Martha's Vineyard

10.04.2012

How is everybody? We had been enjoying picture perfect weather until yesterday which was the  day we had scheduled to take the ferry over to Martha's Vineyard. I have wanted to visit this island for so long and we got up to FOG. Gobs and gobs of FOG. The visibility was less than 1/8 of a mile. But did that stop us from going. No, of course not. We only had this time to go. So enjoy these foggy shots I grabbed from the cargo ferry we took over and our little walk around Edgartown.

I took this shot from inside the restaurant where we had lunch.


This one was also taken from inside the restaurant. It was so foggy you can barely make out the island in the foreground where a small three car ferry was going back and forth from this side to the other.




This is an old railroad track that used to be on the ground and ran to the other island that they are now using the small ferry for.


Bank on this corner.

And this old one across the other corner.



We also missed going to Nantucket because of the poor weather. You just can't plan what mother nature is going to throw at you. Mr. Savvy knew how disappointed I was and said when he retires we will try to do this again if I want. My luck it will rain again.

I have been sharing snippets on facebook, so be sure and follow me there and I will share some pretty sunny pictures from our first couple of days in Connecticut here on the blog soon. We stayed in Falmouth, Ma. for the last two days with easy access to Martha's Vineyard and Nantucket. It is really a pretty little town with lots of shops and restaurants.

We return home Friday and then the fun part begins of unpacking and doing the laundry and back to taking Miss Bailey on walks. Got to get off the stuff I ate this week.

Thanks to Debbie and Laura for guest posting this week and thanks to everyone who joined the Wow party which is still going. Be sure and come back tomorrow for the Favorite Room series guest poster.

Have a super weekend!

  17. Oh, I was there last March, and I really fell in love with Martha's Vineyard, and especially Edgartown! I'm sure it was lovely, even in the fog! Thanks for the photos, it took me back!

  18. So glad you're having a great time! It was foggy the day we visited Martha's Vineyard as well. What's up with that?? Looking forward to hearing more about your trip and seeing pictures.

  19. Hi Kim, I wish I could tell you how many times I've been fogged in on the Vineyard! Once we had a house closing in the morning so we left the airport and waited at the ferry until it started running, went over to the Cape, then up to Boston to the airport, and got home just in time in the morning!! But Edgartown is a wonderful place and we just love it. Looking forward to your pictures of my CT! Linda

  20. Just lovely. And what a wonderful time to visit. We have traveled from Texas to Massachusetts for the Brimfield antique show each May for the last three years. We made into Martha's Vineyard and Edgartown, but sadly, we haven't made it to Nantucket yet. Maybe next year. Can you share where the thrift store was located?
    Smiles,

  31. Actually I loved the photo's because of the fog, like out of a mystery novel. You inspired me to visit the east coast once again, will have to begin planning now. (getting out bucket list).

    Love that the photo's and fonts on your blog, are larger than normal so much more easy to enjpy your posts.

  32. So sorry you didn't get to go to Nantucket. I know you must have been disappointed. The weather is definitely unpredictable in that part of the country this time of year. Thanks so much for sharing the photos. They're beautiful.

    Safe trip home.

  34. I know I might be a little weird...but I love fog! In Ferrara we have fog all the times in the fall and winter months...sometimes for weeks before we see the sun again.

  35. Well, two out of three isn't bad! I've always wanted to go. One of these days! Any good antique shops that didn't cost an arm and a leg? Hard to imagine! Glad you had fun!

    ReplyDelete
  36. Ah bummer. I've always thought Nantucket sounded fun too. I hope you get to go again and that the weather behaves for you!

    ReplyDelete
  37. I'm sorry you didn't have better weather but your foggy shots are still really pretty! Can't wait to see more photos!

  38. Kim...these photos are fantastic..Love the fog!..one day I shall make it there....sorry about Nantucket....

  39. Kim, you're kicking it in my part of the world! I grew up in Falmouth. Although I now live in Nashua, NH (just 2.5 hrs to the Cape), I have family there and visit often.

  40. Your pictures are lovely, Kim. I'm so glad you were able to come up and visit my part of the country. I think Autumn (with or without fog) is the loveliest time of year to wander on the islands and the Cape.
