Nantucket Vacation: Day 7

Belated post…

Day 7.  Mostly just the trip back home.  Took a lot of photos at the docks for the ferry, on the ferry leaving Nantucket, and approaching the mainland.  Enjoy.

Nantucket Vacation: Days 5 & 6

Belated post…

As I was going over the photos from these days, we had a big power outage.  Supposedly over 200 homes had no electricity.  Power went out around 10:45pm and came back on sometime after 1:ooam!  Sadly, my laptop was not fully charged…

Anyway, below are some photos taken in the Nantucket Whaling Museum, the observatory floor of the museum, the “children’s beach” where there is a small lighthouse, and some plants around the house.  Also, there was this really weird full moon one night.  It was bright orange!

Check out the photos below:

Nantucket Vacation: Day’s 3 & 4

Yesterday was a pretty relaxing day.  We went to the beach, saw some more of the island, and I took a few photos of that.

Today we went out on a charter fishing boat.  It was a blast.  We caught a total of 20 Bluefish and I caught one Stripped Bass!  We kept the striper, three of the blues, and threw the rest back in the ocean.  It was a bit rainy so I did not get too many photos during the fishing trip.  I reeled in the bass, which apparently made me the champion of the day, because they are more rare of a catch than other fish I guess.  I thought about getting it preserved and mounted as a gift for my friend’s grandparent’s, who’s house we’re staying at this week, but it was simply too expensive to do sadly.  I’ll have to think of something else in that department.  Very fun day though!

Check out some of my photos from the previous two days below:

Nantucket Vacation: Days 1 & 2

After a relatively stress free 5 hour drive, I arrived at the Hyannis Terminal in Massachusetts.  Got lost for about 15 minutes trying to find the parking lot that was open, and took the shuttle back to the port.  I paid for my ticket for the “fast ferry” at 1:55pm.  They run slower ferries that take a two hour trip, the “fast ferry’s” take only an hour to get to the island.

My friends picked me up at the Nantucket port and took me for a quick tour of the town, very charming area I may add.  Then we proceeded to make our way to his grandparent’s house, which is only a few minutes drive.  I took a few photos that day and a fair amount more today, though it’s been pretty foggy.

We attempted some crabbing today, didn’t catch any crab, but managed to catch turtles and snakes!  I got a photo of one of the turtles.  We’ll try some more crabbing another day.

I took some photos of and around my friend’s Grandparents’ house, where I’m staying also.  Enjoy!

I will be leaving for another short vacation tomorrow morning with a friend to Nantucket.  I’ve never been, but he assures me it’s very nice.  Looking forward to some more general relaxing, taking some photos, and fishing.

What happened to my regular updates?  Well, I’ve been busy helping my old/new WoW guild reform.  It’s going pretty well so far.  I expect to spend more time on music again after this vacation, as the WoW stuff should be a bit less hectic by then.

Check back here soon, as I should have some new photos coming this way…

Vacation Photos: Round Three!

What did I do today?  …  Well, after breakfast I attempted some more fishing.  While I didn’t catch any fish, I did manage to see a whole family of birds flying back and forth, into and out of the water, catching small fish for the babies.  That was pretty cool, took some photos of that.

After that, went out on the waverunner with my uncle, took a bunch of photos of a couple parts of the island.  I wasn’t able to take some of the “out in the middle of the ocean” photo’s that I wanted, but I was able to take a bunch of photos of some of the crazy-insane-super-expensive houses on one of the island’s peninsulas.  From what I am told some of them are worth over $20,000,000!!!

I also saw the new Harry Potter movie.  It was pretty good, though I’m not really a fanatical fan like some people.  I would have been happy seeing ‘The Hangover’, since I missed out on that when it was released.  Now we have to wait 10 years for the next HP movie I guess.  That’s what I don’t like about them, frankly I don’t see why Harry won’t just use that evil killing spell that I know he must know by now and get rid of the bad guys.  The same way they use it then to a “Gollum Happy-Dance” afterwords.  :\

Finally, as I am writing this I am downloading “The Secret of Monkey Island: Special Edition” via Steam to my MacBook in a VM.  I hope it will run.  If not I’ll just have to wait until I get home from vacation to play. 🙂  Make sure you buy your copy of SMI:SE!!!

As for this batch of photos, I took over 60 photos in all.  Sorry for the lame captions this time.  Maybe I’ll update them eventually, for now I just wanted to post them to the site.  🙂

Here they are:

Did some fishing today for about 3-4 hours.  Didn’t catch anything though.  I did see some alligators, maybe they scared the fish away! 🙁

Went shopping and bought some new sandals which I needed, then bought some new Tee-Shirts.

Here are some more random photos.

Here are the first few photos from my vacation, day 1.

I plan on doing some fishing in the lagoon a few times this week.  I’ll have to watch out for alligators though, cause they are in there!
