I’m back! And I’m linking up with Sara from Lake Shore Runner for her Tried it Tuesday!
I’m going to recap this past weekend at Nantucket. I know I definitely will not be able to do this weekend justice, as it was nothing short of incredible. I will do a full wrap up of all the good eats and drinks tomorrow for WIAW.
But before I start spamming you with pictures… Please don’t forget to vote for me here for the Cover of RW! #Shameless
We got on island late Friday night. After a long
day week of work, we were totally spent. BF and I figured we’d have a low-key night in Friday, get up Saturday and be ready for the weekend. My parents being the brilliant influencers they are, suggested we stop at The Juice Bar before heading home. I had zero objections, so I finished my night with a DELICIOUS mint chip cone. I’d like so say I had a picture, but I’m a bad blogger, totally forgot, and inhaled said ice cream before it could be documented. #GetInMyBelly
Saturday, BF and I woke up after a GLORIOUS nights sleep (everything is so much darker and quieter in Nantucket. You can even see more than 10 stars…thanks light pollution) and ventured out for a nice long run. We capped it at 10 and called it a day. Living in a city, it was an absolute treat to run on a bike path, removed from the road, without stop signs and traffic lights. The headwind on the way back home was brutal but BF dropped it into gear after mile 7 and smoked me. Gettin it.
Obligatory trip to The Green ensued where I spent $38 on smoothies and eggs…. Nothing short of amazing.
Afterwards, we hit up Cisco Brewery. It was incredible. This was the first time I’ve been here during Figawi (Tried It Tuesday hayyyy). It was packed. We got there around 12ish, and waited in line until 115… yes, 75 minutes. To drink. It was at capacity when we got there (party people) and was going with a one in one out rule. The line was overwhelming, but totally worth it.
We waited in line (always a line) for beer, and made the executive decision to buy 6 beers, and a 12 pack to avoid waiting again. After said purchase we were told you can’t open the 12 pack in the brewery. #EpicFail
After the brewery, we headed back to my house to get ready for dinner and unwind a bit. I will say I had an entrepreneurial moment, as I picked up two very inebriated people, drove them into town (on our way and roughly 3 miles) for $20. Their struggle was so real.
BF and I hit up LoLa Burger (#OMG) for dinner, then met up with some friends in town that evening.
Side note: I woke up Saturday morning with a rather raspy voice. I assume its from allergies, but by the time Saturday night rolled around it was gone. Like totally gone.
Sunday morning I woke up totally mute. I figured since running cures everything, I should go do a shake out 5 miler. It was absolutely gorgeous out, and warm (65). The wind was so brutal that my ear buds kept blowing out. At first I thought it was kind of hysterical, and then it got old. Like real quick. #Bitter Anyways…
Post run, BF and I packed up and decided to hit up The Green again, #YOLO, and then drove out to Sconset to walk along the cliffs to the lighthouse. I have been coming to Nantucket since before I can even remember, but have never been out to the Sankaty (at least what I can remember). It was incredible. The weather was perfect and the views were absolutely unreal.
Wouldn’t hate this as my backyard…
The rest of our day revolved around eating, so I will save that for tomorrow. But I will say this was one of the most fun, and relaxing (can that even happen at Figawi?) weekend on island in a while.
I will save you the gory details of all the people riding the struggle bus and battling the Sunday scares on the way home. But for now, bye Figawi, see you next year? Maybe?
What was the best part of your MDW?
Anyone else like to explore places on vacation? It was so fun seeing a different part of the island. It’s so easy to just go with what you know, but I had an awesome time seeing some new sights!
