I ALWAYS know that the summer is basically over after the Fourth of July. And, yet, it never ceases to amaze me just how fast the days start to go. I’m trying to savor every minute of summer. These photos are all from the Fourth of July this year. We fit so much into the one day; it felt like we celebrated the Fourth for at least two (maybe three) days. I’d still take a re-do to relive it all though… going through photos will have to do.
There are a few more photos than usual in the post, so I’ll keep the text to a minimum. We started the day with copious cups of coffee. We lived in our Lake Pajamas that week. So comfortable for porch lounging, sleeping in, and cozy working.
While we waited for our sailboat, the girls and I decided to do a little shopping. I don’t think Julia or I could resist a pretty straw hat if we tried. I added one more to my Peter Beaton collection, and Julia started hers!
I’m pretty sure that the Fourth of July was the hottest day we were on Nantucket, so the sailboat ride was extra perfect. It’s so much cooler on the water (not to mention the breeze)– we were appreciative of the relief!
I think this was my fourth sail with Endeavour Sailing. I highly recommend booking a private charter for an afternoon. It’s the best.
Had to include the back of my romper! I’m not much of a romper girl, but this one is an exception. It looks more like a dress!
There was no line at the Juice Bar after the sail, so we all ordered a scoop or two. Even the non-ice cream lovers were obsessed. (Coffee is my current favorite flavor there right now… I can’t get enough.)
We got lucky with dinner reservations at The Galley. It’s the best spot for sunset drinks and dinner.
