When I’m not on Nantucket Island, I’m in Key West, FL. Another island.
Many Nantucketers spend the winter in K.W. Islanders seek out islands and when we leave home we like our other island home. But, we always take a bit of Nantucket with us. The first thing I do is string up scallop lights above the doorways and around the stair bannister. I also wrap the palm trees with lights. Our friends, Steve and JoAnn Marcoux started this tradition in their Nantucket and Key West homes and it’s so joyful, with lovely, romantic lighting, not just reserved for Christmas time.
Jo’s orange bike leaning against the front porch post is a typical scene in Key West. Biking is the favorite mode of transportation here.
