See the Island on Two Wheels by C. Oscar Olson

If you’ve spent any time at all on Nantucket this summer, you know it has been a hot one. All the surprising amounts of sun we’ve seen has driven people to bask in their air-conditioned cars and take a pass on the bike rides, so another thing you probably noticed was the increase in traffic. With September comes cooler weather, making this month the ideal time to get back on two wheels. September brings smaller crowds, less fuss, and fewer things to worry about. In our opinion, it’s simply a lot more fun. All the best spots are still open for business, and the ocean is still warm. End-of-season sales will start soon, and you might even find deals on accommodations. Getting by on a bike is a great way to take in the island’s quieter side all while slowing things down and spending time with friends and family. The exercise is just an added perk. Every ferry operating between here and all ports makes transporting your own two-wheel ride easy and inexpensive, but in the event that you can’t bring your own bike, there are lots of places to rent quality, well maintained bicycles for adults and kids of all ages. Young’s Bicycle Shop, just a few steps from Steamboat Wharf, has been a family business on Nantucket for more than 90 years. They make the process easy and fun. Say “hi,” hop on, and get on with your day because the Young family and their wonderful staff will provide you with some of the best bike rental options. Their top-quality fleet of Cannondale and Trek two-wheelers will get you to where you want to go with a safe and comfortable ride. For an out-of-town option, beat the traffic of Main Street with Island Bike. With rentals offered by the day, week, or even month, Island Bike will, without a doubt, come through for your however long your stay might be. They also provide Burley bike trailers for the kids, pets, or luggage in tow, along with attachable

September Art: Inclusive & Exceptional

Artists Association of Nantucket (AAN) is delighted to announce the opening of the 2022 10 x 10 Open Exhibition in the Cecelia Joyce & Seward Johnson Gallery, 19 Washington Street. Doors open at 10 am on Friday, September 9, and the show will be on display through Sunday, October 2. The majority of AAN exhibitions feature work solely by AAN artist members; however, this annual 10 x 10 Open Exhibition is open for participation from the entire island community. Each participant may submit up to six pieces of work. Now in its eighteen year, the 10 x 10 Open Exhibition is a popular and beloved AAN tradition, with every piece in the show measuring 10 inches by 10 inches. Work is hung in a grid-like pattern on the walls throughout the two-story gallery. “It is always a fascinating show and amazing to see the many different ways an artist approaches a 10 x 10 canvas—all the same size, yet each piece has its own individual character,” said AAN Gallery Director Peter J. Greenhalgh. “The walls are literally covered in a mosaic pattern that is not often seen in galleries. It is a favorite among our artists as well as our visitors, who come to the gallery to see the works done by their friends, neighbors, and community members.” A stone’s throw from Main Street, the award-winning Cecelia Joyce & Seward Johnson Gallery is one of the most comprehensive venues for local art, and this season the Artists Association is also exhibiting work at The Big Gallery, upstairs at 12 Straight Wharf. The Cecelia Joyce & Seward Johnson Gallery at 19 Washington Street, in the heart of Nantucket’s Cultural District, is open Tuesday through Saturday, 10 am to 2 pm & 2:30 to 5 pm, and Sunday, 10 am to 4 pm. Opening on Friday, September 16 in The Big Gallery is Master Artists, Masterworks. This is a stunning exhibition of up to 65 exceptional works by AAN member artists, and Artistic Director Robert Frazier promises some surprises! All media will be included: paintings, photographs, sculpture, and more. An opening recpetion will be held in The Big Gallery on September 17 from 5 to 7 pm. Don’t miss this extraordinary display! The Big Gallery is open Monday through Saturday from 10 am to 5 pm upstairs at 12 Straight Wharf.

