Martha's Vineyard

While on our honeymoon five years ago it was recommended to us by our B&B owner that Nantucket is a much better choice for visiting than Martha's Vineyard. So that is where we went. This year we thought we'd visit Martha's Vineyard, and unfortunately learned how true it is - Nantucket is much better due to the lighthouses, remote beaches, has less traffic, is smaller and more quaint, etc. - but we still had a good time, despite the rainy weather. A wonderful surprise was in store for us too, which I will get to later...

From Plymouth, we drove to Woods Hole, MA, which is on Cape Cod, to take a ferry to Martha's Vineyard. It was 45 min long, and thankfully all indoor seating because it was raining the whole way. I was praying that the rain would stop by the time we got there, and it did! It remained overcast and at times misty, but no hard rain the rest of the day.

Our happy ferry ride:

We took a bus tour which was supposed to be 2 1/2 hours, and ended up being about 4! Gage charmed all of the passengers, who in turn kept him entertained and happy too. We sure don't go unnoticed these days with our little Charmer with us!

Gage hamming it up with some adoring passengers on the tour bus:

Quaint Martha's Vineyard cottages:

Gayhead cliffs and lighthouse: (The most beautiful view on the tour. Too bad it was such a yucky day!)

During a stop on the tour we were walking around when Craig spotted a poster announcing a very special, free concert, later that day... Can you guess who it possibly may have been?? This concert was so coincidental and so special it needs its own post, which is coming soon! :)
