On our last day of vacation, Nate and I drove to Falmouth to take the Island Queen ferry from Cape Cod to the island of Martha’s Vineyard.
The ride over was about 25 minutes long…
…and although Nate says it was probably a tube being pulled, I’m fairly certain that we even caught a glimpse of Jaws chasing a boat!
Hello, Martha’s Vineyard!
Once on the island, Nate and I decided to take a little drive to do some exploring…
Actually a 45 mile drive. On a moped.
Yeahhh, we did get a little achey after about the first 30 miles. 😉 But still, so worth it.
We drove by beaches, light-houses,
and quaint little towns with adorable shops.
The wind in my face. The sunshine.
Blue waves lapping at the ocean beside us. Then fields of horses, farmland, and vine-covered stone-walls. My arms wrapped around Nate. It was a page out of my favorite book or a scene from my favorite movie.
But it was all real…. right down to this lovely footwear.
(Apparently, it’s a government law that you can’t wear open-toed shoes while riding mopeds on the island). So the rental company lent me these beauties for the day, since I showed up in flip-flops.
Honestly, between these shoes and the helmet, Nate couldn’t keep his eyes off me.
But then he saw this view and I most certainly had competition. 😉 He declared it one of the most beautiful spots he had ever been to.
The Gay Head cliffs of Aquinnah were breathtaking…
So lush green, and brilliant blue.
We contemplated changing our dream of becoming hat-makers in the Caribbean (don’t ask) and becoming tent-makers on Martha’s Vineyard. It doesn’t really matter that we can’t make hats or tents. That’s why it’s a dream, after all. (Definitely, Aquinnah is worth visiting if you’re a first-time visitor to Martha’s Vineyard. Absolutely gorgeous!!! And the seafood shack we ate at served up a delicious lobster roll too!).
But we decided that we would miss our little home in the country, the end. So we made our way back to the dock for a wave ‘goodbye’… and icecream at the Big Dipper IceCream.
Hmmm, days don’t get better than this. 🙂
What’s one of the most beautiful places you have ever visited?
