Okay. So if you haven’t figured it out already, we are sort of in love with Nantucket.

Can’t event take it. And as I’ve already said a million times, it rained the entire trip – I can’t imagine how in love with the place I’d be had it been sunny.

So we went to Nantucket with Pavan for the Film Festival. I have to believe that it was fate considering a few months ago before any of this transpired I wrote about how much I would love to visit Nantucket and upon tasting a cocktail made with Pavan, fell in love. It could not have been a more perfect trip. [Full disclosure: Pavan paid for our flight + accommodations.]

We were set up in the legacy lounge of the Dreamland Theater all week, where we had a spread of cocktails and the movieinspired recipes I had throw together last month. Super fun does not even begin to describe it.

Since I wake up at the crack of dawn, we had a chance to take walks in the drizzly rain and be vacation paparazzi. This photo below is a picture my husband got on his iPhone one morning that I love. It’s like a spooky pretend pirate ship. Helllllllo Johnny Depp are you on there?

We had some of the best food I’ve eaten while on the island.

We did our fair share of chip-eating at corazon del mar, and a few of the other places we ate dinner at included Cru (where I had the BEST lobster roll of my life, it was seriously just like lumps of lobster covered in butter and herbs, no mayo, on buttery brioche. I die.), Galley Beach and Club Car. We also ate tons of snacks and sandwiches at a few places, including the straight wharf fish market (the swordfish sandwich was so fresh, simple and amazing), provisions and center street bistro.


Obviously, I still can’t get over the hydrangeas. Enjoy the photo overload below!

Now don’t you just want to go there?!

[as a side note, I know a lot of you have been asking where you can get Pavan. They are still expanding throughout the US so in the meantime, this is a list of approved online retailers that can ship it if you would like a bottle. I have no affiliation with these places and don’t get anything if you purchase Pavan, but I wanted to share since so many of you have inquired:]

    That.Lobster.Roll. Ugh.

    Also, why do I think of Murder She Wrote when I see Nantucket? I don’t even know if it took place there. But I want to live there and wear sweaters and boots and ride bikes with baskets.

    Wow – I have always wanted to go and your pics are everything I imagined it would be, and more.

This is definitely a bucket list destination!

    Amy @ Croquet & Cocktails — July 6, 2013 @ 10:14 pm

    My husband grew up on the Cape and is all “ehhhhh” about Nantucket whenever I suggest hopping over there. Can you imagine?! One day I’ll get him to take me there! Or maybe I should go without him, with that attitude, who needs him as tour guide!!!

    Jura Cullen — July 7, 2013 @ 7:10 am

    Lovely photos despite the rain. I had never heard of Pavan until now! Sounds delicious and looks rather like how in England we make up Pimms – another great summer drink though gin based…

    Amanda L — July 7, 2013 @ 9:25 am

    I don’t know how you did it but all of your rainy pictures make it look so unbelievably beautiful and romantic that I don’t think it would have been nearly as pretty if it had been sunny. You rock.

    Shannon — July 7, 2013 @ 11:33 am

    OH my goodness. These photos are just gorgeous and yes, totally make me lust for Nantucket. And now I’m completely hungry. I particularly love the hand painted juice bar sign. That is awesome.

    Are the blistered serranos eaten alone with lemon? I’m intrigued! First time visitor, and your blog is honestly the first that I actually enjoy the blogging! Your candor and originality are genuine and Imappreciate it! Coming back! Also, excuse the exclamations; promise I’m not yelling. :)

    Nikki J — July 7, 2013 @ 6:59 pm

    It’s funny, because we also went to Cape Cod! We just got back Tuesday. We stayed in Yarmouth though. And it also rained the WHOLE time we were there. We got one day with about 3 hours of sunshine I think. But honestly, it didn’t matter. We walked the beach in the rain, picked up sea shells, the exact ones you took pictures of, too. We didn’t care. The Cape is beautiful, and I want to go back, and/or live there. :)

    Yay looks like you had fun. I love rainy weather so that would have been my dream. I haven’t been to Nantucket, but i edited a book about it, does that count?? I love that kind of easy breezy seaside life.

    Katie — July 9, 2013 @ 11:21 am

    Inquiring minds want to know… did you eat ice cream at the Juice Bar and if so, what flavor? I *love* that place! (Amaretto chip is my fave!)

    From your Real Life Wednesday post, I HAD to come over and read about your time in Nantucket. I visited for the first time in September…SO AWESOME! I also ate at Corazon del Mar and CRU, wonderful! If you go back, be sure to get ahold of me for a few more noteworthy suggestions. I went as part of a pork crawl and hit 9 restaurants in 1 afternoon – – – – way too much delicious fun on such an incredible island! So fun to see your photos!!

    Not sure how I missed this the first time around, but it makes me so homesick! Lovely photos (and isn’t Petticoat Row Bakery to die for???).