Welcome to Second Summer

Page 5

by Dr. Sarah Treanor Bois, PhD

Director of Research & Education at the Linda Loring Nature Foundation Labor Day weekend is a transition period for the island. The first Monday in September marks the end of summer—droves will have left the island by then. It’s also the start of school, the beginning of fall. Shopping at the Stop and Shop will tell you it’s Autumn for sure (the Halloween candy is already out). But don’t rush to put on boots and drink pumpkin spice lattes just yet or you’ll miss one of the best “seasons” on-island. There’s a particular quality to September on Nantucket that I can’t quite name. Some still call it “Indian Sumer,” but that is a little too colonialist. A 2016 Slate article by Sarah Laskow suggested the term “Second Summer” and that suits me fine. Second Summer is when the majority of people have left the island, school has resumed, and the heat wave has ended. Warm days give way to cool evenings – perfect for sleeping with the windows open again (no need for air conditioning). The water is still warm and, thanks to sea surface warming, the warm water will likely hold on longer into fall. Second Summer is also my favorite time out in the wilds of Nantucket. September is aster season with multitudes of purple, white, and yellow blooms. Tall purple spikes of New England Blazing Star line favorite walking trails. All of those monarch caterpillars are now emerging as adults from chrysalises. The fall wildflower show is a buffet of nectar for them as they ready for the big monarch migration south. The beach plums finally ripen. They spent all summer growing and soaking up the sun’s summer rays, but it’s those still around during Second Summer that

What You Call an Islander with 3 Jobs by Robert P. Barsanti

I have books. Hundreds of books. In early September, I return to the classroom and look at all of those things that I haven’t changed, as well as all of those things that I have. The chalk board got covered with a dry erase board which is now covered by screen for my computer projector. Many of the posters are the same. Some are under glass (“Tracy’s World”) but some, like the Ghastlycrumb Tinies and the “Flensing of a Corrupt Judge” remain as they have been for over twenty years, just with more holes in the corners. The room is, of course, lined with books. In the early years of my career, all those books had a purpose. I went trolling through the used book stores of Cambridge and Boston in search of old textbooks that I could strip for parts. Ray Bradbury (over)wrote an essay about Spring Sneakers, and I swiped it, photocopied it, and then used it in class. Multiply that process by about thirty-five years, and you have the collection of books I have right now. Now that we have settled fully into the new millennium, all of those books are putrefying on shelves and in boxes. The anthologies are of their time: the modern eye would see such collections as too old, too male, too white for the modern student. And they would be right. I look at all of these spines, consider the time and expense in collecting them, the use and amusement in sharing them, and their silence in our new digital moment. I no longer teach what I once did, and not in the same manner. I can bring these old works into the twenty-first century and drop copies onto a server, but they work about as well as I can drive a Model T on Milestone Road. It can be done, but not well. Teaching, like many professions, has a time-honored masochist scale. The most honored and revered among us in the faculty lounge get the graded (and red-penned) essays back in two days and spend our afternoons and evenings grading the homework. You had to grind. We taught three or four different courses, to a hundred or more kids, whose parents would stop us in the produce section for a word. So I searched for the new readings, photocopied, created the assignments, graded them, and then put the originals into a file cabinet. That file cabinet has long since sunk beneath waves of time, and all of those hours and papers along with it. I even bought a chair for the living room so that I could watch TV and grade papers at the same time. No one should do this. The old union organizers, who brought us the weekend and Labor Day, preached the virtue of balance. “Eight hours for work, eight hours for rest, and eight hours for what you will.” What you will, in the early grinding years of my career, meant more work: more copying, more grading, more preparing. Now, at the end of my career, I lament the loss of balance. I never got my “Best Martyr” gold star. “What you will” could have meant many things besides fixing an overused and out-of-date photocopy machine. Several Christmases ago, I watched a work crew pull a full ten hours on the house across the street. The hammer guns were going, the two-by-fours were moving, and everybody hustled.

Your Help Can Bring Back the Fair by Suzanne Daub

As the season slips from summer into autumn, the frantic pace of life on Nantucket is settling into the community routine that residents know and long for during July and August. This year, two popular local events that add old-fashioned island fun to our fall are being combined into a single two-day celebration of community. The all-volunteer Nantucket Island Fair and the Nantucket Conservation Foundation’s (NCF’s) Cranberry Festival are merging to become the Nantucket Harvest Fair. Planned for October 1 and 2 from 10 am to 4 pm, this event promises to include fun elements of both. When the costs to put on the Island Fair far surpassed the revenue brought in each year, organizers realized the situation was unsustainable. This financial challenge, coupled with a lack of new volunteers, led fair organizer Abby Slosek to reach out to NCF President and CEO Cormack Collier: “I talked to him about the issues and suggested a collaboration…he seemed excited about it, and then he spoke to his staff and his board.” They all agreed that this collaboration makes sense for both organizations: financially and logistically. And this new Nantucket Harvest Fair will be a great draw for residents and visitors. Plans for events, activities, contests, displays, and demonstrations are still being finalized, but Abby Slosek and Allison Levy of NCH tell us that fairgoers can expect live music, hayrides, Gertrude’s Farmstand, local artisans, family games, local animals, and plenty of food to buy for lunch. The traditional baking contest and the NiSHA Dog Show will be back this year, as will the largest pumpkin competition. NCH staff will demonstrate their cranberry harvest methods. According to NCF Director of Land Management Nick Larrabee, NCF has switched

