Nantucket Spirits

  This past week while inspecting homes on Nantucket for insurance updates I came across this "Thai Spirit House" in a tree in the front yard. The owners of this property besides living on Nantucket also have a boat that they use to "sail the seven seas". Spirit houses are used to house spirits so that they are happy and don't cause trouble for the inhabitants of the land nearby. Yes, even spirits don't like to be homeless. This 2 story spirit house has a ladder from the ground to the house as well as a ladder to the upper spirit house levels. There is also a little elephant out front so the spirits can travel around the island if they so choose.
