Family Vacation | Martha’s Vineyard

I’ve been dying to blog our family vacation to Martha’s Vineyard ever since we got back last summer, but alas, work comes first sometimes. Well, now is my chance to relive some really great experiences in one of favorite places to vacation. This year we rented a rustic little “Writer’s Cottage” which was VERY secluded and right on a pond which led to the Atlantic. What I love about MV is just how rustic/unspoiled it is, combined with its diverse topography and its perfect size for exploring. There are amazing beaches, some with clay cliffs, free form casual rock sculptures, an incredible little fishing village, farms, forests, great biking, quaint towns, sailing, awesome views of stars, nature preserves, the agricultural fair, art galleries, and I could go on and on, but you get the point. In fact, while we were there we saw President Obama. Ok, maybe it was just his motorcade! I can’t wait to get back, but for now, enjoy some of my photos from our vacation.

One of the farms we visited on MV. I had to wait a long time to get this one!Not what you think!Long day.This is one of the ferries you need to take to get to MV.I love when stuff like this happens!We went for a small adventure on one of the Black Dog’s tall ships.This is my favorite beach, not only for the clay cliffs, but also for the random rock sculptures people make.This little seal decided to bask right on our little private beach next to our kayak. Of course we named her Lousille.This is a view down Scrubby Neck road, one of the roads leading to our Writer’s Cottage.The stars were the most amazing I had ever seen.And what are vacation photos without some shots of the little ones?This was fun. I didn’t have a tripod with me, so I had to rig up a crate I found and prop the camera up to the right angle with some rocks. Then I found a couple of large rocks and threw them up over the water, and lit them with my head lamp.
