We headed off today and the weather was just beautiful and the ride was thoroughly enjoyable and we got in to have plenty of time to wander about the streets. When we first arrived the streets were packed but the crowds had diminished somewhat by the time we headed out which was nice.
There were more bikes, mopeds, jeeps and everything else you could think of for hire at Martha’s Vineyard and a lot of it was just a stone’s throw from our hotel
Parked up at Oaks Bluff waiting to load on the ferry
And this was the view from where we waited to get on the ferry at Oaks Bluff
And a view of the ferry (The Governor) Sharen and Ken crossed on, we both loaded at the same time and we got on a larger one than them
This is a view of one of the docks in Newport Rhode Island, sort of a Newport Version of Constitution Dock in Hobart. There were heaps of yachts coming and going and we saw some of the New Zealand crew. Needless to say the locals are pretty stoked that the American team won the Americas Cup
A sneak peek inside the door of the Vanderbilt Grace Hotel and Spa (not staying there but looked yummy)
And this is more of the decoration at the door with the pumpkin harvest theme included which is very popular at the moment
A view down Thames Street virtually empty. When we rode up here we literally had to duck and weave through the foot traffic
And the view from our Hotel room window…very nice though we may not think so after the bar and grill next door ramps up tonight…we will see
Bits and Bobs:
Hi Cory, we saw 2 Cory Lanes today, 1 we rode on and the other we rode past.
Saw some good T Shirts which would appeal to my brother Bryan but couldn’t pick between them all. Sorry mate!
And a litter sign we have seen a lot of in Massachusetts
Last 2 night’s Accommodation:
9 Circuit Avenue Extension
Oak Bluffs, Martha’s Vineyard, MA 02557
A very nice building, comfortable room, generous inclusions with snacks and tea and coffee available all day and continental breakfast as well as a beach room (towels, eskies, deck chairs, boards, ice and ice buckets), Jacuzzi, and a welcome cookie and glass of champagne. What can I say? Bed beautifully comfortable and handy to wharf side restaurants and anything you may want like rental cars, jeeps, Vespa’s, pushbikes and tour buses but I’m glad we have our own transport. A comfortable spot to drop.
