Nantucket Lighthouses

Having fun on Nantucket?...  I am... at least on my vicarious blog vacation!  Don't you love Nantucket's lighthouses?  Even if you live east of nowhere and have never been anywhere in your life, you've probably seen a picture of one of these beloved landmarks that have a long history of safe guarding vessels.  As you don your bikini today, here's something to chuckle about... (or impress your buddies with as you play 18 holes)....  During the 1850's, the viewing platform of Sankaty Head Light had to be widened to accomodate ladies' fashionable hoop skirts!  Not quite as comfortable as today's fashions (except maybe those skinny jeans in which case I'd choose the hoops)!
