Ah, leaving Nantucket. Loading up the ferry boat -- it was like the line at Disney World! But once again we went to the upper deck (after all, the hair can't get any worse than it already was!) and enjoyed the sights of Nantucket Harbor.
Most of those sights involved large yachts!
Given our travel time of the year and the fact that we were on the far east of the east coast, we expected a sunset cruise and the evening light was rich and golden.
Along the way, we noticed this boat with loads of people on it. That looked fun, too! Maybe next time.
We were pleased to strike up a conversation with Frank from New Jersey, and his son, James. We learned he was on the Board of Governors at Rutgers and since both his university and our local school, Michigan State, are in the Big Ten, there was lots to talk about!
And then came the sunset.
Well, what can I say. Headed straight into it, beautiful skies. Glorious.
Going, going, gone.
It was dark when we pulled into Oak Bluffs harbor, lights sparkling. We could have headed home, but no!
We had a destination, a slam-bang, big noise finale to our lovely day!
We made our way to the boardwalk where we had a ringside seat!
And settled in for the big show!
Well, Oak Bluffs, you sure know how to put on a good fireworks celebration!
And, you also know how to offer a great finale to our last full day of vacation.
But our plane doesn't leave till late tomorrow -- so there's still a little more fun to come!
