Martha's Vineyard

We knew while we were up in that neck of the woods that we wanted to visit Cape Cod.  We did a little research and decided to make our way to Martha's Vineyard, which is an island off the cape.  It takes a little bit to get to.  After driving up and making our way to the port at Woods Hole we boarded the ferry to get over to Martha's Vineyeard.  Charlotte enjoyed the ferry ride.  It was about 45 minutes or so and she had room to walk about and play some.

The ferry port authority drops at Vineyard Haven.  Martha's Vineyard is a larger island than I thought before I started looking into what to do there.  We opted not to take our car on the ferry for cost reasons and decided to mostly hang in Vineyard Haven.

There were definitely some cute shops and quaint streets...

...but over all it just wasn't the season to be in Martha's Vineyard.  We were told there would be a weekender crowd and that is why we opted to go on Sunday and there were definitely more people on the ferry ride home but I have no idea what they did all day?!?!

We did have lunch and Char colored her nose....

And on the ferry home we experienced the most beautiful sunset I have ever seen.  It had been rainy and gloomy all day so this was quite the site to see. 

The drive home got a little long to say the least.  There was some road construction and when all the signs say "avoid Cape traffic" we started to realize why some people would want to!  Needless to say this is Charlotte when we got back tot he hotel after going way to long without a diaper change!  YIKES!

Even though it wasn't everything we had envisioned, we had a great time.  It was wonderful to get to see this part of New England and we had an adventurous day.