Nantucket’s First, & Perhaps Only, Duel

September 1-28, 2022

Page 9

Gasp! A duel on Nantucket! And the frustrating thing is, we haven’t been able to discover many details. Was it a duel of pistols, swords, fisticuffs, or what? And what were the exact reasons for the disagreement that led to the duel? “Sir! You have dishonored the name of the fair lady…” or “How dare you sully my good name, linked as it is with the fair lady’s…” or maybe “Whichever of us winds, that lucky gentleman will win the hand of…” But it was a duel over a young woman of the island, nonetheless. How did this information come into our hands? It was circuitous, to be sure. It all started with a Nantucket Historical Association Oral History project interview with 94year-young Bertha Chase Gardiner, who imparted many fascinating stories of old Nantucket. Her daughter, “Gigi” Salisbury, had set up the interview, and that’s how two new friends were made. About a week after the interview, Gigi called to say, “Hey—you’re interested in strange little tidbits of Nantucket information, aren’t you? Well, while I was doing some historical research in the Foulger Museum today, I came across some really intriguing diary entries of Eliza Mitchell. It seems a forebear of Mother’s and mine, George C. Chase, actually took part in a duel, right here on the island!” Of course she told me how to find Eliza Mitchell’s diaries, carefully protected in the Foulger, and of course I looked the affair up. I found that Eliza, fourth wife of David Mitchell, was a lifetime resident of the island. Born in 1808, she filled up many, many journals with memories and accounts from her childhood, a number of them from stories told her in her youth by B. Franklin Folger. The diary containing the story of the duel was labeled “Account #252, Reminiscences 18941896.” This #252 may have been her last journal, because she died in 1896. But she left behind many words about the island’s day-to-day occurrences, including many facts of historical significance. And while she did it “to furnish amusement,” her accounts help us understand what the island must have been like in the long-ago. continued on page 11

Nantucket Duel from page 9

Here’s what she had to say about the duel, compleat with unfamiliar Capitalizations, abreviat’ns, misplaced apostrophes’ (Capt.’) & symbols, and any number of marks on the page that could have been commas, periods, or even the telltale scratch of a pen resting while its wielder paused to think a bit… It is a story about an incident in the lives of George C. Chase (1790-1878) and one John Heath, about whom is known frustratingly little. One would guess he was in his mad, carefree youth, and that he had ventured to the fair island of Nantucket as one lap in his quest to see the world; he worked, apparently, in a store here during and after the “duel over the attentions of Judith Gardner.” George apparently ceased his attentions to Judith after the duel, and later married someone else (sigh). Following is Eliza W. Mitchell’s account of the affair: “When I was very young I hard talk of a Duel, and I asked what it meant & so it left an impression with me. ________________ ∑ _______________ “Capt’ Gerard Gardner who formerly lived on Fair Street, in the house unoccupied now. But Capt. Fredrick [sic] Chase was about the last owner who liv’d there until his death. “Cap’t Gardner’s oldest Daughter was named Judith, and she was quite a Dame, and though not call’d handsome, was considerably sought after by the young Gentleman [sic], especially strangers.” [Question: In this case, could “strangers” have meant simply newcomers to the island or, as Nantucketers used to say, someone from that other island, Martha’s Vineyard? Could it be that Judith, for some reason, was more appealing to those who did not know her well—that her charms wore somewhat thing after a time? Was she somewhat casual in bestowing her attentions and interest? Why was it that she should be sought after primarily by strangers? And how did George get mixed up in all this?] “About that time George J [?] Baker had opened a Store, and had a young man named John Heath as Clerk. And he become somewhat interested in Miss Gardner very much to the disgust of George Chase, son of Capt’ Peter Chase.[captain of the ship Criterion, which spent a lot of time seeking whales in the Fijis], who years continued on page 25

