martha's vineyard

We were up early and since the weather was beautiful, jumped on the ferry to Martha's Vineyard. We zipped around the island on mopeds, taking in the sights and admiring the views. I managed to drive on the right side of the road and forced my sister to pump her fist in the air and yell "mopeds rule!" as we drove by far too many people in crisp chinos and pink polo shirts. For a brief moment in time we were a helmet-wearing version of the Kennedy clan meets Sons of AnarchyWe were a little less bad-ass but nevertheless took the vineyard by storm.

sail away

These posts lately have been big on pictures, little on words - a tell tale sign that I'm completely in holiday mode. I've been eating and drinking my way through the East Coast and have had my fair share of beach days (complete with heat rash, thank you very much sensitive skin) and lazy afternoons. With our vacation slowly winding to a close I'm trying to cling on to the last few days by posting the remaining photos from our week in Cape Cod. I'd give anything to be back on this sailboat, watching the sunset without a care in the world.

the holiday

Beautiful weather, beach days, a bit of bowling and bike rides. The holiday continues...

sand dunes & salty air

Thanks to my jet lag I've been waking up at 5am. As someone who normally loves to sleep in, this has opened up a whole new world of possibilities for me.  Who knew how productive the morning can be? Each day we've been getting up early to walk the beach, watch the sunrise and drink copious amounts of Dunkin Donuts iced coffee. Just as we get back the rest of the house is waking up so we've been lounging around in the mornings playing with the baby and trying to entertain the dog (who's still depressed about the baby's arrival and his sudden fall on the priority list - he's very sensitive).

Just like my childhood, I still love doing the same things when we're down the Cape: bike rides to the Kennedy compound and checking out the weathered shingles on all the beautiful seaside homes, walking around downtown and checking out the shops that haven't changed in 20 years, going out for lobster rolls and coming home to hang out in the hammock and a backyard bbq.  It's been five years since I've been here but it always feels familiar, like nothing has changed. That's probably why I'm loving it so much...
