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.

I kind of dropped off the face of the earth for a while, sorry about that. And now I’m back and school is about to start, so you know, who knows? I’m spending my remaining days of freedom on Polyvore, creating sets and drinking coffee. Hence the creation of the above masterpiece. I also went to the county fair thing, really quite amusing. And hot. Cute animals though, and none were brutally slaughtered for the crowd’s amusement, as I imagined. Which is good, ’cause being a vegetarian, I would have been forced to step in, much to my embarrassment. And the girls parading around in daisy dukes and cowboy boots can’t be left out either. Hey that rhymes! A tune with the name of Jessica Simpson.

Well. I was walking Boris today, and we passed this really big, friendly, Clifford-like dog. Cringing already. So I bend down and scratch his belly and he pees on my hand! Contaminated hands! I dragged poor Boris home and scrubbed my hands for five minutes. And then the sink for an additional ten. Definitely the highlight of my day!

Moving on to a slightly cleaner and much prettier subject. I stumbled upon Saddleback Leather Co.  I love the rugged yet useable/durable style they exude. Me being me, I’m already dreaming of them. I especially love the Backpack in Chestnut. Beautiful, no?
