Spotted: NYT Peter Baker in Nantucket

NYT reporter Peter Baker was spotted late last week on his laptop at The Westmoor Club in Nantucket. It’s an upscale members-only tennis and pool club known as the “premier private club of Nantucket.” Special attractions include yachting, a state-of-the-art spa and croquet. The website says the club has “handsome dining rooms.”

Lucky dog!

“Yes, up in Nantucket, blissfully free of heat, humidity and political campaigns,” Baker wrote FBDC when we asked him about it. “A great place to get away before the conventions and the final sprint to election day.”

Psst… another journalist in Nantucket over the weekend was HuffPost-AOL Editor-in-Chief Arianna Huffington, who announced over Twitter on Saturday that she was lunching there. Her table is pictured above.
