Vineyard Round Up

There were so many adventures during a week on the Vineyard; here’s a roundup of everything we didn’t already cover!

MV Beach Day

It’s not a trip to Martha’s Vineyard without a visit to the beach. We had an exciting one, with breakfast at the airport, wave riding, a shark sighting and all the sun we could take in. South Beach never disappoints!

Fishing Expedition

In a family first, we ventured out on the Skipper for a fishing expedition in the waters around Martha’s Vineyard. We faced a little rain but that didn’t stop the excitement of reeling in a big one. Everyone had the chance to catch a “keeper”, helping others eat a fish feast that evening!

Up Island

With friends in tow, we saw some of the best parts of Up Island on the Vineyard, including Aquinnah for some views and lighthouse climbing, and Menemsha Hills for a 3-mile hike to the beach and back. Needless to say, we wore the kids out after a couple of days!

Back to The Vineyard

It had been four years, but we finally returned to Martha’s Vineyard to enjoy some tried and tested spots for a summer vacation. And this time, we had friends to share the experience. But first, we had an action-packed 24 hours that included some favorite destinations and a rare trip to the agricultural fair.

Making the Most of NYC

We packed in a bit more adventure during our New York trip, including eating some local favorites – pizza and bagels! The National Museum of Math was our last attraction, and quite a fun one. We’ll be back again asap!

Father’s Day in the Big Apple

With a great first day under our belt, we went for an even better one given it was Father’s Day. That meant a major tourist site, some delicious BBQ, and a day ending with chocolate. A great way to celebrate our #1 dad!


The boys ventured to NYC for the first time and had a great time in the Big Apple. We saw major sights, ate great food and explored during a beautiful summer weekend. Our first day was a lot of firsts, including first Amtrak ride, first (off) Broadway show and first visit to Times Square!

Witch Hunting and More in MA

We spent a fair bit of our time in Boston outside the city, experiencing new places like Salem and catching up with good friends. After weather delayed our arrival by 6 hours, we were treated to a lovely weekend the rest of our stay!
