More Martha's Vineyard

Back to our adventures in Martha's Vineyard...
I had heard about these houses called the Gingerbread houses and that everyone who goes to Martha's Vineyard absolutely must see them.  So we got on our bikes and ventured forth to see them.
They are very cute cottages and most of them are kept up very well...although not all.  There are even a few up for sale.  So if you don't mind people walking around taking pictures of your house all the time, and having to keep your house painted all adorable all the time, well, go on and buy one!  You could live on Martha's Vineyard in a famous neighborhood.

There's a nice park in the center of the neighborhood where we hung out and had some snacks first.

I loved all the plants on this one...

This one is apparently the most photographed one.  It is very cute!

The next day, our anniversary, we decided to go to the beach.  On the map it didn't look that far away so we decided to walk.  Our rearends were kind of sore and we figured walking would be fun anyway, it was a nice day...

It was a long long walk.

It was enjoyable and all that but much farther than we thought it would be! 

Here are some sights from the walk:

We stopped by a cemetary on the way, since it was Memorial day.  I liked this bird.

This cool bi-plane gave people tours of the island.  Frank really wanted to do it...
Too expensive!

Walking walking walking

Carter took this picture of Frank and I.
You know, I really like this skirt...or I did...but I don't love this picture of me from behind.  Geez!  Could I look more like a box? urgh.

Finally we arrived at the beach!
It was lovely.

I thought this picture of Frank was hilarious!

We didn't walk back home.  We caught the bus.  Yep, there was a bus!  Took us like 15 minutes to get back to the hotel, or at least that's what it felt was way faster.  We were glad we didn't walk back.  Best 3 bucks we ever spent.

And last, but not least, after our wonderful vacation was over, we headed back home on the ferry.  I was smart and took some dramamine.  And we played Uno.  It was fun.
The whole vacation was a smashing success.

  1. That trip looks so fun. Laying around, no schedule, hanging out perfection. Thanks for sharing! Let's buy one of those houses together for a vacation house.
