Steps Beach is on the north shore of Nantucket. I like it because it’s not crowded. It is beautiful there. I’ve always enjoyed walking along the shoreline with bare feet, close enough that the waves rush over them. It’s so peaceful — the sounds of seagulls and the waves. I’ve learned that just because I’m one of the only ones there, the seagulls are sneaky — I caught one trying to get into my backpack to steal my lunch.