trail-a-bikes, as well as single and double baby joggers. As with most shops on island they also provide sales, tune-ups, and repairs. With more than 35 miles of dedicated bike paths 30 miles out to sea, a ride from Cook’s Cycles can also get you to all the points beyond. Choose from 8speed cruisers made for pavement or something else for all the sandy streets and sideroads you might encounter on your journey. Every summer season, Cook’s boasts a new fleet of wheels along with a full fleet of electric assist bicycles. You can also head next door to Cook’s Cafe for lunch to go before you head off. Bike Shares have been growing in popularity in places across the country, and in recent years Nantucket has found its own offering with Sandy Pedals. Their bikes are available to use at your ease and convenience, ready to pick up from specific spots across the island, 365 days a year. With 50 easily accessible, affordable, short term rentals to find wherever you might need one, you’ll never be without transportation. Their app and website (sandypedalsbikes.com) are both easy to use and will take the guesswork out of getting on your way. For a list of island bicycle shops, be sure to visit bike.nantucket.net There are countless memorable rides to head out on this September, but it never hurts to have a guide. Jim Olney, avid cyclist and Land Use Manager at the Nantucket Conservation Foundation (NCF), has a couple of tours in store for the month of September. The first is being held on September 6 and is an awesome tour of the Middle Moors. “We ride at a pace depending on the crowd,” Jim explained, “and we always play it by ear. I spend time with the group talking about ongoing projects, endangered species, and other interesting aspects related to the NCF.” With 14 years of experience at Young’s Bicycle and an endless interest in Nantucket’s wild side, Jim is the ideal guide. A long time lover and avid user of all of NCF’s many properties, he wanted to do his part to support this island institution and to help visitors and residents see what there is to see. Both bike tours are continued on page 13

free and open to the public, but space will fill fast so be sure to get on board. Head to nantucketconservation.org/event/ to register. Beyond these, there are countless trips of all measure to take with riders of all abilities. Nantucket is fairly flat and easy to traverse, making even the long hauls approachable for many. The ride to Siasconset might seem daunting (it’s over 6 miles from town), but once there you can spend the day dining, swimming, and seeing the unique sights the eastern end of the island has to offer. And the NRTA shuttle, should you decide to take that route home, carries bicycles. The ride to Madaket is another long ride (5.462 miles from town), but once there you’ll have access to pristine beaches and gorgeous sunsets. For a shorter ride from town (just a little over 2 miles), you might hop on the Surfside bike path and take it down to one of the most beautiful beaches on-island. Surfside Beach is known to be a hot-spot, but September definitely slows things down. Bring your towels, sunscreen, and plenty of water, but you can buy food at The Surfside Beach Shack. At this beach you’ll find bathrooms, changing rooms, and fresh-water showers for when you’re ready to head home. For more Nantucket bicycle paths, details on water stations, tips on biking Nantucket, and safety reminders, visit Bike.Nantucket.net Get out there in the coming weeks and see this beautiful island from a different perspective. Things fly by too quickly looking out a car window, and September is a great time to appreciate what really matters. We promise you won’t miss a thing.

Islander with 3 Jobs from page 7

At first, I respected the grind. Here they were, focussed and active, on a day nobody expected them to be working. The best compliment you can give an islander was “you should see how hard they work.” Nantucketers have long been hustlers, grinders, and masochists: the old joke goes “What do you call a Nantucketer with three jobs? Lazy.” Now, I question who sent them out there on Christmas Day, and I wonder why they went. Did a contractor have a time table and an agenda, with an electrician and a plumber due by New Year’s and a lawyer on the phone? Did the crew have several other houses they were working on? Did they need the money? Is this truly what they will? Grinding wears you down, no matter how focused and strong you are. Every grindstone eventually wears smooth. In the new millennium, the young are asking questions. They want to know why they should be diagramming sentences, why they have to read Lord of the Flies, and why “what you will” became “what the boss will.” They have dropped “the idea of going above and beyond.” To them, work is no longer the vocation that will encompass all your hopes and dreams. Instead, it is the day job that allows the true work to flourish. God did not call you to a vocation at Rockland Savings or Stop and Shop. He called you to play the banjo. I am a teacher. For most of my career, I hadn’t thought that sentence would be quite as limiting as it sounds right now. What else am I? What else could I have been? Nantucket demands hustle. The more houses you can take care of, the more money you make. The more jobs you can work, the more useful you are. You bartend at lunch, wait at dinner, and pick up a late night shift if there is one available. They told me “The more you work, the more likely you can afford to live out here.” I once thought of Nantucket as a vocation. You had to sacrifice your time, your family, and your basement to stay out here. If you answered that windy call, you got to pull scallops out of the harbor, you got to watch the storms build, hit, and pass over, you got to watch the moors change color under a bright blue sky. But if you did, you could stand on the dock in September and watch the boat leave. But maybe I got that wrong.

