We’re in Martha’s Vineyard! We’re staying close to a town called Edgartown (redundant) at a bed & breakfast we found through Airbnb . Yesterday we rented bicycles and took a ferry to Chappaquiddick Island (‘Chappy’ Island). We then biked several miles to a beach with a sandbar. Some locals told us that Chappaquiddick used to be connected to Martha’s Vineyard (‘the mainland’) by a sandbar very close to where we were, but the sandbar was covered in a storm two years ago.

A section of the beach was closed off for the birds, and you could see crab carcasses and bird crap strewn about. Bleh.

We spent the rest of the afternoon at the beach and biking back to Edgartown. The weather was perfect for cycling.

For dinner we went to a place called the Seafood Shanty for, obviously, sea food. I had a delicious plate of fried shrimp and coleslaw, yum.

I never want to leave Martha’s Vineyard. It’s so beautiful. I’m made for beach life. 🙂

I’m currently at DCA (Washington) airport. I completely forgot to mention this the other day, but we’re heading to Boston to visit an obscure ant/aunt. The flight is practically free, thanks to accumulated milage points, but for that it’s also a roundabout journey. With 4 hours (!) in Washington. I’m passing my time by reading Pride and Prejudice (an education) and using up all of my 3G (wasteful, bad M).

Here’s a pic, solid proof.
