My mind is still on Nantucket, especially as I look down at my Nantucket surf bracelet. It's basically a coil of white rope, twisted and braided in a complicated procedure that reminds me a little too much of algebra. Our resident bracelet expert is the Quiet Man's father, perhaps the gentlest human being on earth. Every other year, during our family reunions, "Opa" can be found weaving coils and coils of rope so that each and every one of us can have a new surf bracelet. Apparently this procedure is exhausting. Sorry to wear you out Opa, but I'm definitely going to want a new surf bracelet next time. Hang in there.
Here's a few pics of our visits to Sankaty and Brant Point lighthouses. Just us.... Some of the boy cousins...Boy in flight....Sailor and her cousin, hands linked....I'll be back tomorrow with my Fourth of July menu. And also, I'm working like mad to create the perfect pound cake. Making progress, but I'm not satisfied enough to post my recipe.
