Summer Weekends: A Bike Ride To Sconset


Happy Monday! Did you enjoy the first days of summer? Sadly, the Solstice brought a bug my way, sidelining me on what was a tortuously gorgeous weekend (nothing makes me grumpier than missing sunny weather). Luckily, we'd already snuck in a few perfect summer days before the season's official start, so why don't we kick off the week with a bike ride to Sconset?


There are crushed clam shell alleys to explore and gray shingled cottages to admire. They absolutely ooze charm and sweet details - clever names, window boxes filled with flowers, garden gates, and picket fences.





 Choose the porch you'd most like to relax on or the garden you wish was yours to tend...



There's still time for a picnic on the beach... with all that peddling we've earned the lobster rolls...




Before heading home it's one more glance out to the sea and the promise to return soon... maybe to stay a bit longer next time. 

Where does your favorite bike path lead? 

Here's to a long and beautiful summer! XO

  1. Good Morning Jeanne

    Thank you for the beautiful bike ride around Nantucket. This is familiar terrain and beautiful to travel it, once again, albeit on a virtual bike ride with your good self.
    There is a peacefulness about Nantucket and the light is superb.

    Enjoy and wishing you good health

    1. Hi Loi, I think next spring we should meet up either in Maine or on Nantucket when I make the annual trip to visit family! Wouldn't that be lovely? XO

  3. Jeanne,
    We were the very lucky guests of dear friends two summers ago on a chartered yacht from Newport to Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket. Evenings were spent luxuriating under the stars, aboard the boat with full bellies and spirits full of dreams. Our days were rather busy, biking to the beaches, shopping and trying to look like every bit the celebrity as we were skippered back to the yacht. It was heavenly.
    Sorry that you caught a bug, but I hope you are feeling better very soon.
