If you follow me on Instagram, you probably know that had an amazing Memorial Day weekend in Cape Cod and on Nantucket Island! We lucked out and avoided some dreary weather (but did get hit with a surprise cool-front!).
I'll admit, I was a little sad about being back in Louisiana, but I'm working on being thankful and appreciative and that goes for my little hometown, too. Thibodaux can be beautiful…
But Massachusetts was absolutely gorgeous! These are some of my favorite pictures from the trip :)
Nautical outfits with Mom at the Hingham Shipyard Marina. We stopped near Quincy to eat lunch at Walburgers. Apparently, there's a reality TV show that her friend watched and since it was on the way to the cape, we had to stop for lunch. The food didn't disappoint.
Next stop, Cape Cod. We hit some serious traffic, but finally made it to our hotel. We stayed at The Hyannis Resort and Conference Center. It was really nice, and only a quick car ride away from the beach!
This is at Kalmus Park beach; it's got a lovely view of the harbor. Since it was late in the afternoon and still early in the season, it was completely deserted.
So much fun!
It was Figawi Race Weekend, so we saw all the sailboats on the ferry from Hyannis to Nantucket!
If I had a dollar for every time I heard someone say, "Where the Figawi?", I'd be able to take another trip to Nantucket next weekend!
The whole island is absolutely delightful.
The Lilly Jeep! If only my dad would let me wrap my jeep like this...
We attended mass at St. Mary's (Our Lady of the Isle). It was beautiful.
Check out the serious cobble stone street. And I thought New Orleans was hard to walk through...
Mom snapped this as we were heading back to the ferry. Wishing we could have had another day on the island!
I cannot wait to go back because this trip seemed to fly by.
I'll definitely experience another Figawi weekend again, hopefully with friends after we turn twenty-one so we can fully appreciate the experience: Mimosas on the ferry (the girls seated next to me seemed to be having a ball), Dark & Stormies, and all the fun at Cisco Brewery ;)