reap the rewards of the sweet-tart fruit. With our maritime climate, the growing season is always a week or two later than the mainland. That makes for a perfect Second Summer to botanize and take nature walks. Second Summer can also mean a chance to do summer right, or at least something other than what you were able to squeeze into August. What beach did you miss visiting? Need to catch one more wave this season? Want to get an ice cream cone after dinner without a line? Go for a sunset paddle on a pond? There’s time during Second Summer. We can take the dogs to the beach again for a swim without risk of sandingup someone’s beach blanket. Since the sun sets a little earlier, we can have a beach picnic for dinner on a Friday night and still get the kids to bed at a normal time. And the fishing—well, September fishing is fantastic. Right now, boaters and beach anglers alike are going for the Second Summer grand slam—bluefish, striped bass, bonito, and false albacore. Even if you can only be a weekend-warrior now that school has started, the pressure of summer has waned, and it’s like we have permission again to slow down and cast another line. September is also when the Nantucket Angler’s Club hosts the Inshore Classic Fishing tournament —open to everyone, this fun, friendly competition highlights the fall fishing show. September is also an exceptional time for birding on Nantucket. Thirty miles out to sea makes us a great stopover for migrants. Early fall storms can also bring unusual birds from afar—a treasure for local birders adding to life-lists. Never gone birding before? Did you even know “bird” could be a verb? Second Summer is a great time to pick up something new. There are still weekly bird walks at the Linda Loring Nature Foundation, several offered by Maria Mitchell Association, and nature excursions with other conservation groups. I’ve heard from friends who live on the eastern side of the island that Sconset has been extra busy this summer. Claudette’s and the ‘Sconset Market have been destinations for bikers all season. Well, the cooler temperatures mean that now is the time to take along bike ride and enjoy the fresh September breezes. The continued on page 19

Second Summer

Page 19

KATHERINE GROVER

from page 16

Sconset Market is open until September 15 and Claudette’s is usually open until October, so there’s still time! Take a stroll along the Bluff Walk and look for whales off the east shore. As someone who dabbles in gardening, I feel like Second Summer is a chance to redeem myself for neglecting my raised beds for the past month. There’s still enough growing season for a fall crop of lettuce, carrots, beets, and other cold crops. I may have barely had the time to water in July and August, but now I can tend to my beds with more care. Here’s hoping for a fall bounty. I don’t mean to say that no one is busy in the fall. It’s more like the frantic pace of summer has waned and we can breathe a little deeper. The weather is still ideal and, if you’re lucky enough to still be on Nantucket, it feels like the island is your oyster. You may actually get a dinner reservation, a parking space, or a spot on your favorite beach. I’m going to do my best to take a breath, a walk, cast a line, and immerse myself in Second Summer.

