Today the group met for a late brunch. It was a well needed sleep-in from the long travel day yesterday. The group then set off to the Sankaty Lighthouse on the point of the island. The weather was a little blustery but the spectacular views made it worth while. We drove around the coast and got to see the ocean and the coastline. Next the group went to downtown Nantucket. The old cobblestone streets really traced the history of the island. We ate at quaint cafes and shopped the boutiques. Not much was open but we found to our surprise what we were looking for.
We returned for the duration of the afternoon and feasted on a delicious spaghetti dinner, courteously made by our leaders Dr. Woodard and Mr. Shackett. After our dinner we drove to downtown once again for a 7:30 showing of the movie Logan. The movie theater was tiny but had lots of charm and was very private. The movie was both thrilling and heart-provoking at the same time. Now we are getting ready to sleep so we can have an early morning start to the whaling museum tomorrow.
