Nantucket Stroll Eat Drink and Very Merry

Christmas Stroll on Nantucket 
Was magical
The Grey Lady gets dressed up
for Christmas 

Storefronts decked out in Christmas lights
Trees and even light poles
Shopping for greenery off a surfboard 
Only at Stroll

ACKceptional shops to make your 
Holidays fashions dazzle
Classical,Cashmere,Nantucket Reds
(with A Christmas Twist) and
Vintage to bring in the old with the new

Eat Drink and Be Merry
Stroll in to BOHo for a Bay Scallop Roll
Sip on a Mule at Ventuno
Made by Nantucket's favorite Bartender
And Social Media Guru Holly

The lights shimmer off the water in this faraway Island
The twinkle in the eyes of young and old
 as bright as the stars in the sky
are a sight to be hold

And then he appears
It is true
He was chubby and plump, a right jolly old elf
As he arrived in the Cutter
I laughed when I saw him, in spite of myself


And as quick as they 
came and spread spirit to Nantucket
Like down on a thistle 
The Ferry was loaded and all could be heard
was the whistle
All the Strollers were gone - out of sight
Good Time was had by all- 
Merry Christmas to All To all a Good Night

Twas The Night Before Stroll

Twas the night before Stroll
Off to Nantucket I go
Shirts and Shorts left behind
But pACKed my Fur Stole

The Inns are all dressed from head to toe
In Holly and Ivy peeking through the snow
Christmas lights will glisten
on the cobblestone beneath
Even the Brant Point Lighthouse has a wreath

Santa arrives by Coast Guard Cutter
I am sure a sight to see
And in the center of town
a Magical Tree

 I travel this weekend to not only ignite the holiday spirit for myself but spread it to guests that will be staying at  The Sherburne Inn.
I look forward to creating memories for others through my hospitality and cooking but more importantly:
I look forward to experiencing the magic of this Faraway Island
To see the giant wreath on the lighthouse as we round the harbor, to see the boats, their masts all aglow with bright shining lights and colorful trees.
To experience the heartfelt joy that the locals will spread as they share their food,their crafts and their island with myself and the many that come to Stroll.

Let The Adventure Begin
