I had started a post about how the year ended for me on many positive notes. However, I started it so late at night, that I never finished and I am already onto the beginning of my summer adventures.
Technically today was the last day of the school year. I took a sick day and made my way to Nantucket to start my painting course. Before I even left my apartment though, I was challenged and will continue to be as I venture into oil painting for the first time. The task in order to get here was to find a way to transport all my belongings for two weeks, including linens, art supplies and fifteen canvases AND my bike. Admittedly, I did not have to bring my bike, but its Nantucket and I don't want to have to pay a taxi whenever I want to adventure! Thankfully, my aunt and uncle drove me to the high speed ferry dock where they took my luggage and all I had to do was wheel my bike on board. Once on the island, I called myself a taxi like a big girl. I could hardly make it the 500ft to the taxi stand with all my garbage. ( I am fairly certain my suit case gave itself a flat tire under the weight of all my stuff!) Going home, with semi dry/wet canvases should be interesting!
The stairs up to the bedrooms and a glimpse of the sitting area.
I still can't believe I am doing this! Aside from going off to college (an hour from home) I have never gone anywhere without someone I know. This is seriously an adventure and I am very excited to start learning about the island and getting to work. Tomorrow's class starts at 9 with a "field trip" to the Whaling Museum around 2pm.
I am not sure if I can post every night, perhaps its adrenaline tonight, but I will be sure to continue to take pictures (with my new iphone5) and check in.
