Our Trip to New England: Martha's Vineyard Part 1

Woops. This post was definitely meant for earlier this week and then I overloaded it with photos so I kind of crashed my blog. Here we go again! I thought I may share some of my favorite memories of Martha's Vineyard! This will have to be in a series of posts because we saw so many neat things.

Highlights include: The Alpaca Farm, dinner at The Atlantic Fish & Chop House, the failed Vespa excursion(hilarious story), Aquinnah Cliffs & Gay Head Light House, and meandering around Oak Bluffs, Vinyard Haven, and Edgartown. I must say that the fish markets in Menemsha made for an interesting lunch spot, and while we never made it out to sail on a huge boat, I think the perfect weather and amazing seafood made up for it. Let's start with the beginning...

Monday morning we left Boston bright and early to get over to the airport for the Peter Pan busline to Woods Hole. Much to our dismay, our bus was cancelled and pushed back another two hours. Womp womp...A couple of hours later, we FINALLY arrived to Woods Hole, in time for the Ferry over to Oak Bluffs. Hello, dream trip! I was so excited, especially once we started to approach the Vineyard:

Once we arrived, we caught the bus to scoot over to Vineyard Haven and hightailed it with all of our luggage for a few blocks towards our adorable Inn:

Our room was the one at the top left, with the corner balcony! The Mansion House Inn did not fail to charm us. Complete with nautical colors and beachy comfort, we were happy to finally relax!

Ahh :)

I was beside myself! Finally in Martha's freakin Vineyard! 

After regrouping, we explored Vineyard Haven and set out towards The Black Dog Tavern for lunch. Fish & Chips and a cold beer were on tap. We were slap happy and even spotted a real black dog!

"I feel like I'm in a Pinterest picture!"

Tuesday we headed over to Edgartown and did a little (window) shopping. We also saw the Flagship Vineyard Vine store! I was totally on the lookout for Shep & Ian, but no such luck.

Lunch was had "Among the Flowers"

And I found a few dream homes to add to my list!

I. Could. Die:

I'll be back soon enough (sooner than my slack job of blogging lately) to share more!
