Martha's Vineyard

a seagull
I spent a few days on Martha's Vineyard, Thursday Sept 12 - Monday September 16. My parents and sister were there. Although I didn't do that much exploring (I've been there many times before), I took some pictures of the area.

This is the first part of a trip.
The second was to Walden Pond.
The third was to Rochester.

The Ferry Ride

Often in recent years, I'd just fly myself from Ithaca to Martha's Vineyard. This year, since there were other places I was going after this, I drove to Falmouth, MA, parked my car there, and then took the ferry from Woods Hole to Martha's Vineyard.

Sunsets from the Deck

There's a little pond next to the house, and beyond it, we get nice sunsets visible from the porch. Here are a few sunset pictures.

Vineyard Haven

I spent some time on Monday morning wandering around Vineyard Haven, by the shops, the water, and a few blocks away by houses. Vineyard Haven is also sometimes known as Tisbury.
