It was Wednesday now, and Rick's work would be finished at four. So I decided to take off and see more of the island. To be honest, I got lost trying to find Island Alpaca, but after lunch (and better directions!) I got there.
This is an alpaca farm. They also do their own yarns and have a shop with both their own (and other) merchandise. (Yes, I did. Pink alpaca for a scarf and a couple of Christmas gifts, one of which I'm considering keeping because I love it so much!)
I loved these sweet faced animals. You could see them in the barns...
...or out in their pens outdoors where a guide explained a bit about the animals.
I was particularly fond of the white ones.
After that, I picked up Rick and we went to Vineyard Haven. We'd planned to do a bit of shopping there but it was so crowded that we ended up at a beach on the Edgartown end of Main Street.
I'm pretty sure it wasn't Vineyard Haven's best beach. It was very small and the sand wasn't the best. But it was fine for a walk and boat watching.
And to catch a glimpse or two of a gull!
Then it was to Oak Bluffs again. We were drawn back here like moths to a flame.
There was nothing about this little town I didn't adore! (Well, almost nothing)
Our plan was a little shopping and dinner. The shopping was fine. The dinner -- not so much.
Let's just say that if you are on Martha's Vineyard and considering a stop at a restaurant called Beetlebung, check out my trip advisor review first. Very disappointing. Maybe it was a bad night for them. Or maybe we were overly tired and hungry. Either way...we won't be back.
That was the one thing about Oak Bluffs I did not adore!
But then it was an early night because we had big plans for the next day! An early morning ferry to Nantucket!
I am very fortunate to have wonderful next door neighbors. When I first bought my house, Rosie was first to say hello. Over the years I have...
Our recent visit to the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge, MA, brought us face to face with some of the artist's most renowned work...
It's been a whirlwind of a week, (with more to come). I'm having a tough time getting my brain around it but there's a definite ...
