My Weekend

This weekend we traveled to Martha's Vineyard for a lovely wedding. It was a bit of a whirlwind trip, that saw us driving from New York on Friday afternoon and coming home on Sunday morning (five+ hour trips each way). That left us with only a few hours on Saturday to explore the Vineyard.

We had heard that the best way to explore the island is by bike but boy am I glad we had the car. The island is so much bigger than I could have imagined and we wouldn't have gotten very far in the time we had to see the sights.

Martha's Vineyard is such a great place, the water, the wildlife (we saw two deer hop over the road) and the rustic bush land. I especially loved all the shingled and weatherboard homes. There were some seriously beautiful homes on the island. Oh, and the seafood, I can't forget about the seafood!

Here are some photos from our weekend...

A gorgeous lighthouse

The houses and inns were some of the cutest I have seen

And so many flags, American's are so patriotic

It was a great weekend, we met some great people and enjoyed our day exploring the Vineyard. Congratulations to Megan and Alex and thanks for including us in your special day.

What did you get up to over the weekend?
