Departing Cuttyhunk Kindred Spirit & Magnolia headed Lake Tashmoo.

Entering Lake Tashmoo from Vineyard Sound can be a little challenging for deep draft vessels but we did not have any troubles. Some history of Lake Tashmoo ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tashmoo_Springs_Pumping_Station )

Magolia being passed by a sailboat…not the first and not the last….the life of a Krogen Owner….

Arriving Tashmoo we met up with our mutual friend Colin. (MV Tortuga)

Magnolia’s Official Photographer, Mrs Michele Watson and her able assistant Alan Watson captured the below photos. They will become the center piece of our new note cards!

Departing Tashmoo Magnolia and Kindred Spirit made passage for Nantucket.

Spending time with my pal, Nuntuckets version of the “Thinker.” ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Thinker )

The crew of Magnolia has never visited Nantucket before so we all took a bus tour of the island to get an overview. I thought Sankaty Head Light and the surrounding area was really beautiful. ( https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sankaty_Head_Light )

We could not visit Nantucket without a beach day. Even anything made a rare beach appearance!

Celebrating Annette’s Birthday started with a her favorite sparkling rose wine. Michele wove the amazingly soft dish towel.

We then visited a lovely restaurant in Nantucket for dinner.

As is always the case we had a terrific celebration.

These are the people most like the image behind!!!

Heading back after a wonderful evening

Cedar Shingles are definitely the siding of choice along with beautiful flowers!

Yes, lets go to the Brewery today cause it might rain TOMORROW!!!!!
