After Jen finished finals way back in May, I took a few days off work so that we could go to Falmouth and Martha’s Vineyard. We had a very pleasant, relaxing trip, staying at a delightful bed & breakfast (The Inn on the Sound) and doing a lot of biking.

In Falmouth we biked the Shining Sea Bike Trail, which runs about 3 miles to Woods Hole. It’s pretty short, but it was in good condition and ran alongside the water. The next day we took the ferry to Martha’s Vineyard (with our bikes). The first leg of our ride was from Oak Bluffs to Edgartown, and it was absolutely beautiful, with water on both sides for a significant portion of it. After wandering around Edgartown we headed northeast to Vineyard Haven. While the bike path was separate from the road, this was not as scenic, and there were small caterpillars dangling from the trees. In Vineyard Haven we wandered around and ate dinner. We biked back to Oak Bluffs before an evening thunderstorm raced past.

The Martha’s Vineyard towns were small and quaint. There are a few chains that have locations in every town. Would love to go back some time to spend a night or two there; this trip we were confined to the northeast part of the island. I’ve posted a few of my favorite photos.
