Blogger Sherry Ott is on our Islands of New England cruise now. She is documenting her journey through social media. 
Bristol, RI
“First New England sunset is putting on a great show painting the sky with color! Due to weather and winds we had a change of itinerary and docked in Bristol, Rhode Island – where they have an outdoor concert tonight we are walking to. Good call captain John!” #BlountAdventure
Martha’s Vineyard, MA
“Picture perfect Oak Bluffs in Martha’s Vineyard. We docked all day at this famous island and learned about its history, architecture, politics, and Hollywood residents. Oh yes…and we ate lobster…lots of lobster.”
Nantucket, MA
“I woke up to a golden light beaming through my cabin window. I pulled the curtain back and saw this. I grabbed my camera, ran out on deck and enjoyed the sunrise all by myself at 5:30 a.m.”
Nantucket, MA
“There are 3 lighthouses on the island of Nantucket and I saw 2 of them today. There are treacherous sandbars around the island too so years ago they used to have numerous lightships – boats they sent out to the sandbars with lights on them. The men on those boats would be there 6 months at a time…and they took up basket weaving to pass the time! And that’s why Nantucket is famous for their basket! Life before smart phones tv’s…”
Nantucket, MA
“The thing that stood out to me on my first trip to Nantucket were the buildings. An entire island of the same houses and buildings – all covered in unpainted shingles that weather to a gray color. Only a limited number of colors used on the doors, and all have pitched roofs. Strict housing regulations keep the island this way and its one of the reasons Nantucket is so popular. It’s also why the island is often referred to as the Little Gray Lady of the Sea.”
Sherry will be continuing her adventures in the New England Islands and posting blogs on her website and social media channels.
