Today's post will be short on text but full of pictures! Back in August my friends surprised me with tickets for Gatsby on the Isles for my bachelorette party. We joined some fellow vintage fans from the GBVS, hopped on a ferry boat and headed out to Star Island for a 1920s themed adventure.
The history of the island, the second largest of nine rocky islands ten miles southeast of the mouth of the Piscataqua River, goes back hundreds of years. The Star Island Corporation has owned and operated Star Island since 1916. The Oceanic House is the largest structure on Star Island and has long served as a place of retreat.

Warning. Silly things happen when these girls and I get together!
I wore the dress I made for the 1920s Downton Abby event last year. It's the dress I got engaged in so it seemed fitting to wear again for the bachelorette party.
Erin borrowed the same dress my friend Jen wore for the Roaring 20s Lawn Party.
At the end of the day we boarded the ferry once more. A few people stayed behind at the hotel but they came to the dock to see us off.
|The ferry ride back. It was much warmer then the ride to the island in the morning!|
It was a wonderful day!
