This week Wilma, Gus, My Mom, and I Adventured to Nantucket where we spent much of our time exploring various beaches. The Beaches of Nantucket vary based on the location providing differing surf, temperature, and terrain. We were lucky to stay right near Siasconset Beach, which we spent endless hours exploring. In addition to Siasconset Beach we visited: Fisherman’s Beach, Jetties Beach, Brant Point Beach (you will see those photos in my Brant Point Lighthouse blog), and Pocomo Beach.
We had a refreshing Adventure to the beaches of Nantucket. Wilma, Gus, and I spent 1.25-2 hours each morning walking along Siasconet Beach, and also visited this beach later in the day with My Mom. The waves were often crashing loudly and quite spectacular, although it became much calmer on our last day when the sun decided to arise. We found many scallop shells, horseshoe crabs and crab shells. On Jetties Beach we found picturesque trails through the seagrass which arrived at the Beach, and a very long jetty. The water was calm and a lovely tropical-like color many slipper shells scattered throughout the sand. Fisherman’s Beach we entered through a short stair boardwalk down to the beach. My favorite part of this beach was the Moon Snail Shells, I found many, although mostly slightly cracked on their journey to the shore. We found Pocomo Beach when the tide was in, providing a very small beach front. It was foggy on our visit, creating quite the mystic scene.
My favorite parts of the beaches were looking for shells, and other treasures from the sea. Wilma and Gus loved digging, and Gus picked up and tossed whatever he could find. The pups even found a couple tennis balls, which was quite exciting. I was especially thrilled to have one day where we could appreciate the sunrise, and the warmth of the sun. It was just lovely and ended our journey with a gorgeous scene. So glad we could visit many beaches in Nantucket on our trip to the Island this week (Rating: 4).
