I’ve racked my brain trying to remember the year I first visited Nantucket on a day-trip from Boston and the best clue I can come up with is the Nantucket Over Sand Permit t-shirt I bought, which places the timeframe in 2006.

Since then I’ve been back a few more times and it has become one of my absolute, hands-down, favorite places in the world. Beautiful beaches, great food, and a relaxed pace combined in a setting that mixes a weathered New England fishing village with colonial-style prep. What’s not to like?

So, you can imagine how excited I was when I learned that the company Mike works for was sponsoring the Nantucket Wine Festival, and doubly so when I realized that the wine festival coincides with our wedding anniversary.

Celebrate our fourth anniversary by spending a long weekend on Nantucket in mid-May with the opportunity to attend events featuring great wine and delicious food pairings? Let me think for a moment….. YES, please!

I’ve been taking lots of pictures and scribbling lots of notes so that I can share my adventures and recommendations with you when we get back next week. In the meantime, here’s a photo from our first day to set the scene.
