Fourth of July – The Day After

Posted on July 10, 2011 by under Travel.    

The next day was the day we designated for Martha’s Vineyard. Our first stop was Enterprise so we could get a car for the day. We needed it to get to Woods Hole where we hop on the ferry that will take us to the island.

At first we were going to try to make the 9:30 AM ferry to Oak Bluffs. We got a little lost trying to get out of Boston, though, so we decided that we’d just try to make the 10:45 AM ferry to Vineyard Haven instead. Their highways are just plain crazy. And driving through the Big Dig (or Big Dug since it’s done now) is scary. =P

After we determined that we weren’t going to make the 9:30 AM ferry, we didn’t have to rush around anymore so stopped by a Dunkin Donuts along the way for some much-needed breakfast. This was probably 1000 calories at least!

Did I mention that I also had a sausage, egg and cheese croissant? Yes.. I had very poor nutrition on this trip. Sorry, John!

So anyway, we thought we had all this time to make it to the ferry at Woods Hole but after the trouble we had finding the parking lot and having to be bussed over to the terminal we were too late for the 10:45 AM ferry also. We had just enough time to make the noon ferry. After purchasing our round trip tickets, we only had a short wait until embarkation.

Jay decided he wanted to jump off the bridge on the way back to Oak Bluffs.
