This time last week I was out on a sailboat in Nantucket Harbor with a great group of friends, two bottles of rosé, and the most insanely gorgeous September sunshine. While I wish we could do that every day, I’ll settle for sharing a few of my favorite pictures (taken by the supremely talented Paul Havel — you need to check out his stop motion videos on Instagram!) from the afternoon.

Ali, me, my sister Reilly, and Amy. It was so fun to show Ali the island for the first time and always a blast to have Amy in tow… She might be my grandmother’s favorite person in the world.

By the way, if you’re going to Nantucket and want to take a sailboat ride, Endeavor Sailing is the only way to go. We’ve had a great experience with them twice now and love the crew as much as the boat. I can’t wait to go again next summer!

I loved Paul’s KJP boat shoes. They come in so many fun colors!

I wore this sweater and Amy swears by these striped shirts —  it’s no surprise we packed coordinating outfits without knowing it. You can see our first sailing excursion here and more Nantucket recommendations here!

  1. Hello Mackenzie, you really had a great day with your sister and friends. I wanna try sailing in Nantucket Harbor too with friends and for sure it will be fun.

  2. The title of this post couldn’t be more accurate. Our two trips to ACK were undoubtedly my favorite trips of the entire summer. This sailing adventure…I could have stayed on the boat all day! Love you.
