cape cod: day three

For day three, we decided it might be time to peel ourselves away from the beach and check out what else the Cape had to offer. We decided on a short trip to Martha's Vineyard. It was a short but sweet trip to this little island oasis. Had our children both not been hit with high fevers, we would have loved to stay on the island a bit longer to explore it's beauty, but instead, we had to call it quits after a brief stay.

The day started out with lots of excitement as we got to board a ferry. Both kiddos loved cruising along in such a big boat as the wind was blowing through their hair. As we arrived closer to the port there were a sea of beautiful sailboats. We had a chance to visit two of the small towns on the island, they were both unique in their own way but what they both had in common were the friendly people we met along the way.

Our first stop was to have lunch. I thought the prices would be astronomical, but to my surprise, the prices were more than fair, the food was delicious and the portions were huge. After our bellies were full, we decided to take the afternoon to just walk around looking at the beautiful colonial houses and beaches that surrounded us.

Little Miss L. had one request while we were in Oak Bluffs and that was to ride the oldest carousel in the United States. Her wish came true as daddy brought her to see the horses flying around in a circle to that classic music. Little Miss L. thought it was pretty cool and if she hadn't been feeling under the weather, I am sure she would have made us ride it all day long.

To get her mind off the carousel, we headed for some ice cream to finish off our time on the island. As we boarded the ferry to head back, we watched the sailboats as they passed by. I would definitely return to Martha's Vineyard, and as much as I love my children, it may be an adults only adventure as it would have been nice to visit vineyards and do a little wine tasting with the hubby :)
