U.S.A. Nantucket

Friday 29th  July  2011
 
15.00hrs  We sailed into Nantucket from Edgartown , Marth's Vinyard, a distance of 27 miles,
The weather was cool, breezy, and overcast, a big change from last week where it was 110 F  or 45 C degrees.
 
we sailed from Vinyard harbour to Edgartown on wednesday and spent 2 nights in this special place.
 
Edgartown was special, the white clapboard buildings were mostly a couple of hundred years old and beautifully
maintained, It was all very upmarket , even the people and their dogs looked upmarket.
Aileen took the bus to " Oaks Bluff " for the day yesterday while skipper fiddled around with the generator ,
We went to a french restaurant called " L'etoile" for dinner, 
later we got a call from a Craig Dowley, an American who lives in Ireland with his wife Mary , However his mother has a house
in Martha's Vinyard and they are here on holidays at present, Aileen and Craig feel they are related from way back when, 
God, its a small world, I keep saying that
We all went for a few scoops after finishing the fine french cuisine, skipper had almost too much , !  
 
As we left Edgartown, we passed lots of Oppies out sailing and training, but they had a great selection of
different coloured sails, all making for a pretty picture,
 
Thats all for today,
