during the wtf ridiculously, abnormally cold & gloomy winter days [why am i complaining whilst my warmish stay in la], it’s always wonderful to recount the warmer days: nantucket in the summer. i had been pre-warned that i’d be a fish out of water, but nbd [are those bees or wasps?]. kind of reminded me of private christian school. i had a little nantucket 101 on the old money vs. new money on the island. so opulent. so gatsby. where’s daisy and what about love?

here are some love[ly] visuals:

entrance to steps beach. there is a long path of steps between a lot of green before you reach the beach. pretty magical.

little house on the prairie?

steps beach had their beautiful collection of a million seashells, even in the waters, which proved to be quite dangerous when wrestling boys¬†waves. regrettably, i didn’t take any boys¬†shells for souvenir.

fourth of july weekend.

this admittedly was relaxing to be away from big city lights & loud obnoxious noises.

with this peaceful silence of only waves crashing, you almost want to think about marriage & babies…and then i turned on loud music from my spotify

foie gras 3 ways: terrine, torchon, & seared. delicious!

as if i didn’t have enough duck, i had more deliciously seared duck. mid-dinner, the lobster face across from me turned into a duck as well.

festive fourth of july themed at the infamous pearl restaurant & lounge. their award-winning passionfruit cosmo was fantastic.

we just missed robert deniro & drew barrymore. what’s even cooler is that john kerry was in town for the weekend, not too far away.
