Rough waters and winds at Oak Bluffs today!

So the Ferry from Woods Hole on the mainland had to land at Vineyard Haven. We then had the option of staying there and touring around or taking a bus over to Oak Bluffs ... we choose the latter.

The Town of Oak Bluffs is a resort town on the northeast shore of Martha's Vineyard.

Port of Vineyard Haven

The waters were calmer at Vineyard Haven so the Ferry landed there. If we had more time, we would have stayed awhile here to look around, but we wanted to see the Gingerbread Houses and do some shopping.

End of Summer Sidewalk Sale!

Glad we went over to Oak Bluffs, since they had their end of summer sales going on. Fun!

Here's Mary and Shirley with her new hat.

    Missed the Illuminations this year. sigh. Just can't be everywhere all at the same time. Late season shopping trip looks like a fun idea.
