The trip to Martha’s Vineyard was thoroughly enjoyed by the entire family and will certainly will be a repeat summer destination.
Maya and Sachi returning from our final lighthouse after defying the “No Trespassing” sign.
Our morning destination was the Clay Cliffs of Aquinnah.
On the way to Gay Head, Eric took time out to escort a huge snapping turtle off the road. This took a great bit of courage as this turtle demonstrated why it is called a snapping turtle. I have no doubt that he could have liberated a digit in one quick bite.
Eric and I wandered into the traditional boat building shop of Gannon & Benjamin. One of the craftsman took timeout to explain some of the materials and techniques used in their shop.
The kids were all exhuasted after the day at the beach.
We enjoyed breakfast at the Black Dog Tavern this morning.
This guy looks like he would make a nice Thanksgiving day meal.
Martha’s Vineyard also features several wild turkeys which I was lucky enough to sneak up on.
On the way home I was able to get a shot of the Osprey that nests at the entrance to the parking lot. I estimate his wingspan was three feet.
Football was the other major passtime. Despite the great defensive effort by Kyle, Nico completes the reception for a touchdown.
Between excursions into the ocean sand construction was the order of the day. Nicolai sitting neck deep in a hole he excavated.
