I took a deep breath to slow down and fully experience the many natural wonders of my new island home. I share with you Madaket, the western tip location of Nantucket. It is a perfect spot for self reflection or fun with family and friends.
|Majestic Madaket Beach|
Named after native Millie Jewett, she was a local legend who spent her time caring for the beaches, animals, and residents of Madaket. Always on the lookout for shipwrecks, she earned the highest civilian rank from the U.S. Coast Guard.
Millie's Bridge and Hither Creek are the entrance to Smith's Point Beach, an-out-of-the-way hidden gem. The bridge was named after Madaket Millie. She sold ice cream ice cream from her yard and greeted visitors, which was located on Hither Creek. The creek is a famous spot for watching egrets.
Smith's Point is named after one of the early Smith settlers on Nantucket.
These are just some of the sights and discoveries of majestic Madaket. Our next location will be Surfside and beyond.
