Off to Nantucket ...
... at the front of the boat and happened quickly- poor Ruth was just too small and adults leaned out in front of her.
Exhilarating experience. They are just so huge.

The rooms and bathrooms were clean, the kitchen was stocked and immaculate, the staff were super helpful, and the bus stop is right outside the door. The buses are only every hour, but if you plan well and don't plan to be anywhere after 9pm you'll be fine. Would definitely stay again.
