There’s nothing quite like stepping off the ferry or plane and taking in that first breath of Nantucket air. You’re immediately overcome by island’s timeless, preserved beauty. The light is always slightly saturated, and hydrangeas dot the landscape with puffs of color. If you ask me, we don’t allow ourselves to get lost in it enough. Instead, we’re always moving onto the next thing.  With every fleeting Nantucket moment, don’t you ever wish you could just freeze time – island time that is? Now, I’ll have to get back to you on that phenomenon, but for  now I have something pretty darn close. Follow along for 24 moments that had Nantucket lovers freezing time with just a simple snap.
