I called a time-out day today.

We set the alarm and was on the road by 7am. We drove to Falmouth and caught the 9am Island Queen Ferry to Martha’s Vineyard. We arrived Oak Bluff and got a day unlimited bus pass. We started by heading to the furthest point about 20 miles away to Aquinnah.
We passed through the small towns of West Tisbury and Chilmark along the way. When we arrived in Aquinnah, we took a short hike to the Gay Head Lighthouse and the overlooks to the Gay Head Cliffs. Now we hopped the bus and went to Tisbury (also known as Vineyard Haven). We walked along the beach and through the town. Back on the bus to Oak Bluff. We walked through town and the waterfront. The return ferry at 345p was packed. The ferry and public bus worked out great for us. We had a good time in Martha’s Vineyard.
Now we met Ted and Janice for dinner at Golden Sails Chinese restaurant in Falmouth.
Ted had to head home early today. We may see him and Janice for dinner tomorrow, but if not, we said our “See you somewhere’s”. Now John needs a good walk. So I sent him off on a hike and he came back after 4 miles. I relaxed and did some reading. We headed to Flynn’s Irish pub for drinks and dinner. They had a small band singing Irish tunes. I got up and danced with the kids when they sang “Green Alligators and Long Neck Geese.
Ted has projects to do today and we are exploring the area. We headed down to the Cape Cod Canal bike path. We walked along the canal and watched the boats and fisherman. Now we are heading to Plymouth. This is where the pilgrims came ashore back in 1620. We walked along the waterfront, had a ranger talk at and about the Plymouth Rock. There was a festival going on so we listened to some music for a while. Now we need a break and some food. So we stopped for some New England Clam Chowder. We’ve explored Plymouth so we headed home. Now it’s cocktail time with Ted. We relaxed over at his site until sunset.