Nantucket Duel from page 11

after became father of Miss Minnie Chase, Mrs. Sandford Kingsley and several more. Well, the two young men had some unpleasant words, and in their excitement proposed a Duel. And they were quite earner and so it was arranged that it should take place at a point call’d Newtown Gate.” [Question: Why why oh why was George “disgusted”? Was it because, as John Heath’s farewell poem to the young ladies of Nantucket—which you’ll see anon— indicates, something of a bounder with the young women? Note: The Newtown Gate was once located near where the Five Corners is now—erected to keep browsing sheep out of the town, the gate kept moving outward as the town expanded; there seems to be no trace of it today.] “So they each chose seconds & among them was Miss Gardner’s father, & I have been told, that it was something so new, & unheard of here, that pretty much all the men, and boys, ran to witness the affair.” [Question: Was Miss Gardner’s father a second for George or for John? I mean, how could Eliza have omitted so vital a piece of information, anyway? If he was John’s second, that meant he would have possibly approved of John as a suitor; if he was George’s, perhaps he was seeking paternal vengeance… Was Miss Gardner to be considered a “wronged woman”? Or was she simply loved by both the young men? And finally, how come none of Nantucket’s independent-minded women attended the fracas?] “Well, they fought hard, and Capt’ Gardner, all the time probably mean that no serious harm should come to either of them (young men) and he well knew Mr. Chases was very quick tempered [AHA!], So when things began to wear rather a grave aspect, step’d between them, George Chase, without a moments pause struck Captain Gardner, which caused great commotion, then others hastened to the scene, and separated them, and after the two became a little calmed down, it was proposed that all should be…[Frustratingly, the next words are difficult to read; the look like “Duels had there” but probably was meant to indicate that pressure was on the young men to cease their battle posthaste.] “So after a time the crowd dispersed, and all went their different ways, and when George Chase went home, he found his father in much distress, as new had been brought that

Your Help Can Bring Back the Island Fair from page 8

to a dry harvest “because of the poor yields that organic growing gives us. We no longer grow enough berries to justify the expenses involved with wet picking. Every berry we grow now stays on the island for the local community.” Entries to Gertrude’s Farmstand competition, which includes homegrown flowers and vegetables, crafts, baked goods using cranberries, and the giant pumpkins, must be brought to the Harvest Fair Community Tent no later than 1 pm on Saturday, October 1 to be judged that afternoon. New events planned for the Harvest Fair include a Hot Pepper Eating Contest: those willing to test their “firebreathing” skills will have to sign up at least 30 minutes prior to that event. Look for signs at Milestone Bog that list times of the scheduled events. Even with the combined efforts, many volunteers are still needed before the event for preparation, during the event, and after it. In addition to the fun and satisfaction of bringing a new island event to fruition, volunteers will be give free entry and parking as long as they work a 2-hour shift. There is a list of volunteer shifts along with a sign-up option at signupgenius.com/go/508094aada92ba4f49-2022. Any questions about volunteering or becoming a vendor or a sponsor can be directed to nantucketharvestfair@gmail.com. “This is our community event put on BY community members FOR the community,” said Slosek.

“Help us out, lend a hand, and let’s bring the fun back! We are really excited to have the support of NCF. There’s a little nostalgia about Tom Nevers, but to have the help is a relief.” “We are absolutely thrilled to be partnering with Island Fair,” added NCF’s Allison Levy, “the history of the fair, the history of growing cranberries…it just makes sense. It brings our [NCF] event from one day to two days, and we are excited about the new elements. The Nantucket Harvest Fair will be held rain or shine at the Milestone Bogs, with entrance at 220 Milestone Road. The entry fees will be $25 per car (with plenty of parking) or $10 pp for those who walk or bike ($5 for walkers and bikers under age 14).

Nantucket Duel from page 25

he, George, had struck Capt. Gardner who was a very intimate friend of the family. [Which fact might mean that young George was merely upholding the honor of a family friend.] So, George finally consented to go, & ask pardon of Capt. Gardner, when he humbly told him how sorry he was, Capt. Gardner only laughed, & said I did not care a bit.” [Question: Did George strike Capt. Gardner because he was incensed that the man interfered, or because he was thought to be taking Heath’s part, or was it simply an accident that occurred because the Captain stepped too hastily into the way of two furious young men? Again, we wonder with what weapons they were dueling? Indeed, it may have been a very courageous thing for Capt. Gardner to so step in, perhaps at the risk of his life. On the other hands, perhaps he just caught a right hook intended for John Heath…] “So the matter ended, and Miss Gardner, remained single during life, and jilted [there is some writing over on the first letter of this word, which at first was written with a “g.”], until they removed from our Island, her three Sisters all married and now, all are dead, and George [sic—Eliza meant John] Heath, after paying attention to Miss Lydia Hussey, who was quite a Bell [sic—we assume EWM didn’t mean a dingdong] at that time, returned to Boston, & never returned. Miss Hussey left of [off] her gaity, and become a Methodist, though her Parents, were always Quakers.” “She married [name not clear] Eldridge and after his death, married a Mr. Truesdell, & died in New

