Martha's Vineyard I

Last week, my grandma and I visited Martha's Vineyard. I'd never been there before, so I was excited as we headed to the Cape (one of my favorite places! We rented a house there in '00 for a family reunion and it was right across the street from the ocean...bliss, I tell you!). I love anything beach- (and ocean-) related and it was a sunny, beautiful day.

As it ended up, I had a hard time actually enjoying the island becuase...well, you know if you read this blog regularly. Nevertheless, I tried! As it ended up, Gma and I took a bus tour- awesome for me because I didn't have to act like I was in the mood to play tourist!

The beginning of our journey- Gma and I loaded onto a huge ferry for a 45 minute ride to the island. It was extremely windy, so we ended up eating our bagged lunch inside instead of on top like we'd planned!

I pretty much decided this is my dream house- because look at the views!!

This seagull followed the ferry for a long time as we floated across the ocean

During the bus tour, we got lots of ocean views

We found a gas tank advertising gas for 49c!!

A historic tree on the island- apparently it's called Humphrey's Tree

This police station was the schoolhouse for years- not many students, obviously!

It's just so beautiful there!

I spotted this weathervane on top of a house- thought it was appropriate!
