles to get there, hoping the rain would hold off.
trails are great, the go for miles, scenery can't

Point has a neat little light house to keep the boats
off the shore. There is a small cabin attached to it.
interesting brass sculpture recognizes one of the early
Nantucket newspaper pioneers. He looks like a Yankees fan!