But what happened to poor Judith, who, “though not called handsome,” had been sought after by strangers? Hmmmm? Here is an Untold Story of Shattering Significance. What happened to Judith?] ________________ ∑ _______________ [That symbol above is what Eliza used to signify a change in thought.] “I found some lines Mr Heath left, on leaving Nantucket. Adieu, Adieu, Ye Girl Adieu, a long farewell I bid to you / While I to Boston Gang, Some twelve months hence I may again/ Visit your Island from the Main, To ease a heart felt pang, / But should I ne’er return again, Oh how my soul, is racked with pain / to think that such can be, Some happier one than I by jove, / Will then possess my Lydia’s love. Farewell poor Heath to thee. [AHA again! Maybe Mistress Lydia broke it off with the callow Heath, not the other way ‘round, recognizing what a scoundrel he was—or perhaps having received a quiet earful from Mistress Judith or a dire warning from Lydia’s parents.] Eliza Mitchell concludes with the following: “All, in days long since past. And all are gone to their long rest. E.W.M”’ So that’s the story—or, rather, part of the story— of Nantucket’s first and only recorded duel…

In all of our travels, there are only a few restaurants we’ve come across that combine fine dining and the hospitality of home. These places of picture-perfect calm and comfort are hard to come by and should be treasured and remembered. The Chanticleer is one such restaurant—an oasis of fine dining. For more than a 100 years, this much loved establishment has been serving the village of ’Sconset and the Island of Nantucket. Originally opened as a small tea house at the turn of the century, The Chanticleer is now one of the most sought after restaurants on- and off-island. Relaxing, refined, and romantic, it is a most suitable spot for occasions of all kinds. Though Siasconset is just eight miles from town, it feels like an entirely different island. It’s slower and sleepier in all the right ways, with everything you need within reach. Blending right in with the climbing roses and high hedges on New Street sits our destination. We were lucky enough to score a table in their airy front garden with its famous colorful carousel horse. The peak of the roses that bloom profusely over the restaurant has passed, but the garden is still lush and carefully tended. Chanticleer’s Executive Chef is the legendary Jeff Worster. He focuses on only the best seasonal ingredients while remaining true to classic techniques and fantastic fusions of flavor. His cuisine wanders across the globe while remaining true to his island home and honoring what’s at hand. Partner Susan Handy insures all runs smoothly and that the Judith Point Bluefish Pate

Yellowfin Tuna Tartar service lives up to the high expectations of this fine dining establishment. We started our lunch with a constant summer special on Nantucket: Bluefish. The Judith Point Bluefish Pate is a delicious and shareable starter. Lightly smoked over alderwood, it’s served cool and the mild ocean element is complimented by a generous portion of thick-cut russet potato chips. Summer has flown by, but all good things must come to an end. There is certainly a silver lining: late summer vegetables. The Chiogga Beet Salad (cover photo) celebrates the summer sunshine and coming change of season with perfect pink beets that are as mild as they are marvelous. A healthy wedge of blue cheese accentuates the earthy element, while sweet, ripe raspberries bring out a fruitier side. The crunch from maple walnuts brings both elements together. On the richer side of starters is the Lemon-Garlic Roast Chicken Salad. Prepared on toast in the style of Hawaii, with the crunch of macadamia nuts and sweet Maui pineapple. The chef’s light curry mayonnaise brings those two together and the Spam cracklins on top bring a salty spark to it all. The beer-battered onion rings above it all were simply a special light, crisp treat. Our favorite first was Chef Jeff Worster’s Yellowfin Tuna Tartare. The ruby red fish is mixed with Lao Gan Ma, an outstanding sort of saucy spread made with aged chilis and crisp onions along with Weak Knees Sriracha, a wellknown sweet and spicy condiment made by hand in New York. The tuna is served alongside crisp yet tender scallion pancakes and decked out with a crisp Japanese cucumber salad, creamy avocado, and lime. It was the most Lemon-Garlic Roast Chicken Salad

