And so, you might add, "You were on an island with beaches all week and you didn't go to the beach?" Well, finally, we did!
It was the last day but our plane didn't leave till five so we took off for the beach between Edgartown and Oak Bluffs.
Gorgeous day! We arrived early in the morning -- only a few people were there when we got there -- we even beat the life guard!
But it didn't take long for big, beachy umbrellas to pop up and for families to start jumping in the water!
This beach is on Nantucket Sound and unlike the smaller beach we briefly checked out the day before, the sand was glorious and the water was surprisingly warm.
The seagulls were out in full force -- and I have to say they were beautiful.
Not particularly bright, but beautiful. Toss a shell their way and they go for it like food!
I don't know that much about gulls but I was surprised there were both the pure white ones and others with gray on their feathers.
I loved the white ones!
As for Rick and me, there was a lot of swimming and a lot of reading and just loving the sun.
People get to the beach a lot of ways! Rick probably would have taken this form of transport if he'd been home!
It's fun talking with the people as you splash around. I loved hearing all the reasons different people came to the Island. And everyone was playing, picnicking, just having fun!
It was tough to take off but on our way home we saw more of the beach and families cycling...
...and people jumping off the famous "Jaws" bridge.
What can I say? It was perfect.
