Pocomo Beach

The day I created this image I was fortunate to be exploring the island with good friend and wife to my oldest friend, Janet. Having lived on the island for many summers I'd never experienced this part of Nantucket.

On a high rise of land looking back across the harbor towards town sits Pocomo. Aptly named by the Wampanoags as “a round fishing place,” Pocomo faces the shellfish-friendly waters of the upper harbor on two sides. With most homes located away from the road, and down long, private driveways, it's a perfect location for restful walks on isolated beaches. Rural, remote, and relaxed, Pocomo is distinctly Nantucket.
