Our Colorful Cottage By the Sea

As our small plane approached the "Faraway Island" known as Nantucket,
 I was amazed to find the reason it is called the Grey Lady.

50 Shades of Grey is definately alive on Nantucket-
But it is in the beautiful weathered homes that are framed with
 stunning flower boxes and shutters that keep them safe from storms.

With the Odd Nantucket Red Home

But nothing was as colorful as the
Little Cottage By the Sea

Directions on Nantucket are simple
Turn Right Past Millies
Cross the Bridge
Turn left at the mailboxes
Cottage is on the right with Yellow Gate

And there We were. I had found this many years
ago in a magazine. Can you believe we got to stay here.
Doors unlocked, we open to a busrst of Bohemien Color

Ok I have to admit my smile and excitement was bursting
almost as much as the colorful hues .
The quaint cottage made up of vintage fishing shacks
burst with a kalidoscope of hues that you just have to smile

But Wait- An Outdoor Shower- 
A warm breeze off the Shore, a Million stars and a warm shower
in Nantucket.. 

This was the perfect place to spend the last few days 
The EelSkin Inn in Madaket

But wait it gets better. Who better to be your Neighbor 
But Mister Rogers- Well he was for 38 years
Living in the Neighborhood
 in the Crooked House

My visit and blog to Nantucket has just begun
The Memories will live forever
Just like the a Burst of Poppy in a field of Grey Green Sea Grass
