Surf's Up!

I wanted to go surfing in New England. Good question is where? Rhode Island has some places, though it seemed like Nantucket might have better waves. So off to Nantucket I went. All in all it turned out pretty good.

Nantucket Main Street

The town is close to the harbor. Nantucket has many upscale stores - seems like this is an island where well to do folks go. It is a nice place to window shop. There are restaurants to the right of main street.


I did not stay here though as I walked the streets of Nantucket I saw many stylish buildings.

    So where's your sports travel tip for surfing John? Seriously now, you must come visit us & I'll take you surfing at some gr8 Sydney beaches where you won't need a wetsuit. Better still come in your winter, our summer!