delightful cooling appetizer for a warm afternoon. An ideal setting for events of all kinds, The Chanticleer will welcome you for lunch or dinner in their verdant front garden, in their handsomely clubby Grill Room, in their spacious main dining room, or on their cheery “Porch,” that overlooks the chef’s herb garden. We can’t imagine a better venue for weddings, parties, and celebrations of all sizes. Chef Worster’s lunch menu Confit de Canard ranges from light and easy to rich and filling, all in generous portions, and you’ll find a few similar offerings on the dinner menu. You won’t miss a thing no matter the time of day, and that was obvious up front when were presented with the Confit de Canard. A sublimely succulent crisp-skinned duck leg and thigh was served alongside asparagus, cauliflower, and leek risotto with a bordelaise sauce, luxurious and delicious, with dry red wine, bone marrow, butter, shallots and demi-glace. When you’re really hankering and hungry for lunch, go for the New Zealand Lamb Bolognese. Rich, hot, and hearty, this luncheon entree will keep you going all day with both chunks and ground lamb along with New Zealand Lamb Bolognese Marquez sausage, a lamb sausage originally from North Africa. It’s all simmered for hours with a mirepoix of vegetables, San Marzano tomatoes, and a mix of 21 secret herbs and spices. The final product is tossed with orecchiette pasta, arugula, and plenty of Pecorino Romano alongside to mix in as you desire. Tomato season is in full swing, so be sure to take advantage of the Maine Lobster BLT Style. Served open-faced on buttered toasted brioche, Maine Lobster - BLT Style

it’s piled high with applewood smoked bacon, arugula, juicy heirloom tomato, and, of course, sweet, succulent lobster. The lemon mayonnaise brightens every bite and the sweet potato tots add a delightfully fun and crispy contrast. One of the best dishes we’ve had this Fresh Catch entire summer was Chef Worster’s Fresh Catch. A menu option that rotates regularly, we lucked out with salmon. Pan-seared and sublimely moist, it was presented atop pommes puree and surrounded with an array of freshly harvested vegetables: al dente zucchini, summer squash, sweet cherry tomatoes, and nice pops of salt from green Calvestrano olives. A sweet, spicy, slightly puckery sauce made with tobacco, parsley, and lemon butter tied it all together. Though we all arrived famished, this mighty and marvelous meal still left us longing for a sweet finish. Of six superb sounding options, we chose two to share.

Lemon Tart Their Lemon Tart is tangy yet buttery and bold, bursting with more fresh raspberries and sauce framboise. Served parfait-style in a sundae glass, Marco Pierre White’s Eton Mess was a classic delight on every level. Layers of strawberries, crushed meringue, and gelato made certain every bite revealed something new, and there was nary a nibble left behind. Cozy yet elegant, relaxed yet refined, we cannot wait to revisit this rare island treat. Everything about our leisurely lunch was perfect, and we look forward to repeating the experience. The Chanticleer is making marvelous food through Columbus Day, so escape to the east side of the island and to the oasis that is Chanticleer while you can.

Leave only footprints...

Nantucket has some of the most beautiful and pristine beaches in the world. Please respect Nantucket’s fragile environment and the beauty of our island. Clean up your litter, respect private property, and use only designated entry points. In areas where dune reclaimation is taking place, please do not cross the rope or fence barriers protecting the dunes.

BEACH SAFETY •Learn to swim. If you can’t swim an overhead stroke for at least 15 minutes you should not be in the ocean. •Never swim alone. Always swim with a buddy, and swim near a lifeguard whenever possible. •Stay out of the “surf zone” where the waves break at the shoreline. Waves are at their greatest force here, and even a small wave can lift you up and throw you headfirst into the sand. •Never run from the beach into the water and dive headfirst into the waves. Sandbars that cannot be seen from the surface may be present and/or the water may be too shallow. •Don’t jump or dive into the water from a pier or rock jetty. From a pier or jetty, water appears much deeper than it really is. What looks like 10 or 20 feet of water may only be 2 to 3 feet deep. Diving in could be fatal. The same applies for jumping headfirst into the ocean or a wave from a surfboard – don’t do it! It’s not a risk worth taking. •If you are body surfing or boogie boarding, always keep your arms out in front of you to protect your head and neck. •A rip current will pull you away from the shore, but it will not pull you under. If you’re caught in a rip current, do not swim toward the shore! Instead, swim parallel to the shore, until you’re out of the rip current. Then, swim in to shore. •Never drink alcohol or use drugs at the beach. It clouds your ability to make wise decisions, and that could be fatal! •Take direction from lifeguards at all times.
