Jeanne of the lovely blog flyinggma.com reminded me of my Nantucket trip last summer when she mentioned that her dad collected clocks. We saw the most beautiful clock shop on the island, and when I looked through photos the other night I realized I had some shots that I didn’t post last year. (I take a lot of photos when we travel, but I didn’t want to bore you to death!) So away we go….
First up, the clock shop.
All the clocks in this shop were positively gleaming. Sorry about the distortion–my Canon point-and-shoot does that a lot with tall buildings.
I love this sign…
and the wares inside.
Flowers are a big part of Nantucket. Hydrangeas do so well there because they love the sandy soil.
How sweet is this all-white display? Most of the buildings on Nantucket are done in gray shingle siding like this one.
Bikes are everywhere too. We didn’t bring our car with us and did just fine.
I love the way the white trim looks with the weathered shingle. Wonderful backdrop for flowering plants, don’t you think?
To be continued….
Great weekend, everyone!
