Oct 1, 2017 - Martha's Vineyard

Took the ferry to Martha’s Vineyard today. Had to park about 5 miles away. They shuttle you to the ferry and you have to pay $13 to park. Once we were on the island we bought and all day bus pass and headed out to see the island. We stopped at one of the beaches and walked in the sand and Atlantic Ocean. The water was cold and the sand is not as fine as ours. We did not get to see as much as we would have liked but that seems to be the story of this trip. Made our way to Vineyard Have and tried to find somewhere to have dinner and most...

Aug 1, 2010 - Martha's Vineyard 3 nights

Martha's Vineyard is a great place to live and/or visit. When we arrived we had to take a mooring ball outside the harbor in Vineyard Haven because they were booked up. These were the rockingest & rollingest couple of nights we have spent thus far ... worse that Newport Marina in Jersey City on the Hudson with all the ferry traffic at rush hour on a windy day. And that says a lot! An aside - Roger and I suffer the phenomenon that happens to sailors when they have been at sea for a long time and have their "sea legs", and then they go...

Sep 26, 2007 - Martha's Vineyard

Today Barb and I spent all day on Martha's Vineyard. We left at 8:30 to drive to Woods Hole, where we parked in the Steamship Authority's parking lot. A free shuttle bus took us to the dock to catch the ferry to Vineyard Haven on Martha's Vineyard. The trip across Nantucket Sound took about 45 minutes and was smoother than we had expected. We used Martha's Vineyard Transit Authority (VTA) buses to take us to the various towns and villages. The price certainly was right: only $3 for the entire day. Our first destination was Menemsha, a...

Oct 19, 2006 - Falmouth, Massachusetts

Oct.19/06 This morning we drove to Cape Cod. We stopped in Falmouth at the Elks Lodge to park the 5th wheel. In the afternoon we drove around downtown Falmouth. We saw a bay with nice fall colors so went to take a picture, as we got close there was a green heron sitting on a branch of a tree. Then we carried on to Woods Hole to look around, a nice harbour spot and we found a café with internet.

Sep 17, 2006 - New York City to Martha's Vineyard, MN

We cruised into Martha's Vineyard early this morning. They were calling for tenders before 8:00. We decided to have a leisurely breakfast and wait until the last of the tenders nos. had been called and then go ashore. The tenders go into the Oak Bluffs, which is a Victorian-era summer resort with its gingerbread cottages and Ocean Front Park. There are four main towns on the island. The other three are: -Vineyard Haven - the island's picturesque center of commerce, more commonly known as the year-round town on the island and where most...

May 17, 2006 - Cape and family time

Got back here to the Cape the afternoon of May 8th. We're staying at Bayview Campground - nice, wooded site (internet satellite dish is practically in the road!), and there are very few people here because of the rainy, cold Cape spring weather. Have gotten some hugs and kisses from some of the grandchildren (more to come) - will need to stock up on them, since we won't be back this way for a year. Looking forward to a few weeks of visiting with family and friends, unloading the RV of those things we found we didn't use, and preparing for...
