We took a local bus tour of all six towns in Martha’s Vineyard (with a short stop at Aquinnah) and then spent most of the day in Edgartown.

We actually got to see a good enough of them. It was a nice day out. Only thing was J got seasick a little bit through but he got to see some of the whales before he was out of commissioned.

It was a great little weekend trip overall. If anyone is looking for a little break this summer, I definitely recommend a couple of days out in Cape Cod and Martha’s Vineyard.

Til next time,
