Lucky me spent last weekend visiting my fabulously talented friend Merrill Strange on Nantucket. When Merrill is not busy working on her beautiful hand painted ceramics, she likes to pack a walk, a bike ride, a swim and a tennis game into every day. I've never been so happy I don't play tennis - there is no way I could keep up. We walked, talked, rode bikes to Sconset (and to Surfside, Madaket and Steps beach), swam, drank a little wine, and ate a lot of delicious seafood and fresh strawberries. I called her Miraval Merrill. Read full note here.
